Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! Today marks our fourth week of our blogger challenge. Wow, time sure does go by quickly! This week's trend topic is tartan/plaid. Plaid is a classic print that has been around for a while now and also one of my favorite prints to wear during the colder seasons. I have a few plaid flannel button downs that I wear lounging around the house and oversized scarves that I can wrap myself up with like a blanket. Something about plaid and red together that makes it so cozy and festive which is perfect for the holiday seasons that are right around the corner.

Top : Cropped Sweatshirt from Topshop (similar here and here), Turtleneck from Uniqlo (here)

Accessories : Bracelet from C. Wonder (similar here), Necklace from Gorjana,
Rings from Gorjana (similar here)

With the trend topic being tartan/plaid, I decided to style my outfit around this cropped sweatshirt. Although crop tops are great for the warmer seasons, it works just as well in the fall. When styling crop tops or summer tops in general for the fall, I like to layer a fitted long sleeve top underneath. It keeps me warm without adding bulk. If the outfit permits, sometimes you can even get away with it looking like a one piece rather than two separate pieces.

Thank you so much for reading! :)


  1. I love this look! I'm still on the fence wearing leggings as pants (I typically wear them under dresses or really long shirts that cover my backside!), but I think this outfit may have changed my mind. :)

  2. Fantastic look! Love your take on the plaid trend, and how you made the crop top look like a sweater!

  3. Love your plaid top!! Was looking forward to seeing this post after hearing you talk about it :) I love how you put the Uniqlo heattech top underneath it for the added layer and warmth. You're slowly convincing me to buy one myself from this post and the one with the faux vest. I wasn't sure I could make it look fashionable...but you've totally changed my mind :) Have a great week!! xx

  4. This is a fabulous collaboration, and you look great! I hadn't thought of layering crop tops like this. Thanks for the idea! :) I'm sure after this, you could definitely rock plaid pants even though you said you can't! Great outfit!!

  5. i love this top on you and the plaid color is so perfect for the holiday season! and you really rock those leather leggings!
