Ditch your safe black coat this season for an attention-grabbing topper, like these mad-for-plaid options:
Go a little retro English mod with this double-breasted Harbor Your Style Coat from Jack by BB Dakota. The red, navy and white plaid tweed is balanced out by solid navy panels, which create a great slimming effect! ($84.99 at ModCloth)
Pops of neon in the tartan weave and the pink interior of the Blazing Bright Coat from Plenty by Tracy Reese offer a girlie twist on the traditional Scottish pattern. Plus, the classic, Betty Draper-esque cut of this wool piece equals years and years of wear ($278 at Anthropologie).
The Green with Envy Plus Size Coat does fall trend double duty. With its cape style and graphic plaid print, this outerwear piece hits all the season's major style points. It's trimmed in black faux-leather piping and is available in 1X-3X sizes ($240 at Macy's).
If you're ready to invest in the plaid fad, then Vivienne Westwood's your gal. The mohair topper from her Red Label line is made of baize cloth a.k.a felt, comes in a stand-out orange tartan and features an oversized lapel collar and belt ($1,234 at Yoox).
