Fall Capsule #1: So Much Plaid


Just call me Queen of the Plaid this fall. I’ve been all about the plaid scarves, shirts, and vests during this capsule collection. No print has reigned more supreme.

I’m just surprised I haven’t broken down and ordered these pants from Old Navy.

It’s just funny that plaid is so big in fall and florals are so big in the spring. Both prints to me seem to be able to transition to both seasons, but no one is ever SUPER EXCITED about pastel plaids in the spring (and vice versa in the fall about dark florals).

Oh style, you’re a mystery, but I love you so.

Ps. J.Crew Factory Customer Service just informed me that they unexpectedly sold out of the Colorblock Coat that I wanted SO BADLY….and I will not be receiving the one I ordered…on October 31. Sad face over here. My dreams of a perfect red/blue/white coat are crushed.

  • You are the queen of plaid – and you’ve been rocking it! Since I broke down and bought 2 of these scarves myself, I do appreciate the constant looks to copy :) This one is great with the olive pants!

  • That really sucks about the coat. Did they at least give you some form of compensation? I had ordered a sweater in August, it was on back order until the beginning of October. By the end of October, I was fed up, cancelled the order, and then it showed up on my doorstep three days later. JCF can be so frustrating sometimes.
