Nothing beats a classic pattern, especially during the wintertime when tradition is front-of-mind. You can call it check, plaid or tartan, but these quintessential winter markings are what helps to make these cooler months feel warm and magical. Whether you prefer a more traditional version or one that has been reimagined, you can find a wide variety of coats in these styles available right now.
I recently pulled two of these distinct styles from my go-to contemporary fashion brand, Pinko. Since sometimes it’s all about feeling cozy in a classic, I chose this red tartan coat for a casual weekend of running errands in New York City.
For those days that call for a pinch of millennial pink to perk you up out of your winter blues, this longline, plaid coat is perfect. I wore it during a day of shopping, while in London last month.
The femme feels given by the pop of pink is a fresh take on the classic pattern. Yet, because of the boxy cut, the coat is balanced with masculinity… there’s that mix again.
Below, you can see more of how I styled each of these looks.
