50’s 60’s 70’s
Plaid for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Business Version
Quote of the day: “The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.” Anonymous
Making plaid work for a day at the office, is as easy as a donning a blazer or cardigan…depending where you work, of course. Keeping your jewelry subdued and heel height appropriate are also good factors to consider.
These same plaid pieces which I styled as a casual look can be seen in Plaids 1 (here).
50’s Plaid (Pants): I’m actually wearing my mother’s cardigan from college under this jacket—meaning it’s really old. Check out how I fixed the elbows (here) in a post.
60’s Plaid (Scarf): To add a plaid flair of style to your blazer, you can place the scarf under the lapels of the jacket. An added benefit is there is no worrying about how to knot the scarf.
70’s Plaid (Skirt): To brighten up this standard office look you can add accessories that will bring interest to the outfit. I love the collar on the cardigan…it makes it look more like a relaxed blazer!
