Great timing: I am bored with my summer clothes, and getting desperate to wear something new/different – and along comes Chadwick’s of Boston, kindly offering me a selection from their Fall collection. Chadwick’s of Boston has a terrific variety of pieces for women of all ages and sizes: Tall, Petites and Plus sizes all pay the same affordable price, too.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

This Chadwick’s of Boston wool plaid skirt is nicely made and finished, the wool is soft and comfortable, and I love, love the vertical fringe detail. The muted colors make it perfect to wear with solid sweaters and tights, or mix up a bit like I’ve done here. Versatile, comfortable and modern – that’s what I like about this skirt and many other pieces I’ve seen at the Chadwick’s of Boston site (easy ordering too). Their target audience is basically us over-40 women who may not dress for corporate life, but who are active and style-conscious.

Here’s a look at the soft wool fabric, and side fringe. Nice.



The plaids are matched perfectly, a sign of great construction. Hidden back zipper.


I encourage you to give the revamped Chadwick’s of Boston a try. The quality and value are superb. Here are some other terrific pieces I have my eyes on:


Wool fit and flare blazer – love the shape of this one.



Stripe cardigan with exceptional design front and back.

  2. A very versatile great skirt. it is functional yet aesthetic. Love to have one in my wardrobe!

  3. Great to see but we are heading into summer here 🙂 so cooler clothes for me. Fingers crossed you are all ok after the hurricane/cyclone you will have hitting your state soon. On TV saying everything is shut down. Sam the Aussie

  4. Yes, the fringe is so fun! What a great detail. And I love this with your men’s shirt with the cool stitchery. Great combo.

  5. That flared blazer is to die for cute!! And yes…. we are north of you in Virginia and the weather is fabulously cool this week.

  6. Thanks for sharing about Chadwicks, as I hadn’t heard of them before and love learning about new-to-me places :). I think it’s so awesome when companies cater to different heights&sizes, and wish more would! I love the plaid skirt your chose; the fringe is such a great trendy touch.


  7. Our customers love a bit of tartan, when I find vintage kilts they fly off the rails.
    You look great in your modern interpretation. You’re right, the pattern matching is brilliant, you don’t find that is many contemporary clothing ranges. x

  8. This looks like such a great quality piece. Plaid is always in style for fall. I’ve been picking up loads of great plaid skirts while thrifting lately, from Scotland and England. They truly do stand the test of time.

    I like how you’ve mixed up the classic style of the plaid with the modern shirt, boho necklace and booties. It is a great eclectic mix that shows that plaid is anything but boring.


  9. Fabulous pattern mix and I like the popped collar and booties with this look! The plaid skirt looks amazing with its colors and side fringe. I had forgotten about Chadwick’s and am now encouraged to give them another look.

  10. I love this skirt! I have always liked Chadwick’s coats and jackets. I have a few that have lasted for years and I still love them! Peace! Cheryl

  11. That skirt is so lovely – the fringes make it more so!!!
