I did a community photoshoot recently and one of the girls wore a GORGEOUS plaid coat from Zara that she styled to perfection. It reminded me of my plaid number I had in my closet and she inspired me to take mine out more. I put this look together in the spirt of Autumn and my love of 80s music.

I got this coat back in August from the GAP when it was on sale. My style has been heading towards the classic and minimalist lately. I got this coat because I thought it’d be perfect for my new aesthetic. This has been one of the best purchases I’ve made this Fall! It’s warm and goes with literally everything in my closet! The slightly oversized silhouette is perfect as it’s classic (reminiscent of popular 80s style coats) and great for cocooning into with a scarf and boots. I think everyone should have a plaid coat in their closet! I’m listing a few of my favorite plaid coats here at various price points.

What’s more classic than a pleated skirt? I’ve had this one for about three years now which, for a piece I got at Forever 21, I”m surprised it has lasted as long as it has. I’m not sure if you can tell, but this skirt is made with a thick knitted fabric so it’s one of my go-tos in the Fall and Winter. Paired with black opaque tights, it creates a slimming silhouette.
