Plaid Jacket Styling

Affordable Winter Fashion

Jacket: Forever 21   Skirt: Forever 21  Turtleneck: Target   Boots: JcPenney

This outfit is one of my favorite combos.  Plaid, corduroy, over the knee boots….say no more! What I love most about it is that all pieces can be worn separately and styled differently.  I am trying to do a better job investing in pieces that can be worn countless ways.  Oh and I almost forget my other favorite part.  This entire outfit is under $100!! Yay! Who doesn’t love affordable fashion. I get so excited when I can put together a cute affordable outfit.

The top and skirt are from Forever 21.  I never expect to much out of the quality from Forever 21 because their pieces are cheap so they aren’t the best made but I was pleasantly surprised by both pieces.  They are definitely doing a better job of choosing heavier fabrics. 

I loved this jacket the second I saw it.  It is so versatile.  It could be worn with jeans, black leggings, dresses….you name it.  I am wearing a size small.  I would have liked the sleeves to be a tad bit longer but I do have really long arms.  So as long as you don’t have monkey arms it will fit you perfect.  The jacket is currently on sale for $20 so you can’t go wrong with this purchase.  They have a TON of other cute plaid jackets, as well, and they all are mostly under $30.  Sizes are getting limited so check it out now!

I sized up in the skirt and am wearing a size medium.  It is listed as a mini skirt and looks pretty short on the model wearing it.  I am tall, 5’9, and my getting a medium, I think it looks less “mini” on me.  I didn’t want it to come off too short especially since it’s 30 degrees here so I paired it with over the knee boots.  These boots are SO comfortable.  I have a similar pair but with a heel so I needed something flat while I am on crutches and my hip is recovering.  Such a great purchase and I will get a ton of wear out of them.  JcPenney has them on sale for only $20!! You read it right!

Happy holidays!
