OK — gimme all the skorts, please, especially if they’re plaid. How is this trend just now a thing? It’s just the right amount of nostalgia for my Catholic school days without looking childish and/or creepy (if you get my drift…).

I bought this plaid skort over the summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have been patiently waiting to wear it ever since. Now that the weather finally feels like fall, I feel justified in pulling this piece out of my closet.

Because the weather wasn’t too chilly, I decided to pair the skort with an old bell sleeve top. (Oddly enough it’s the same brand as the skort). Adding to that my favorite boots of the season and you have a fool-proof fall outfit! I got so many compliments on this look and it’s really so simple.

But back to the plaid skort — like I said, I bought this over the summer, so there are only a few left. But good news is it’s on major sale in select sizes! So because of the limited quantity, I thought I’d share some other plaid skorts I’m loving this season. Happy shopping!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this season is all about plaid. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I can’t run around the city in just my plaid blazer any longer. Solution: find a new way to incorporate the pattern. And I did just that with these adorable pants!

I must admit, I generally don’t wear pants that aren’t either jeans or leggings (with some exceptions to palazzo pants in the summer). So wearing a trouser-style pant of my own accord is a new feeling! Although I could definitely wear these pants to work, I like that they could be dressed down with a sweater and booties for the weekend.

What I really love about the plaid trend this season is that it’s a nice change from your typical plaid flannel patterns. This pattern has a preppier, 1970s vibe that’s a little classier than buffalo plaid.

If plaid trousers still aren’t your thing, the pattern can be incorporated in so many ways. Try throwing on a plaid check coat, or a fun mini skirt instead! If I have convinced you on the plaid trouser front, I’m loving this option from H&M and this option from Nordstrom.

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think in the comments, and happy Wednesday!
