Channeling My Inner Wednesday Addams

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of tartan. But after seeing the cleaner, more muted ways some of the labels approached the trend on the Fall 2016 runways, I gave in. Primarily because I found a dress that was reminiscent of my favourite childhood character, Wednesday Addams. (And yes, I did dress up as her for Halloween this year.)

This little plaid dress can easily be seen as a conservative pick with its white collar and lack of silhouette. But I added my own twist and went for a laid-back yet well put together look with patent leather loafers and a faux croc-embossed city bag. It’s the perfect look for work and can easily be dressed up with a pair of heels and statement clutch for, say, a dinner date.
