I. Love. Plaid. I love the preppiness, how easily you can pair it with a solid and how it represents my favorite season – winter. I especially love blackwatch plaid because it’s so classic and just a great combination of pretty colors. I saw these Theory pants in Bloomies last week and loved them for work with an ivory sweater (or a navy blazer for the formal days). I put this s. vs s. a few days early simply because I don’t want the steal to sell out!! JCrew Factory has a pair (they look a bit loud in this photo but they’re a bit more tame in person) and these are a great alternative for when you aren’t in the mood to spend a lot of casheesh on pants that aren’t long enough to wear all season long. I am also loving the C Wonder denim version in case you want to bring these to your weekend wardrobes!
