There is no question that the biggest coat trend for Fall 2013 is plaid, as seen at Celine and Stella McCartney, to name a couple. I tend to go for the trends that will be wearable for months or even years to come, out of respect for my wallet and my tiny closet. Given that Los Angeles doesn’t have too many coat-weather days, I turned to eBay to fulfill my plaid coat craving. This one from BB Dakota is just warm and lightweight enough. The long lapel and buckle details ad a little edge, which is always welcomed.
