Trend to Try: Plaid Coats

It makes perfect sense, then, to invest in statement outerwear that you're proud to put on display for several months of blustery weather. This year's go-to version? Plaid.

There's just something about plaid. It's almost inextricably tied to that cozy, nostalgic feeling the colder months and holidays bring. It evokes thoughts of log cabins and rugged mountain men and the rolling countryside. Plus, this pattern is surprisingly versatile. Adding it to an outfit that features stripes or polka dots will make you look like a print-mixing master and there's no better pattern to pump up an outfit composed of neutrals.

We love how model Alexa Chung wore it with her preppy collar sticking just out of the coat's lapel.
