When I think of fall I also think about prints such as gingham, velvet, corduroy and of course, plaid! This is the time of year when plaid really has a moment to stand out and shine. All the fashion catalogues and store windows incorporate plaid in some capacity during this time of year. I like to think of it as the unofficial announcement that the season has changed and fall is in full swing.
Store windows are telling us to prepare for cooler temperatures while featuring their latest plaid designs. What I absolutely love about this trend is that almost every brand uses plaid in their clothing line. In other words, you can invest in a fabulous staple piece that will stand the test of time or you can buy a few different styles and rock one each week. Whether you are shopping at H&M, Nordstrom, J.Crew or Bloomingdales, you will have plenty of plaid options that won’t break the bank.
I recently purchased this plaid coat from Nordstrom and I am in love with it! I have received so many compliments and believe it or not, people think it’s a very expensive coat. Well, it’s not! It’s made by Leith and under $140 but is great quality. Whether you are looking for a new fall coat, statement coat or just something plaid, this might just be the perfect purchase. Rest assured you will turn heads while wearing this perfectly plaid purchase.
Oh and let’s not forget about this amazing carryall tote from Martha Stewart. It’s the perfect carry-all tote, great for road trips, travel or even the farmers market. We all know that nobody does it better than Martha Stewart when it comes to home goods so the quality of this bag is very sturdy and will last you for many years.
