"I’m in love with anything plaid. Most of my plaid shirts are standard, boy-like button downs; when I found this silky, v-neck top version of my favorite pattern, I knew I had to have it.
The styling possibilities here are endless. The cropped length and plunging neckline make it sophisticated enough to wear to a chic event (which I can't say for any of my other plaid tops). Through the winter months I'll be layering this top over a turtleneck to highlight the dramatic neckline. Come summer, I'll wear it slinked off the shoulder.
I'm really into juxtaposing my new, polished plaid top with one of my trusty flannels worn around the waist. I love how the colors play off of each other, and how the two create a clashing grid of lines. Together, the look is totally me."
