Hello friend! Somehow the last day of Skirtmas is already upon us. I’ve had a great time showing you 12 new skirts and how to style them. I thought I’d finish off the series with a favorite pattern mix of mine: gingham and plaid. To do so I am featuring a lovely Modcloth plaid pencil skirt.

Modcloth Plaid Pencil Skirt Review

I adore Modcloth for their vintage vibe and feminine styles. I also find it so endearing that they give their items of clothing fun names. For example the skirt I am wearing is actually called the “Care to Converse?” pencil skirt. So cute!

When I first saw this skirt, I was immediately drawn to its mid-calf length and vintage style. Of course, it didn’t hurt that it was plaid. We all know how much I love a plaid. {If you love plaid too, be sure to see this plaid skirt post as well as this plaid and lace post.}

The fit of the skirt is divine. It is high-waisted and a true pencil skirt. However, because of the pleats on the sides and back hem, it is quite easy to walk.

It is a thin to medium heft polyester blend. It does not wrinkle easily. I took my usual Modcloth size small (for a point of reference, I am often XS in other brands like J Crew).

Modcloth Plaid Pencil Skirt Outfit

Similar to Skirtmas day 7, I wanted to pattern mix with this skirt. I was itching to try another plaid on plaid look and I knew the Modcloth plaid pencil skirt would be perfect for it. Therefore I threw on my J Crew gingham button-down and was thrilled with the results.

This is a perfectly harmonious pattern mix because of the blue that is in both pieces of clothing. You can read more about it in my pattern mixing 101 post.

To accessorize this outfit, I chose to keep it simple. Because there is a color and print in both pieces of clothing, I kept my shoes and purse neutral.

I opted for a favorite pair of booties and a classic tote bag.

For my jewelry I chose red beaded tassel earrings.

As an avid pattern mixer, I love how the gingham shirt paired with the Modcloth plaid pencil skirt. It was the perfect way to end my 12 Days of Skirtmas. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Happy holidays to you friends!
