There’s a new fall trend putting a smile on my face that I’m excited to share with you. So today, I’m partnering with JCPenney, who offers great style and value for all, to bring you 2 on-trend ways to wear plaid pants.
Now, plaid pants are not new, and the idea of wearing a conservative, busy print on your 40+ bottom may not thrill you at first, but I want you to take a look at these. The plaid pants we’re seeing for fall 2018 fall are vastly different from the boring, uptight plaid pants we wore to work years ago, or the funky colored plaid bell bottoms of the 70’s.
Fall’s plaid pants come in fresh new styles and have a more relaxed vibe, which means you’ll look anything but dowdy. They’re the perfect solution when you are trying to figure out what to wear to look classy and contemporary. Here’s what I mean.
Kick up your heels because windowpane checks are hot, and I think you’ll agree they are one of the chicest plaids around. I love these gorgeous, black windowpane check pants from JCPenney for many reasons. First of all, they look modern because of their feminine, flowy silhouette. The bootcut flares are flirty and fun; there’s nothing stiff about them!
These pants are also lightweight and soft, not scratchy like some, and the elastic waistband at the back makes them super comfy to wear.
Many of you have been asking me for high-quality, stylish pieces that are truly affordable, so I was thrilled to discover that JCPenney has a huge variety of on-trend pieces at excellent pricepoints. Plus they have their big Fall sale going on now too. My pants, for example, are only $16.99 with code 6SAVEBIG (regular $54.00). You can’t beat that!
The other great thing I discovered about JCPenney is that it’s a one-stop shopping destination. I bought my entire outfit in one go, including my pretty black top, elegant knit poncho, sophisticated tassel handbag, suede heels, jewelry, and even my cool sunglasses. That is super convenient.
I was also happy to find that JCPenney carries a lot of contemporary brands like Liz Claiborne, Worthington, a.n.a., Belle + Sky, Bold Elements and St. John’s Bay. Everything is so well curated that it makes it easy to mix pieces and create complete outfits.
Here’s a closer look at these great pants and the cute tie waist which is so “in” for fall. I’ve teamed them up with a simple crewneck tee to keep the look unfussy and fresh.
One tip I’d like to pass along is to wear a chunkier heel with this style of pants. Flats can look dumpy with wide pants unless you are blessed with long legs. A thicker heel is also better than a skinny heel to balance out the width of the pants. These rich, black suede sandals work perfectly with this look and will go with so many other things in your closet too.
You may have noticed that red is a key color this season, so adding a red statement necklace and bag give my outfit a modern punch.
Now, if you’re the type of gal who prefers a skinny leg pant, then you will be happy to know that plaid leggings are also trending.
I picked up this really cute pair by Liz Claiborne. They have a Glencheck plaid pattern that has been printed onto stretchy, flat front leggings.
Here’s a better look at this very traditional tartan which looks totally updated in a stretchy fabric and a sleek legging cut. My cheery red tie blouse has sporty 3/4 length sleeves and pretty wrist ties.
Both of these plaid outfits are fabulous, and they’re ON SALE at the JCPenney Fall Sale until September 23rd. So don’t miss out!
