How I Updated a Classic Plaid Shirt

How I Updated a Classic Plaid Shirt

Hi loves! The weather in Dubai is so gorgeous right now, so it’s time to bring out some of my favorite fall pieces. Plaid shirts are a classic staple in my fall/winter wardrobe. I became obsessed with plaid shirts when I discovered the brand Rails about five years ago. Their shirts’ quality and versatility inspired me to push the limits of how I styled the piece.

Here, I’m wearing a Rails plaid shirt I’ve had for several years (similar here and here). The great thing about Rails is that their pieces are timeless. I still have and wear every shirt I have bought from them over the past five years. The light blue fabric lining the the shirt adds a nice contrast when I roll up the sleeves. Having the shirt look good with the sleeves rolled up or down makes this a piece great for transitional weather.

I wanted to style the shirt in a way to make it a bit more fashion. Instead of pairing it with jeans, I went for my Alexander Wang black wrap skit (similar on sale here and here). I love that this skirt is a basic with a twist. The asymmetrical draping creates a long vertical line drawing the eye to the detailing at the top which emphasizes the smallest part of my waist and creates the illusion of a thinner silhouette.

Clean white sneakers are my favorite way to polish a casual look. The pair I’m wearing from Gucci pulls the red and white colors in my top down to my feet making the outfit cohesive. I also like this Adidas pair as a sporty option.

Finally, I finished the look with a handmade leather bag from Blue Hour London. I love buying leather bags from local businesses when I travel. I picked this up from their stall at Broadway market while I was in London last month. So many brands are global, buying from a local business is a way to find something truly unique that reminds me of my trip.
