Searching for the Perfect Plaid Shirt, Inspired by Vogue Paris’ Capucine Safyurtlu

As you know, the Vogue Paris team are a seriously fashionable bunch, and my latest style pin-up is Fashion and Market Editor, Capucine Safyurtlu. Recently I received images from Sergio Rossi’s Spring/Summer 2014 presentation at Milan Fashion Week, and, instead of focusing on the amazing colour-block booties, I found myself distracted by Capucine’s laid-back outfit. Rather than an attention-grabbing runway look, Capucine went for a casual plaid shirt, relaxed boyfriend jeans and classic black pumps. It’s simple but oh so effective!

Annoyingly it’s also one of those outfits that manages to look much more appealing on a Vogue Paris staffer than your average joe. But if you’re feeling inspired by Capucine’s style (and honestly, why wouldn’t you be?) I’ve tracked down the very best plaid shirts on offer this season. Take a look…

Plaid Shirt Fall 2013SHOP: 1. R13 flannel shirt | 2. Topshop plaid shirt | 3. Maje cotton shirt | 4. MICHAEL Michael Kors jeans | 5. Equipment silk shirt | 6. River Island colour block shirt

The R13 pinky red shirt is my personal favourite, but I’m also a big fan of the contrast-sleeve design from River Island. Following Capucine’s lead I’ll obviously be pairing plaid with low-key denim and heeled pumps, this fall. And to take the look into the evening I’ll add statement jewellery and red lipstick.

Are you a fan of Capucine Safyurtlu’s style? Will you be wearing plaid this Autumn/Winter? Which shirt is your favourite?

    I always fancy trying plaid after seeing LC rock a shirt and skinny jeans but I just look like a lost lumber jack- guess it’s a look that only works for some. Capucine looks great though!
