Plaid tends to be one of those trends that comes back in style every other season, in new iterations that feel more modern and trendy. This season, my favorite plaid piece is from minimalist brand Tibi, in a blazer that feels like a mix of professional and 90s grunge in a chic essential silhouette.
Designer Amy Smilovic is known for creating effortless staples in prints and colors that are meant to mix and match things you already have, and in my personal wardrobe they’re pieces that I continuously get compliments on no matter how many times I wear them.
This blazer is slightly oversized so it’s the perfect way to introduce a layer to your wardrobe, worn over a t-shirt and jeans for daytime, and over a slip dress for night. With or without the belt, it’s a elevated essential, under $1000 that’s worth every penny.
