The plaid dress: 3 looks

Plaid dress: Brandy Melville 
As if I didn't own enough plaid pieces, I recently added this great dress to my wardrobe and I am loving it for fall layering!  Here's my take on 3 ways to style this dress: 

Look 1: For this first look, I kept it simple by pairing the dress with black thigh highs and my leather jacket. It's the school girl meets rocker chick. 

 | Leather Jacket & Thigh highs: H&M | Boots: Doc Martens |

Look 2: What's great about dresses is that you can also use them as skirts so it's a 2 in 1 deal! I wore my "WTF" graphic tee and my neon jewelled necklace for a pop of colour. Really digging the pops of neon for fall.

| T-shirt: Made at print store | Necklace: H&M |

Look 3:  A little sporty twist to the plaid dress. I wore my black stripe detail sweater and layered two of my most versatile necklaces to create a sporty chic ensemble. 

Sweater: Forever 21

All for velvet this season

| Velvet pants & Leather jacket: H&M |

|Circle Sunnies: Kensington Market, Toronto| Hat: Topshop | 

|Cut-out shoes: Capezio (Jeffrey Campbell's Melina)|

Velvet is having a comeback this season and it screams glamour! I never thought I would ever be caught wearing velvet pants but hey, I seem to be trying something new a lot lately so why not. 

3 key words you should consider when wearing velvet are: k e e p i t s i m p l e. The thing with velvet fabric is that it can easily be overdone and look a little tacky sometimes. Velvet is the perfect balance of elegance and glamour on its own and it does not need much to make a great outfit. I went with a more casual look by pairing mine with a boyfriend fit jersey tee and layered my leather jacket on top.  Oh and did I mention the shoes! I just got these last week and I have never been more obsessed with a pair of shoes. Thank you Jeffrey Campbell for these beauties!
