A few weeks ago Inge and I were shopping together when we stumbled across a fun outfit combination. Inge fell in love with the Shadow Plaid Barely Boot Editor Pant from Express, and had to try them on. You can’t see the subtle navy and dark red plaid all that clearly in the photo, but if you click on the pants and magnify them, you’ll see the pattern in more detail. 

As Inge tried on the pants she happened to be wearing Ann Taylor’s Oversized Shirt in white, untucked under the Loft’s Windowpane Sweater, with a pair of rolled straight leg jeans. She emerged from the dressing room to ask what I thought of the pants and I was bowled over by the whole ensemble. “Matchy-matchy fabness!” I remember exclaiming. And Inge loved it too.

The plaid on the pants were a great match with the squares of the window pane sweater, and everything was in the same colour palette.

Inge had to order a longer inseam, but she got the pants. The day they arrived Inge wore the ensemble out to dinner. She finished off the look with Seychelles Solitude black booties, and a rich cognac cheetah clutch. A great outfit that came together coincidentally. Brilliant.
