Every few seasons, it returns to runways with aplomb and this year every It girl at Fashion Week (90-degree New York aside) was rocking it in some way.
One particular look (below) from Milan Fashion Week captured the eyes of our Pinterest followers en masse and we can see why.
(Source: ImaxTree)This outfit is perfect street style fodder and it's easily replicated for real life. The mix of closet classics—plaid and leather and Chelsea boots—is irresistible and easy to pull off. The addition of trendy details like fringe give the ensemble an of-the-moment flair (although those details are easily set aside if you favor classic looks).
We've pulled together two sets that will help you get this look whether you're ready to invest in forever pieces or you're shopping on a budget.
