This Is The Essential Piece Of Outerwear You Need This Fall

Check it out.

share with your friends
This season, your VIP ticket to the blogosphere is undoubtedly the Prince of Wales blazer. We saw them on the runways of Alexander Wang and Stella McCartney back in spring, and subsequently forgot all about them all summer, but now that the temperature’s dropped the only piece of outerwear we’re reaching for is a traditional, ‘80s-style, menswear-inspired plaid blazer. 

Traditionally available in a warm gray color, we love the variations on this classic look: take cues from Stella’s preppy FW17 runway and opt for a pale brown shade for an equestrian finish, or keep an eye out for more contemporary checks that create a bolder pattern. Alternatively, embrace the ultimate throwback style icon: Cher Horowitz from Clueless, by pairing a bright yellow jacket with a coordinating miniskirt (and don’t forget to twin with your BFF). 

We love how an oversized check jacket looks when layered over a contemporary statement tee and a pair of high-fashion jeans. Make sure you wear your chicest accessories to strike the perfect balance between smart-casual and masculine-feminine – or rock your head-to-toe plaid pantsuit with your best sneakers for a really contrasting look.
