Plaid is a huge trend for the fall / winter season, from classic button down styles to statement outerwear.

This pattern can be easily incorporated into your wear-to-work staples and casual weekend favorites.

Hamptons Magazine Editor-In-Chief and Lifestyle Expert Samantha Yanks is here to show you three gorgeous plaid looks.

LOOK 1: The Plaid Shirt

Plaid shirts are one of the most popular ways people like to wear the plaid trend, however we’ve elevated this classic piece with a more elegant windowpane plaid print blouse. We paired this top with a chic leather pencil skirt, both by J.Jill, one of my favorite brands that just opened their first stores in New York: one on the Upper West Side, and one on the Upper East Side. I completed this look with sheer hosiery by Donna Karan, and this is the perfect desk to dinner look.

Welcome to sweater coat season, and this plaid American Eagle maroon sweater blazer is one of my favorite pieces for fall. What’s so great about sweater coats and outerwear in general is that you can really play with color and print. Playing with the monochromatic trend we’re also seeing for fall, we paired this with a maroon top and jegging, also by American Eagle. The booties and fringe bag add a little boho twist.

Blanket scarves are every woman’s best friend. You can wrap yourself in them on a chilly evening, add a pop of color or print to a simple look or experiment with trends, like plaid, without the commitment of an everyday coat or pricey investment piece. This black and white plaid blanket scarf by American Eagle is super cozy and cool, and only $35. We paired it with a luxe turtleneck by Calypso St. Barth and a perfect blue skinny jean by Vineyard Vines. To make this a bit dressier, we completed the look with a classic pump by Thalia Sodi for Macy’s, which are only $69! Such a versatile look you can wear anywhere in New York.
