Cropped Plaid Jacket

Cropped Plaid Jacket

Having lived through the grunge era, and partaken of the faux-homeless look courtesy of Marc Jacobs and Kurt Cobain circa 1993, I'm not about to go back down that road. Thankfully, this time around, plaid has taken a ladylike turn. This Cropped Plaid Jacket by Gap has a slightly boxy fit that reminds me more of Jackie O. in her Camelot days than the wannabe grunge gods I went to high school with. I see it with a black pencil skirt for a retro-cool look, or slim jeans and layered sweaters for a more modern silhouette.
