You know I love plaid! I’ve talked about before how fall symbolizes the start of “plaid season” for me. Today I would love to show you even more ways I incorporate this favorite classic into my daily life. I’ll share with you my plaid outfits for day & night along with my style tips. I’ll also show you how plaid showed up in such an unexpected and cute way on one of my everyday essentials.

One of the reasons I never get bored of plaid ( or talking about it LOL) is it’s timeless quality. When you look at pictures of women from decades ago, you can see them wearing similar plaid shirts we know and adore today. Plaid stood the test of time yet the pattern evolves continuously and shows up on contemporary designs. I like to use it in my outfits, as throw  blankets in our living room, or use mugs with a plaid design in my kitchen.

Style Tip: I wanted to infuse my daytime look with plaid and chose to do it through accessories and shoes. This pattern brings life to any outfit even when it is used on a small scale. I also love to mix up different styles such as a classic like plaid with a more edgy piece like my ripped jeans.

I added a black zipped vest . Vests are great for transitional weather and very on trend at the moment. Plaid shoes, and a plaid blanket scarf completed my day look. Taking my cue from the color composition of my plaid accessories, I chose a red bag to carry with me. (a dark green one would look amazing as well. )

PLAID FOR YOUR BATHROOM

Are there any other Target fans among us? I definitely stop by there frequently to stock up on essentials, and check out the pretties they carry in all different departments. Look what I’ve come across at one of my trips. Our mouthwash LISTERINE® dressed up in plaid from Target’s Mad for Plaid Collection.

I immediately grabbed a green one from the in store display and my husband picked his favorite blue. There’s a Cartwheel offer for 10% off the products good from 9/13 to 10/31 in case you would like to dress up your bathroom counter with plaid too. 🙂

This is how my bathroom counter looks with plaid bottles. <3 I rinse my mouth with LISTERINE® twice a day. I learned from my dentist that brushing alone misses 75% of my mouth and leaves behind bacteria. Using mouthwash twice a day kills that bacteria left behind. You get a 100% clean mouth and healthier gums.

I use cool mint and the minty taste almost makes me feel the cleaning/bacteria killing process. 🙂 Love the refreshed taste in my mouth afterwards.

Style Tip: You can easily use plaid for fancier outfits when you pair it with glam pieces and accessories. In this date night outfit, I wore my plaid shirt with a cut out flower faux leather skirt, and spiky patent leather black heels. I think the plaid adds a certain coolness to more dressed up outfits and makes them less fussy. You can also accessorize with a statement piece like my sparkly necklace to add shine to your plaid night time look.

    I stayed away from plaid for a few years because it reminded me of my school uniform (lol), but happily I love plaid again. My favorite way to wear plaid is a cozy blanket scarf.

    • Theboxqueen

      Haha uniforms do that! Mine was yellow and navy and I shied away from those colors until after college. Now they are favorites 🙂 I second you on plaid cozy blanket scarves. They just scream fall and winter to me. Hope you are having a great Monday lovely. XOXO, Elif

    How do you tie your scarf to get that look? Is there a tutorial somewhere? Also would love to know where you bought the scarf, love the colors!

    • Theboxqueen

      I am so happy you liked the look. I’ll make sure to put together a scarf tutorial soon. 🙂 The scarf is this exact one: http://rstyle.me/n/bdazwc5ez6
      I bought it from Nordstrom Rack. Hope this helps! XOXO, Elif

    I like the plaid out fits. It looks cozy. It reminds me my collage years. When I was in collage they were considered very hip and fashionable. Perfect for a winter vacation! I also use Listerine mouth wash,the green one is my favorite.

    • Theboxqueen

      The green one is so refreshing 🙂 I remember plaid at every stage of my life. It is such a classic. Each year I find a new plaid piece I adore. Happy Monday dear. XOXO, Elif
