Alexa Chung for Tommy Hilfiger | Oversized Checkered Coats

Have you heard? Last month, Alexa Chung, style "it" girl extraordinaire, was tapped as guest editor at Tommy Hilfiger through January of next year, which means she'll be curating (and photographed wearing) a monthly edit of her favorite pieces from the American designer's label.

These checkered plaid coats really make the case for investing in an over-sized coat for the winter. The play on proportions -- pairing skinny pants under the over-sized, masculine cut of the coat looks very of-the-moment right now. There's a menswear-inspired element here to the styling -- the simple button-down tops underneath the exaggerated navy/black/white plaid and red/black 'lumberjack' pattern on the coats, and pointed monk strap buckled shoes.

And all that extra fabric will certainly feel welcome when snow season starts. Two words: plaid cocoon (Tommy knows how to name his coats!).

  1. I really love the red coat. Would it be suitable for men? Where can I get it?
