I was taken with this interesting combination at Zara recently. Matching casual lumberjack plaid with dressy sequins is so extreme that I think it works. It’s certainly one way to dress down a sequin skirt or camisole! 

The vibe reminds me a little of my weekend uniform in the ’90s when I wore Levi’s 501s, a black lace camisole, a grungy red plaid shirt, a black belt and flat black biker boots. The juxtaposition of the sequins with the plaid shirt here takes things a little further — and I like it more than my ’90s lace version. 

I’m not into wearing lumberjack plaid shirts anymore, but I am a yay vote for the look. I like all the outfits shown below, the casual flat booties being the cool cherry on top. My version would be to skip the plaid and wear a denim shirt tucked into the sequin skirt with the flat booties. Tame in comparison, but a pretty extreme juxtaposition nonetheless. What’s your verdict?
