Had it been a bit colder I would’ve added a nice plaid scarf to top off the look; and maybe a beanie. All joking aside, this look was inspired by this tartan ruffle shirt  I picked up during our Foxwoods sip & shop event a couple of weekends ago.

In case you haven’t noticed by my Instagram posts, I love plaids, tartans, leopards and tweeds. These are my favorite patterns of all time and during the fall and winter season I use them to the fullest. I try to incorporate a bit of any of them in my daily outfits. Mixing and layering them together is fun and fabulous not to mention a great way to amp up your look!

When mixing these patterns look for the common denominator. In this case I focused on the brown and red tones which made it easy for me to add the leopard pumps. Simple black cargo leggings tied the whole look together.
