Plaid is one of those prints that, against the odds, can truly pair with anything. Depending on the styling, plaid pieces can read preppy, rocker, or professional, making them versatile staples in any winter wardrobe. Whether you’re feeling the sophisticated edge of glen plaid or houndstooth, the playful-rebel vibe of tartan, or the sweetness of gingham (or better yet, the cocktail-of-cool when you mash them all together), this season, take dad’s plaid to the next-level by mixing, matching, and sometimes even clashing different plaid prints. Here, we've curated out favorite checkered coats (plus some skirts and pants) to wear all winter long.
