I feel like plaid is having a moment this year; all plaids from buffalo plaid to this kind of holiday plaid my pants are. Actually it probably has a moment every year around this time, but it always feels new again. I saw these pants when I was at the Old Navy winter preview this past August. The minute they were online I ordered them, which was good because I think this particular plaid is sold out. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’ve got many holiday plans for these pants. I mean let’s discuss the options here: chambray (duh.), sequined top, cozy sweater, cropped sweater with button down underneath, graphic tee + blazer. Who knew plaid pants had so many options? (*I did. I’m just going to toot my own horn on that one. That was definitely a brag.)

Also, let’s talk plaid and stripes. I feel like they are the odd couple of pattern mixing. They shouldn’t work together but they do so well. Thoughts on mixing plaid with prints? Yay or cray?

  1. This outfit is so on point. I can't decide which piece I like better. All of them?

  2. I was just looking at these pants on their website earlier this week. I've never worn that bold of a pant, but I absolutely love them. I love how you mixed prints and that cape is fabulous!

  3. I can't get enough plaid! So festive and pretty. Also– the cape?! You're ridiculously on-trend, as always. 🙂

    Always, Anita

  4. I've seen plaid pants floating around on the internet and I'll admit they intimidated me a bit but these look so great! I'm going to be on the hunt for them now because they really do make for a chic, effortless holiday look!

  5. Between the plaid and the cape, this is the perfect fall outfit. I never would have put stripes with plaid but it works SO WELL. I've been looking at plaid pants all season and I think it's time time to finally cave and buy some.


  6. Old Navy has been coming out with some really cute stuff lately. Totally buying those pants.

  7. I know this is your second post with the SJP shoes, but I adore them. They are almost neon bright in your photos and really pop with whatever you wear them with!

  8. This cape is perfection and I love how you incorporated some color into the look!

  9. Weather, my friend. It is CRAZY in Texas! We went from high 60s to low 30s in a matter of days! I'm crossing my fingers for those high 60s again next week 🙂

  10. As I write this, I am wearing the black and white plaid Pixie pants…chic, comfortable, and safe. I saw the pair you're wearing in store and was 100% unsure of them, but you've shown that they can look amazing and stylish. I feel like I should buy them right now, but I just don't know if I could pull them off like you could!

    P.S. The cape. My heart. Yes.

  11. The tomato red heels are fab.u.lous!!!! I can't believe those pants are old navy – I can see why they sold out so fast!! You made plaid look so chic!

  12. One can but hope! [Congrats on your first two weeks and on getting th online store up and running – following your story post-Bloom has given me so much strength these past few months. Thank you]

  13. Kendi first of all you look gorgeous. In love with this entire look. Love the combination of these two prints. I am also obsessed with plaid this season. Also what a fabulous cape. Amazing look!
