One of the major trends of 2017 was the Plaid trend and I’m bringing it back in 2018.
Welcome to another weekend. I hope we all had a great week? Mine was good and pretty exciting, If you keep up with me via Instagram you’ll defintely have caught up on my weekly activities. Follow me if you aren’t 🙂 You’ll not regret it.
Anyway, in today’s style post, I’m styling a plaid jacket I thrifted sometime in 2017 yet had not gotten the chance to style it properly on the blog.
Plaid is one classic pattern that keeps working it’s way into the fashion scene every season. In fact, it is one of the major patterns worn during the Fall and Winter because it is present in flannel shirts, dresses, scarves and coats.

The weather is currently warmer (in Nigeria) and harmattan season is slowly ebbing away yet you can make the Plaid Trend work in 2018.
For this look, I ditched an inner shirt or tee and wore my plaid jacket alone. Rather than button up because of the heat, I cinched the jacket with a brown statement belt. This helps to keep things in check while giving my look a different vibe.
Belted jackets were also a thing in 2017 and it’s something I’ll love to stay in 2018.
While putting this look together, I opted for the easy route, Yes! Denim.
Denim pants practically work with anything so it sure was the best option. You can also go for pants made from lightweight fabric if you can’t stand the heat.Plaid jackets are super versatile and here's an easy way to style them! Click To Tweet
I paired this outfit with the newest addition to my footwear collection and my trusty vintage satchel. Jewelry and accessories were equally kept minimal so as not to draw attention away from my jacket.
Did you also notice how I’m mixing prints in this outfit? If you see it let me know. That’s another way to style plaid – Try the mixed prints route!
This outfit is totally something you can wear to work or a social event depending on your workplace and personal style choices.
