This season, one of our favorite classic prints has gotten a much-needed update: plaid. While plaid tends to carry a cooler weather vibe, this spring brings us a fresh mix of whimsical and feminine silhouettes in the perfect palette for warmer weather. Everything from suiting to skirts to dresses, tops, and pants have gotten a dose of this trend and we love it. Truly, it’s the perfect addition to your workwear wardrobe in particular, so keep an eye out for gingham pant suits, houndstooth dresses, and more!
Since we are always on the lookout for chic feminine pieces, we were excited to find this mini dress by Veronica Beard. It’s a great transition piece that can easily be layered now and then worn alone when the weather warms up. We love that it carries both a classic and fashion-forward vibe. The button-detailing gives it a sophisticated feel, while the length makes it more fun. It’s a great piece for different occasions whether that’s for a day at the office or a night out.
To add a little length to this look, we paired the dress with a sporty jacket from Kaufmanfranco, and kept the rest of the accessories neutral and feminine: black pumps, black handbag, and tortoise shell sunglasses.
Styling tip: When wearing plaid in a dress, pair it back with black accessories to give the look some edge. If it’s a mini dress like this one, pair it with a long cardigan or jacket during the cooler months.
