Fall Trends to Try: Plaid Pumps Now & Later
Happy Friday, friends! Cyndi and I are teaming up again to style a fall trend for now and later, and this week we’re both styling plaid.
Plaid is a fall classic, yes, but it’s also being touted as one of the top trends this season. Think less school-uniform and more working-woman with tailored silhouettes and polished touches.
It is with some fear and trepidation that I hit Publish on this post, because I know I’m going to get some hate mail for it. 😂
Why, you may wonder? Well, just about everything I’m wearing is selling out.
But never fear! Both of these outfits can easily be recreated with similar pieces, so I’ve found some other options for everything that is low inventory.
I picked up these plaid pumps during the #NSale, and I love how they dress up a pair of jeans.
With this blend of autumnal colors, they seem to go with just about everything I put on these days. I’ve been surprised by how versatile a print can be.
Unfortunately the plaid is almost gone, but these shoes are very comfortable and have a gorgeous shape. If you’re in need of a classic pair of pumps, take a look at the other color options — there are some good ones!

This top comes in a bunch of solids, as well as snake and leopard prints. As luck may have it, it’s almost sold out in the cognac, but it’s still available in most other options. For size reference, I’m wearing the small.
These jeans are my trusty Rag & Bone Cate skinnies, and I love the wash on them as well as the raw hem.
There are a few sizes left at Bloomies, or you can find a very similar pair on sale at Nordstrom. They run TTS, or size down if in between. I take a 28 in these.

I actually shot this look back in July, but I never posted the entire outfit because everything sold out so fast.
I linked a bunch of other options below, and of course you don’t have to wear off-white either. Any shade of rust, burgundy, taupe, camel, or beige looks great with these pumps.
I love the chewed hem on these Frame skinnies. I know they’re not for everyone, but I think they add a fun texture to the look and toughen it up a bit.
I think it’s fun to mix chunky knits with pumps for going out to dinner or for a get together with girlfriends, but you could totally do this look with flats — plaid loafers or mules would be super cute with this outfit too.
