Gray plaid was one of the biggest trends seen on the Autumn/Winter runways this season … and we’re not talking about your dad’s old, stale plaid suit pattern. Instead, designers are revitalizing the print with modern takes on classic plaid patterns. And I couldn’t be happier about this trend. I adore the vintage feel of a gray plaid, but often shy away from this pattern as I don’t typically find pieces that are visually stimulating yet professional enough for my work wear wardrobe.
However, I recently saw the Glen Plaid Jersey Snappy Shirt Dress from Worth New York, and fell completely in love. Not only is this dress incredibly on-trend for the cooler months ahead, it creates a chic and modern way of mixing a classic + elegant gray plaid pattern with pops of bright red and beautiful gun metal snaps down the front as well as on the wrist cuffs.
A classic shirt dress style means that this beauty is flattering for every body shape, and the long sleeves + work-appropriate hem length make the Glen Plaid Dress a winner for tall women everywhere. Plus, the detached belt is finished with a plaid side + a stunning red side, and can be easily reversed depending on the outing.
The underlay of this dress is lined with the same beautiful red color seen in these photos, and though this may seem like a small detail, it creates a visual element that truly brings life and movement when you’re walking to your next client meeting or happy hour.
Two functioning waist pockets + two breast pockets continue to establish a visual element to this elegant dress, and help create a sense of balance above and below the removable belt, especially when pulled tight around the smallest part of your waist. And the print is just divine.
While I love the summer months, I am anxiously awaiting the cooler weather in New York so that I can wear this dress more and more. The coloring is also perfect for winter, and I am already planning on pairing this dress with black tights and black suede booties for the chillier winter months.
Will you be incorporating the gray plaid trend into your wardrobe this fall?
