How To: Finding the perfect timeless and classic, yet stylish coat can be difficult. Plaid is always a great go-to pattern because it remains timeless. Try this coat from Free People in a classic red and black plaid. Mixing patterns can work when each pattern is a different scale from the other. When pairing polka-dots with plaid, go for a large polka-dot pattern. This sweater is the perfect example. Finish this look off with a pair of jeans and ankle booties which are ‘in’ this season. For example, try this pair of metallic cut-out ankle boots.
