How I Wear Spring Plaid and Leather Sneakers

Just like earth tone colors have extended into spring fashion trends, so has plaid, and here is one way I wear my plaid jacket with leather sneakers in spring.  This is a boyfriend length jacket I purchased at Nordstrom Rack toward the end of the winter season, but it looks great with color or a collared sleeveless top like I am wearing here.  I wore this recently for a day of shooting footage for a video at work.

I like collared sleeveless tops to wear under jackets in warmer weather.  This top is Alfani, a Macy’s brand and the jeans are also from Macy’s by INC.  I have both in my wardrobe for a long time, but the jeans had to wait for my return after I began to lose some weight.  This outfit was perfect for a day of activity, and was very comfortable.  I also got away with it easily, because it was a cooler spring day.

I have loved my Rockport leather sneakers for a long time…very comfortable, youthful, and stylish.  In fact, the videographer, Enrique, also had on black leather sneakers.  We almost looked like we wear wearing the same shoe.  This type of plaid acts as a neutral in that it goes with any color and will work season to season. A warning about Nordstrom Rack…things go quickly, so don’t think too long.  They are easy to return in store.

Anyone else wearing plaid for spring?  Please share how you style it!  I hope all had a great Mother’s Day…enjoy today too…life is short so




  1. Great look for you, Pam. I did buy a plaid jacket but did not think to wear it with leather sneakers. They look so comfortable and fashionable at the same time. Thanks for the tip.

  2. I really like the plaid jacket with the jeans. Blazers and jeans seem to be made for each other. Congratulations on the jeans! The closer fit is very slimming! I don’t have any lightweight plaid jackets for spring and summer, but have been admiring one at Talbots. If I get it, it will be worn with my lighter color jeans.
