A Plaid-On-Plaid Outfit You'll Love — Promise!

Sporting mismatched plaids may not be an obvious choice for your work outfit, but trust us when we say that it's a total wardrobe game changer. Usually, we decide between a patterned top or bottom, but really, why not both? Mixed prints have been featured all over the runway the past few seasons, and clearly the trend isn't losing steam. It's exactly what Belstaff's pre-fall 2014 collection is serving up best. The trick to nailing the plaid-on-plaid look is focusing on coordinating color schemes so that neither print overpowers the other. Here, we opted for a black-and-white palette, accenting the ensemble with a deep, oxblood tone for added depth. Pull-on ankle boots (paired with fuzzy socks!), an olive satchel, and a funky watch turn this outfit into an essential cool-girl staple to wear this winter. And, if you're really daring, you'll top it off with a matching statement coat, too!
