Taking Notes from Tommy Hilfiger's Fall 2011 Campaign

Tommy Hilfiger is an all American brand created by designer Thomas Jacob Hilfiger. Tommy Hilfiger is known for it's American preppyness...bold American preppyness. His fall 2011 collection is no different: plaids, button downs, sweaters...I must say I really love the fall campaign this year: Home with the Hilfigers. Lots of layers, mixing of prints, preppy with an attitude. Something attainable and do-able. There was one ad campaign that totally caught my attention which was the one with the two stylish kids and I guess who suppose to be there young stylish mom. Personally the little girl's style caught my attention...layers and mixed prints! What more could you want in a fall outfit!



The reason I truly love this was because this look is so do-able with affordable clothing and doing your own twist to it. Most of us might even have the essentials in our closets like a long v-neck sweater, printed button down, and dark tights.



Tommy Hilfiger 2011



1. V-Neck Sweater: Most of us have the esstential winter sweaters like v-necks. Longer v-neck sweaters like the Dorothy Perkin's Black Sparkle V-Neck Jumper ($34). You want to pick a v-neck sweater that is long enough to go over a plaid mini but not long enough to complete cover the skirt. You want just enough to peek from underneath it.

2. Printed Button Down Top: Many of us have printed button downs in our closest (especially us working gals): florals, stripes, plaid...etc. Don't be afraid to mix up prints with the plaid skirt or to even go plaid on plaid, the sweater helps break up the prints.

3. Plaid Skirt: You'll need a plaid mini skirt, like the Free People Mohair Plaid Mini ($98), to fully pull off the look. The skirt needs to be short enough to hide under the sweater but long enough to peak out. Pick a mini skirt that is fitted and doesn't flare out to much.

4. Tights: Stick with darker color tights or stricly black. If your bold and dare to go plaid go with a dark plaid tight. I would stay away from plaid tights if you are doing a plaid top as well.

5. Boots: To take a grown female twist to this look try a dark mid-calf boot with a low heel like the Urban Outfitters Distressed Suede Boot ($69). This will give a work appropriate look and won't make you look to much like a school girl.

Here's how I pulled off my Tommy Hilfiger look:



Shirt: Abercrombie and Finch (SUPER OLD SHIRT...I think I had it since High School yikes)
Skirt: American Eagle
Sweater: H&M
Tights: H&M
Boots: Urban Outfitters
