WIW: Plaid X 4

This is not very dressy but inspired by Angie's double plaid. The plaid pants are a little dark to see so I added the last photo, trying to show all the plaids.
The shirt is cotton but not flannel, the scarf has mixed 2 plaids with green. Too much?

    Four plaids for the win! I really like this.

  • Mirjana replied 3 years ago

    For me not too much, you wear it with style ,  suits you absolutely. I like it.

  • kkards replied 3 years ago

    ok,  this a little too maximal for me, but i love the top half (red is totally your color) and i'd love this with white  jeans!

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you for your comments and help. Kkards, the top half with white jeans is a good idea. I could also do it with blue jeans.

  • Angie replied 3 years ago

    Plaid Cubed.

    You whacked it out of the ballpark, Ruth. WOW. 

    KILLER to the Power of KILLER

    A little too much to my eyes.

    The shirt, bag and shoes look great on you.

  • Meredith replied 3 years ago

    That is impressive and festive! Sometimes I think pattern mixing looks unintentional in a less than desirable way, but this is clearly intentional and fun.

  • karen13 replied 3 years ago

    Super fun.

  • Barbara Diane replied 3 years ago

    Outstanding! Perfectly done. I want your knack for this.

  • Katerina replied 3 years ago

    I also like the top half a lot, but would rather choose another pair of pants. The idea of white jeans is very good.

    I love the plaid pants!you ve got some funky trousers in your wardrobe.How about trying them with some plain navy tops and the plaid scarf?keep the shoes and handbag the same.Go team plaid!

  • Dianna replied 3 years ago

    Too much of a good thing can be wonderful! I need to get me some plaid trews.

  • bonnie replied 3 years ago

    What a wonderful collection of plaids. It looks good together.

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but that is good to know.
    Cardiff girl, I do mostly wear these plaid pants with navy tops but have not yet tried adding this plaid scarf. Good idea.
    Meredith, I know what you mean. I think having more than two plaid pieces in an outfit may look more intentional unless the two pieces are carefully chosen. The pants and shirt seem to look like a sad accident when together by themselves.
    Approprio, I like your thinking. Angie, thank you so much for the big confidence boast to try new combinations .
    MsMary, a *plonk*! I am thrilled!
    Thank you all for your comments. I learn so much from you.

    Very outfit

  • Joyce B replied 3 years ago

    I think it is a festive and fab outfit. It works beautifully for the holiday season. For non-holiday, I would break it up a little bit but YMMV.

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Thank you all for your comments. As Joyce says, I may be able to get away with all this plaid at holiday time but not normal times

  • Mary Beth (formerly LBD) replied 3 years ago

    Not too much!  You look festive and fun!

  • MsGreer replied 3 years ago

    very festive! “tiss the season”
    n looks comfy

  • Suz replied 3 years ago

    Wow, this is so much fun, Joy! Gorgeous on you. The rich reds feel so festive and this shows such a sense of confidence and verve. 

  • FashIntern replied 3 years ago

    I love the way this all fits together. You’ve got pattern mixing to last all year, but the plaid might seem a ... strange in a few months ;) . Is that one of your new scarves?

  • Joy replied 3 years ago

    Many Thanks to all who took time to look and comment. I find it so helpful. Fashiontern, that is one of my new scarves and feels just right for this time of year. It is best for cold weather. It has two plaids plus a plain bright green section.
