Everybody, man or woman, should at least own ONE plaid shirt. It's perfect for fall, and you can always throw a puffer vest over when colder weather strikes. I particularly love this red and black plaid dress from Cotton On because it's a versatile piece. You can wear it as a dress (the length is perfect!), knot it, or wear over skinny jeans or leggings. Considering Fall is a season of transition, for me in particular, I find myself in transition of covering my shoulders and not yet my feet! Temperatures in Texas are still reaching the 90s!! Which is why I think this outfit is perfect to address the in-between temperatures :)

I chose this plaid piece as a "throw-on" over my Brooklyn NYC muscle tee and soft shorts from Apricot Lane. I wanted to create a casual look with feminine vibes while mixing up prints with this leopard Coach cross-body bag. It seems like a mouthful of an outfit, but I truly enjoy dressing up a simple tee by keeping the bottom half of the outfit with feminine pieces (soft shorts, classic 3 inch heel).
