Neat! I like how instead of a neutral outfit and bright shoe, you did bright outfit with neutral shoe.

Very interesting outfit! Something I wouldn't have the nerve to try, but it looks so right!

I love that you chose an outfit that you now say inspired you and you will get a lot of mileage out of.... A huge benefit to this challenge,....

It's like Pee-Wee Herman goes punk. Or was it Urkel. Love it anyways. Now I wish I had plaid pants.

I love that on you!

You are so much braver than I am. But that is not news... This pushes past my comfort zone when it comes to pattern-mixing, which is not to say you shouldn't do it.

Thanks for the comments ladies. If you can think of ways to improve this look, let me know! (Smaller stripes, navy stripes, dark shoes, more fitted pants?)
I sized up on these pants, I purposely wanted baggy pants, but am now thinking a smaller size might have been better. Oh well. They are super comfortable!

Love this on you, Denise! The pants are sensational. And I would never have thought to pair them with stripes, but wow, it works!

I think it is a super outfit, Denise. Plaid trousers are so much fun, aren't they? You did make this copycat your own!

Love the plaid and stripes combo! I really want some plaid pants.

I do love those plaid pants.

I love this too and wouldn't change a thing. Smaller stripes just wouldn't be as fun. You might see what black and white stripes look like with this for something different and slightly more conservative. Have you tried a floral with the plaid pants yet?

Denise I know we all agree we kind over use this word, but this look IS 'cool'. I love the pattern mix and now I want a pair of plaid pants... they are officially on my list for next Autumn. Love the clutch and the neutral booties. Brilliant!

I love your version Denise! Glad you sized up on the pants; don't second guess yourself.

Yours is so much better! I feel the punk spirit washing off this photo. The baggy size of the pants is *perfect*. It would look too Hot Topic 2002 with tight pants.
Aida replied 7 years ago
Oh Denise, I looooove your version! The inspiration is a bit more preppy feeling, yours feels more punk rock. YES! I think the pants are perfect, though I don't mind tighter plaid pants (mine are tighter). That JACKET is killing me though, wow it's so very awesome. And now I want to copy your look!

Great look, and I really like how you've taken inspiration from that photo and transformed it to another colour palette!

Neat! You look like a cool punk rock Debbie Harry! Fearless pattern mixing! Love those red plaid pants!
Marley replied 7 years ago
OK - I just got to try to find some clothing items in my closet to copy this look. I LOVE your interpretation of it Denise! Is the jacket camo? So cool!

I love this "urban grunge" look. I like both the pattern and style of the pants. They work really well with the striped shirt, both in cut & color. I know that I am now gushing, but that jacket is awesome too. I think the blogger's look was "soft" and i like how you made your look edgier (through the jacket and unique color combo). Your style is inspirational -- especially how you pair the unexpected.

Urban chic! I admire how you put this together so well. What a fabulous outfit this is on you! I think the size of the pants looks quite right.
Lisa replied 7 years ago
I think this is the most clever pattern mix I've seen yet. I just adore the plaid trousers and the stripes really tie in the look because the color coordinates so well. Isn't it amazing how versatile striped tops are?
JulieJohn replied 7 years ago
Bold and it works great! You took the look and made it yours so nicely. Ro-coco + copycat = CocoLion!

Ah man, she is wearing those Valentino pumps....
I think your interpretation is way cooler, by the way.

I find that the inspiration photo looks like she got dressed in the dark while your interpretation looks inspired and au courant.
