Though we’re dreading the cold weather, one thing we are looking forward to is buying a fabulous new coat. Gwen Stefani fought the London chill in this gorgeous Jean Paul Gaultier red wool tartan coat with black patent leather trim this weekend and got us thinking plaid. A switch from the solid black, camel or even red coat, a checkered print like Gwen’s is definitely fun. Since little else is visible in the colder months, why not live it up with your outerwear? If you have the power to splurge you can get Gwen’s Jean Paul Gaultier coat, $4480 at select Sak’s Locations. If not, we picked some of our favorite — and affordable — plaid coats. And to see more celebrity favorite cold weather cover-ups check out our coat gallery for more options.
