Leave it to Katy Perry to turn men’s plaids into a smoking, hot commodity. Katy graced the September cover of the UK Elle wearing a black and white Dolce and Gabbana peplum top and shorts ensemble. It’s a new take on old classic and one that has been reinvented more times that we can count. What makes these pieces stand out is the shape, the style, and the fearless hemline. If truth be told, Katy Perry could easily pull off a brown paper sack. But, lucky for us she is the perfect model for our feature on the men’s plaids for women. Okay, we are a bit Katy Perry obsessed, but who is not?
So, how to afford this new trend and still look like you just stepped off the runway? Ruelala came to the rescue with this Hilary Radly black and grey belted coat. Its up-to-the-minute style and versatility from day to night make this a perfect layering addition to your fall wardrobe. Plus, it is a virtual steal at $79.90. This coat retails at $159.
We also love the cut of this Marley Jumper by Tabitha, an Anthropologie-exclusive line. This dress can be purchased at Anthropologie.com for $198, plus free shipping for ordering over $150 in merchandise. Worn alone or with tights and a turtleneck, this dress is an ideal travel piece and a cinch to pack.
