Splurge vs. Save: Plaid Skirt


Today was my first day of classes and something about the first day of school always reminds me of sweaters, plaid, and headbands regardless of the fact that I’m 20 years old. School brings out the prep in all of us, and what better way is there to ring in the new school year than with a school related outfit post.

I’ve always been drawn to more classic styles, with Ralph Lauren being one of my favorite designers. Luckily for me, this fall season is filled with prep-like fashions. Plaid is back and nothing says prep to me like a plaid skirt.


I’m partial to the color brown. It was so many different shades and looks good on everyone. This Tory Burch Hawthorne Wool Plaid Skirt is different from the typical plaid pattern, but it fits the model perfectly. This skirt is $325 and is available at


Slightly different, but still similar, this Anne Klein Plaid Skirt doubles over the front and has six buttons, giving it a more preppy feel. This skirt is available at for $89.

Would you wear a plaid skirt?
