If you're mad for plaid ..... Suit yourself!

Tartan Plaid mini skirt

Hold on to your hair bow!

Well, my luck was in when I spotted this professional and classy double-breasted skirt suit. The profusely plaid cloth in navy blue/ dark green is super feminine and surely stands out from traditional tailoring suits with its matching mini pleated skirt. At first I wasn’t too sure about the buttons which sort of look dated and thought to reinvent the jacket by changing up the buttons for a newer look but then I decided to go beeline with it.

suit yourself

Proverbs: Suit yourself means 'do what you want'. It comes from suiting themselves with ready hemmed clothing rather than going to a tailor.

Your suit reminds me of something out of clueless, you might not take that as a compliment but there clothes are pretty special even though it is in the hype of '90's fashion :)

@ Honorteapot: I love the 90s fashion as well as clueless! I was in High School in the 90s! I can totally relate, so I take it a compliment! :)
