Where to buy…Plaid blazer?

Plaids or checks are very seen on the streets for past few seasons. I am not crazy about mass following of trends and that I felt about long boyfriend blazers. But boyfriend blazer with checks, oh that’s the item I cannot resist. Do you remember Vivienne Westwood Anglomania collection back in 1993 and man's suits made in wool tartan, invented by Vivi herself? Oh those were the real days of punk. Last year many boys around fashion shows and parties mainly in Paris animated me with rocking plaids; on jackets, suits and shirts. RTW was not so passionate about them on outwear except Alta moda pronta in Milan that offered to boys lot of plaids for fall 09, but zero for the girls. So again we are borrowing (irreclaimable this time) from our boys.
We used to think they are too sensitive like outwear because they are already detail for itself. I remember last year how I caused 24h drama with complaining I am too too Kurt Cobain when I bought plaid bomber jacket. But again how can a girl ever be too much Kurt? He is totally important person for our grunge looks.
1. FIRST
Don’t worry about simplicity and find really good plaid blazer (suggesting vintage)Plaids are more than simple.
Misslikey is enormously head over heels for Jean Paul Gaultier plaid blazer from VagabondNyc but her LIKES are also checks in different patterns from topshop and
Smythe Dickens wool-blend jacket from net-a-porter
2. SECOND
Then wear it in a model off duty style on leggings, black stockings with basic dress, in manner of Britt punk, on your favorite jean jeanies for college look, with harem, tweed or wool pants for complete glance a la France. See?! Plaids are beyond practical and give you a very warm fall look.

Love to have one, i've been looking round vintage shops since early spring for a good one (still looking) needless to say, I'm picky, but I just know, that when I find one that I like, really really like, I'll wear it for years! Fab blog, thanks for posting :)

I'm so mad! I had a vintage checked blazer that was very similar to the center one. And I let someone borrow it never to see it again!

Love Grace.

The first one from topshop is awesome! I love that color, I never really thought to buy a plaid blazer, but these picks are great

That just blew my mind-- a slouchy plaid boyfriend blazer? That would be AWESOME.

Great choices! I love plaid items and I think this look will never go out of style for autumn/winter months.
