I’m super excited to see plaid and power suits making a strong comeback this season. I mean, it fulfills every one of my 90s sitcom dreams, à la Ally McBeal / the Practice.
But more than that, I’ve always been an admirer of menswear (obsessed, even). I love that this jacket feels like I borrowed it from the boys – from the double breasted buttons, longer length, to the structured shoulder. However, it still perfectly nips in at the waist, flattering the feminine figure. I keep the rest of the look simple: a white tee and black skinnies with flat black ankle booties. I continued the menswear inspiration with the large all-black watch, counterbalanced with the structured but feminine statement earrings.
