Continuing Fall Coat Week with a more in depth look at plaid coats. The nature of the plaid pattern alone presents such versatility to any outfit, making it one of the most fun patterns to style. With plaid outerwear in particular, depending on the silhouette of the coat, and the color and scale of the plaid, each piece can read anywhere from subtle, to feminine, to more masculine. I’ve always loved an unexpected plaid at an unexpected time, and this season more than ever, I am seeing so many interesting choices to choose from. See below for ten examples that range from punk to prep, and lumberjack to ladylike. From cropped, to mid, to long lengths, and with toggle, belt, or button closures, there are plaid coats available this season for every occasion! See some of my past favorite plaid looks here, here and here!

one  //  Love the warm pops and punk vibe this plaid overcoat exudes.

two  //  The deeper tones and larger pattern would normally put this plaid coat in the dressed up category, but the pink pop pulls it back to a more fun and wearable place.

three  //  A subtle glen plaid and a long, double-breasted silhouette give this coat a permanent position in any closet. And, it’s under $140!

four  //  The oversized silhouette along with quilted fill and a white grounded plaid make this coat a peak performer for high winter.

five  //  A hooded and toggled number with a pink and white plaid. Too darling.

six  //  A classic buffalo check option with drop shoulders to dress down for those cool and casual nights out.

seven  //  Black and dark grey together rarely misses the mark, especially in a perfect pattern and car coat silhouette.

eight  //  This boxy black watch plaid coat with motorcycle-inspired zippers is beautiful and badass at the same time!

nine  //  A retro tan and orange number to give you that 70s mod vibe. Perfect with a midi and tights.

ten  //  Adore the colors and plaid pattern in this long coat so much that I just bought it myself!. Amazing back to black or blue denim and an easy solid sweater.

I discovered the brand Sézane a few years ago and instantly fell in love. The fabulously French label creates amazing and original designs focusing on fabric, quality, and fit, and, until now, had delivered their offering in the United States entirely online. I’m ecstatic to announce that the brand is opening their first store outside of Paris, deemed L’Appartement New York, right here in the heart of Manhattan. I will be partnering with the brand in a much bigger way in the months ahead, including hosting an opening party at their newest store location this October!

As this is coat week on the site, I must begin with a round up of my favorite outerwear pieces from their Fall collection.

One  //  Absolutely adore this coat that comes in both a feminine pink and the perfect grey (I have been eyeing the grey so don’t be surprised if you see it pop up on the blog soon). It is the quintessential transitional piece.

Two  //  This is the coat I am wearing in my outfit post today – it is a great mix of laid-back-cool and tailored. It’s oh-so-versatile and just as easily dressed up as it is dressed down.

Three  //  Leopard is practically a neutral color today, and this coat fits the bill being the perfect shape.

Four  //  As mentioned yesterday here, I am never one to shy away from color. This new mustard piece for Fall is everything and goes so well with all things 70s including flared denim, fem blouses, and retro booties (like these).

Outside of these gorgeous coats, Sézane also carries so many amazing pieces including shoes (I own several pairs of these as seen here and here), denim (just launched this year), and their newest timeless edit of basics called ‘la liste’ (this piece has to be my favorite). A word to the wise, their pieces sell out quickly (like, lightning fast) so don’t hesitate if you see something you love!


To celebrate the start of the Fall season, over the next three weeks, I will be focusing the site on three product categories – Fall coats, boots, and denim! Each week, I will be honing in on each category at a time, delving into my favorite silhouettes, fabrics, colors, and brands. Every day, I will showcase a brand new outfit post supporting a theme from the category of the week, as well as a publish a corresponding editorial write-up over on Edit & Etc. to highlight my favorite picks. During this Fall kick-off, my travels will be taking me from NYC, over to London, out to the Cotswolds, back to NYC, and up through New England with stops in Vermont and New Hampshire! There is a lot of ground to cover – both geographically and editorially!

So without further ado, this post kicks off the Fall Series with a week-long posting cadence dedicated to outerwear! And to nobody’s surprise, I’m starting with an edit that focuses on colorful fall coats. As most everyone knows, I love color in my wardrobe, and never shy away from it, especially in the cooler seasons. The brighter the coat, the better (as seen herehere, and here)! When it comes to colorful outerwear, all silhouettes can shine bright – from a peacoat to a puffer, and a trench to a toggle! See below for a color wheel round up featuring sixteen of my favorite bold fall coats of this season.
