Windowpane check is one of my favorite patterns – it’s really just stripes masquerading as a plaid! It looks good in any color combination, and can be made appropriate for any occasion.
This midi skirt is a great foundation for an outfit to wear to the office (click the image to shop any part of the look). The navy and red give it a classic look, while the large scale of the check gives it a little drama.
A plain navy top and bag would defeat the purpose of such a great skirt, so instead I styled it with a blouse with unusual tailoring, and the anjelica tote, which is equally dramatic with its bold windowpane check in gold stitching.
Pearl jewelry a bit different than the usual (black and gold pearls rather than the more common variety) finishes off the look with a bit of class and a lot of style. Who knew preppy could be so edgy?
