Plaid Outerwear ( Coat/ Cardigan/ Blazer/ Jacket)

A. Plaid Coat+ Plain Dress

Plaid print is easy to make you stand out from the crowd. So when you wear these prints, the first principle is making other outfits simple in case your whole look will become too messy-messy.

If you wear the plaid coat, then I recommend you to take a dress in neutral hues, such as white, black, beige, camel, etc. To add some extra flair to this ensemble, add a pair of sandals or boots to this look.
