Striking in Plaid

by | Mar 27, 2018 | Fashion, Travel | 4 comments

Today I’m wearing my favourite vintage high waisted checkered pants that I got some years ago from my favourite vintage store, Beyond Retro.
Beyond retro has always been my first stop for vintage clothes. There’s always so much on there and it makes me day dream about life in the 20’s, 60’s and 80’s era. My favourite era been the 20’s.
As you know the plaid trend was really hot during the fall season and is still in for the spring/summer season so I wanted to share this look with you before I begin posting spring content.

My favourite thing about these pants is the fact that it’s checkered of course. I mean, who doesn’t love a good pair of plaid pants. I also dig the high waist and they’re quite a warm pair because of the texture, which makes it perfect for the chilly weather in London.

I paired it with a brown textured puff sleeve top from Zara, as I felt it complemented the pants really well. My first choice in terms of colour was a mustard or dark green top but I couldn’t find the perfect one in mustard so I went ahead to style it with a brown one. Although, this top also comes in green and black but I preferred in brown. I don’t think I can ever get tired of the puff sleeves. It always has a way of adding some cuteness to your outfit.
I accessorised lightly with a little bit of jewellery along with some brown and beige colour blocked heels from Zara, a pair of aviator sunglasses for a retro touch and a Valentino bag.
Let’s talk about location. Today’s location features the old red telephone boxes at Covent Garden. My pants are vintage and it was only right that I found a location to complete the vintage look. Covent Garden is perfect for finding old telephone boxes and quite a lot of them are scattered all over. The only downside to shooting at Covent Garden is that it’s always so busy, as there’s lots to do down there. I tend to go down there pretty often myself. However, it’s always a pretty place for photos regardless.
