Positively Posh in Plaid: Two Ways to Style Windowpane Plaid


Buffalo, Glen, Tattarsall, Tartan, Pin Check, Shepherd's Check, Gingham, Windowpane...These are just a few of the plaid variations going on in the world my friends! In full disclosure, I had not taken the time to research the different plaids and their origins.  Plaid was always just plaid to me, save for the gingham and buffalo plaids that have taken the fashion world by storm! Admittedly, I find it fascinating to know that Glen plaid originated from Scotland, but I have to stop there. There's far too much laundry to continue. So for today, I'm camping on the new to me variation of plaid - the windowpane! Join me for two similar in color, but vastly different in "feel" styles in this classic and effortlessly chic WINDOWPANE jacket. AND look for a discount code for YOU!






*This jacket was provided to me by Five Girls Fashion. As always, all opinions are entirely my own!

Picture me raiding my own closet...pulling out all the possibilities to pair with this jacket. I had to stop myself because I was making a mess!  I reached for my blue denim (featured in this post), my black denim, dresses, body suits and even some leggings. Once again this proved that ONE classic, versatile pieces brings an explosion of options!

This loose fitting jacket is fairly lightweight, has slits on the sides and pockets!  I love the length and the roomy feel, as well as the sleeves that roll. I'm wearing a small and it's perfectly comfortable in the shoulders.  Next time I'm going to style this with a color popping dress - red for Christmas or purple for NYE? I don't know...where ever the wind takes me my friends. I live in Florida now so the next time I wear this jacket it may even be with shorts!

The Casual Look

Leggings are old from The Limited, Adidas were picked up at Famous Footwear and Shades are from Costco.

Jewelry is by Premier Designs from my Jewelry gal days.


I wore this look to our homeschool community group and was sublimely comfortable without sacrificing swagger - ha! Suffice it to say, your clothes can absolutely effect your mood!!

  13. I never met a plaid I didn't like. That windowpnane long jacket is fabulous and so versatile. I love the nighttime dressier look. The lace-front top and your bracelet stack is made for that jacket. I cannot wait to see it with a colorful dress, next!!
