Plaid Outerwear


1.) How the celebs wore it:


2.) How it was presented at the Fall '08 RTW shows:
Plaid is not really something new but beside the classy lumberjack chemises there's also great outerwear in various colors and shapes. At the Fall 2008 RTW Shows many designers showed how interesting a coat or jacket with a plaid pattern could be.

Since I saw Alexa Chung wearing a tartan coat a few months ago I want one like hers. Unexpectedly I spotted a similar one like Alexa's at Zara when I visited my sister last time in Hannover. It was even on sale so I was very glad but when I tried it on it was ( of course) too big and strangely cut.

I think plaid coats make an awesome alternative to unicolored ones if they aren't that bright (as seen on Rihanna). Anyway I prefer a simple grey or black coat because it goes with everything and looks always good.

Now here's the turn: I saw another one which would be perfect for the transition period. I'm still thinking about getting it. Actually it's a bit too big but it has anyway a very wide cut. Still unsure and hope it will be on sale soon since this would make my decision a lot easier ☺.
Here in Germany you can't have enough coats. Last week we had snow and -8°C...!

Should I get it? And what do you think in general about plaid coats?

P.S. Thanks for your advices about getting the patent shopper or not. I did not - even if I love it and still think about it - because it was so huge that it looked already absurd. That's the con of pics: You can never say how big the bag really is in reality!

Have a nice weekend

Isa said...

hm, so viel kariert..
aber karos sind einfach eins der muster, die nicht viel brauchen um "komplett" auszusehen: karohemnd, leggins oder jeans, vielleicht noch eine pelzmütze schuhe und voilà.

danke auch für deinen kommentar, das kleid ist schockierend gucci-esque, oder?

I really like plaid coats to be honest. especially yellow plaid...although i don't know why

Becca Jane said...

I love plaid coats - although I'm agreeing that they shouldn't be in crazy bright colours. They can be pretty. I'd go for it if you want one!

Cecelia said...

I love Rihanna's!

mangopeachapple said...

I like the way Nicole Richie wears them.

Nil said...

Plaid coats totally bright up the outfit. You should get one if you want to. Coats are never too much like you said :)

Some pretty fantastic pieces shown here... I'm such a fan of the plaid brigade.

I think plaid looks great - if it's in a more tailored form like on the runways. The slouchy look that most of the celebs are wearing is a bit too hobo for me, or at least should be minimized to a scarf. You should totally get the jacket!!

Ambroisine said...

Love the plaids, you definitely should buy one !

detailsofthefabric said...

I do not like plaid. Although I had a bunch when I was in high school due to the bried grunge trend in the 90s(hello plaid shirts with hoop earings!).

That said, I don't dislike these coats (I agree that Rhianna's is the best one!), but I don't really like them either. I could see the right color combination growing on me...maybe...
