While exiting a hair salon in West Hollywood, Lea Michele dressed up a blue plaid button-down blouse and black leggings with black high-heeled over-the-knee boots. She then completed her daytime style with aviator sunglasses and a black crossbody bag. To mimic Lea's latest look, just match any of your plaid shirts with over-the-knee boots for a casual-cum-dressy vibe. For an office-appropriate version, wear your plaid shirt with dressier pants, and for a nighttime feel, swap the regular leggings for a faux-leather pair.
After enjoying a leisurely breakfast in LA, Jessica Alba cozied up in a studded leather Simone jacket, fur vest, and hooded plaid shirt to create a weekend-perfect look we can't wait to mimic. Jessica styled her bundled toppers with sheen coated leggings, python Rebecca Minkoff ankle boots ($245, originally $350), and a leather Bulgari tote for additional texture. Re-create this cozy layered look by pairing her exact boots with a plaid shirt, fur vest, and black motorcycle jacket, then slip on a pair of coated leather leggings for the finishing touch.
Taylor Swift was all smiles in a blue plaid button-down, knee-patch Ralph Lauren riding pants ($290), and her staple Mark Cross satchel ($2,350) while leaving her hotel in London. The blond beauty has always been privy to smart styles, but recently perfectly preppy ensembles, like this colorblocking number complete with a strand of pearls, have become her style go-to. Taylor completed her school-girl-gone-cool look with blue leather oxfords, a no-fuss updo, and au naturel makeup. Nail her well-groomed London look by pairing her exact pants and bag with a blue plaid button-down and matching brogues for a lunch date with friends.
Whether bringing a little country style into the city or planning a cozy weekend in the woods, belted cardigans, plaid menswear shirts, and equestrian jackets are the perfect way to do casual this fall. Understated extras like Burberry's check tote and Chloé's knee-high boots look right with this laid-back look.
