Currently Coveting // Checks, mate!
Currently Coveting is where I share what items I've been eyeing and buying. I also love a good deal and take prices into consideration.
Plaid has come and gone (and come and gone and come again), but I've never stopped loving it. There's something gloriously old-school and buttoned-up about plaid, so when paired with an updated cut, it's about as chic as you can get. Every fall wardrobe should have at least a few checked necessities. Just be sure to style this distinct and loud print with solid colors. A plaid shirt also looks terrific with a fur vest.
Below are my top picks, a couple of which may or may not be in shopping baskets already...
Zara Black Checked Jumpsuit ($99.90). This is a classic "me" piece in that I'm loving it but am sure most people would see this and scratch their heads. But just think if it were styled right: Rolled-up sleeves, black patent pumps, a different belt higher on the waist, and sparkling dangly earrings...I will probably buy this.
Lovers + Friends "Get Down" Blouse ($125). I LOVE this. Old school plaid—in the stodgiest color combination—made sexy. I love wearing a daring plunge now and again so this top marries two loves of mine.
Classiques Entier Bias Cut Plaid Wool Blend Skirt ($258). Does it get any more classically feminine than this? It's thick and rich and strikes me as something Charlotte from Sex and the City would wear.
AEO Plaid Moto Jacket ($119.95). I'm not normally an American Eagle Outfitters girl (okay, so I never normally even set foot inside), but this jacket is CUTE. Plus, as Nina Garcia would say, it looks expensive. It looks like it could be Rag & Bone or something you'd stumble across in Intermix. Very fall-friendly. Like.
Haute Hippie Plaid Silk Halter Wrap Gown ($795). The ultimate dichotomy! Plaid is so unexpected for this gorgeous silk gown, it makes me so happy. That price, however... Looks like I'll have this one bookmarked waiting for a sale.
