#deestyles | Valentine’s Outfit Idea # 1





Hi luvs,

Lately I’ve been obsessed with plaid shirts! They are so cozy, comfortable and perfect for when you want that laid back look! You can get so much wear out of a plaid shirt, It’s one item that you can literally wear all year through, no matter the weather! It’s perfect for fall with some skinny pants and high boots, layer it with your favorite coat during winter, wear it over a maxi dress in spring and with some shorts over the summer. Plus they come in all sorts of shades, so you can grab a couple in a bunch of colors and switch ‘em up with existing pieces in your wardrobe.

I decided to create a Valentine’s outfit centered around my new obsession. I love the idea that a plaid shirt allows you to wear red on Valentine’s day without feeling tacky. To glam up this casual shirt, I added a statement necklace.

I paired the shirt with a leather panel midi skirt for some edge. Panel leather is a great trend, if you want to mix two textures or simply don’t want to go full on leather. The skirt has a jersey material which stretches to compliment the shape of your body.  I then added some blue ankle strap heels, which compliment the shades of blue on the plaid shirt.

This is a great outfit if you’re going on a blind date, a first date, after work date or if you’ll be going out for drinks with some pals. It allows you to be comfortable and laid back but yet dressed up!

Outfit: Plaid Shirt – The New Yorker (Similar: here, here, here & here ), Leather Panel Midi Skirt – ASOS Old (I also love these: Here, Here & Here), Ankle Strap Heels – New Look ASOS (Similar: Here & Here), Statement Necklace – Accessorize (I also love these: here, here & here)

    Could you be any more chic than you are right here? Possibly not. The pop of cobalt in those heels? Perfect. The flannel mixed with a little leather? So fierce.
