Plaid Shirtdress Layered Up

One of the new additions to my closet for winter is this plaid dress I found at Gap (during their additional 60% off sale promotion, whoop whoop!). Plaid is right up there with stripes in the "patterns I'm loving right now" game, so I knew that scooping up this dress would be a wardrobe win. Just like my favorite plaid shirts, this dress is very layer-able. For a cold winter day, paired it with a bright cardigan, tights, boots, and a navy printed scarf.

What is your go-to pattern right now? 





Yellow cardigan: Target / navy plaid dress: Gap / scarf: Old Navy / belt: Loft / boots: Mia

  1. This is so cute! I especially love it with the scarf! :) I keep doing the gingham/buffalo check with floral, or stripes with floral. My favorites. Back in the blogging world.. :) XO -Alexandra

  4. This is a really good print mix. My go-to right now is lumberjack plaid in red 'n black. And make it flannel, because it's SO cold!

  7. Thanks Alexandra! I love both of those print mixes too--especially stripes with floral! I just realized I don't think I have any floral in my winter capsule... I'll have to bring it back for spring!!

  10. YES to the flannel--we need it big time around here. It's sad when I start to look forward to weather in the 30s. Heck, even the 20s.

  12. Thanks! I think this dress is a winner--it was one of those "looks awful on the hanger but I'll try it" numbers and I'm glad I did!

  16. The dress was a great find! Cozy and cute, and a great way to get a little more pattern in - but still so versatile.


    Especially since I don't work in an office setting any more, I really don't wear dresses/skirts often in the winter - pretty much just for warmth reasons. I almost didn't put any in my capsule, but sometimes you need them for occasions, and sometimes you just want a little something different. So I appreciate the layering inspiration to warm it up!
