It’s that time of year for plaid!

Some people might associate the gorgeous pattern and color with big burley men, the outdoorsy type, hunting and cutting wood for winter.  Or we see it as only tablecloths and decorations for the holidays.

No more!

Plaid, right now is the color for fall.  The leaves are on the ground and nothing welcomes the cool crisp air then a bold red outfit in plaid.  We wouldn’t wear plaid in summer but it’s hot right now as a beautiful fall and winter color.

How can you not love this vibrant pattern and fiery color but scared to wear it?  Don’t be!  It’s a one style fits all and it comes in beautiful colors.  There’s sure to one that’s totally you.

How ingenious for LISTERINE® to catch the wave of this trendy phenom.  They have ingeniusly packaged their bottles in four perfectly plaid colors!  This has got to give you inspiration in the morning to wear one of the vibrant colors in a shirt, a dress or a skirt.


Below are three looks on how to achieve plaid status during this fall and winter season.


A traditional look wearing plaid is jeans, a flannel or a plaid blouse.  Easy, effortless and simple.  I paired my look with cute booties and a perfect “for fall” hat!  Tuck it in or out.  This shirt (which comes in several plaid colors) is a perfect mom uniform for battling everyday tasks.  I love that the half button up allows for easy nursing access.


Trendy pieces like a babydoll dress, or even a full plaid maxi can be closet staples or just for fun.  I like the sweet appeal this dress has without being overwhelming.  Paired with leggings and comfortable flats, this dress would be perfect with black knee high boots or black booties!


Everyone has a classic chambray shirt in their closet but if you don’t PLEASE invest in one.  Its such a versatile shirt that can be dressed up or down.  Be it summer or winter, this shirt need never be boxed up for the season!  This plaid skirt with heels and my chambray shirt says “effortless yet dressy”.  Throw on a blingy necklace and you look great in the office, at church, or on a date.


Best lipstick for this look?  RED!  Match that vivid, eye catching color with a fresh mouth.  You want to be as confident as you look and LISTERINE® has always been on trend with keeping your gums healthy and your breath fresh with it’s awesome bacteria killing ability.

Using in the morning gives me the confidence to rock a red lip everyday!  Use at night to get rid of those killer germs and keep them away.
