I used to associate plaid with strictly “fall fashion” but times have changed as I’ve been wearing plaid all throughout this winter. This may have something to do with the mild winter we’ve had so far as most of my plaid items don’t exactly fall in the “warm” category but a recent coat purchase has changed this for me. For those that are familiar with Shoedazzle, their end of season blow out sales can have some pretty insane deals. This year’s winter blow out resulted in me obtaining this plaid coat and I have been wearing it non-stop since it’s come in the mail. It is surprisingly warm considering the material it’s made of and the open neck aspect.
My favorite way to wear this has been with bootcut jeans ( you can get mine here) and heeled booties. There’s a very 70’s vibe with this outfit ( the bootcut jeans and heeled booties part) that I’ve been loving. It’s been all about the 90’s recently so I’ve enjoyed mixing it up with a different decade’s inspiration. My shoes are an Oxford inspired cognac booties that I raved about in my December Favorites and 2 months later am still obsessing about.
Many places have great plaid coats on sale right now since the winter season is coming to an end so now is a great time to buy outerwear. Some of my favorite finds for plaid coats have been this black and white version from Target (super affordable and on sale right now), this neutral toned version from Nordstrom, this Madden Girl version that is almost identical to mine (plus a hood) and my favorite one – a Jessica Simpson dark plaid wool version.
