Years ago I owned a tartan plaid pleated skirt (with matching pointy toe flats) from JCrew and I sort of wish I still owned it. I just love this dark green and navy combo and I’m so happy to see it back this season in a McQ Alexander McQueen blazer that I keep seeing everywhere (not to mention the adorable dress version or the pants that would look just stunning with a plain navy or ivory turtleneck). I love pairing this with winter white pants or a dress for work. The leather skinny pants in this photo are also a pretty awesome combination. The only problem with this blazer is it’s price tag of $1,000. But that’s a legit problem so here are a few lower priced replacements to get that prep school look (Club Monaco offers a sick pair of these pants if you prefer Scottish bottoms).
Olivia Moon Plaid Blazer – $88
Gap Plaid Academy Blazer – $98
