Plaid. It reminds me of Catholic schoolgirl uniforms and Scottish kilts.
But here, a cute tartan jacket with an origami shape is super modern. These tartan jackets are the granddaughters of the wool windowpane blazers of the 90’s. Thankfully they are lighter, more flattering and frankly, far more chic than their predecessors.
I love them paired with skinny jeans and pumps like Nordstrom shows it here. But it would be a great holiday outfit with black satin pants. Or schoolgirl meets biker chick with a fitted leather skirt — leather is all the rage this fall!
It’s also on the very affordable end of the spectrum too… always a bonus!
