Before we speak about checked swing outerwear, I want to define the word 'swing' coat. This style was made to cover the full skirts and dresses in the 50's. The flared silhouette allows this cover-up to make a real statement in the streets. The following style of outerwear was often decorated with statement collars and buttons. I personally love the vivid printed versions. Today I bring you a Polyvore compilation of checked swing coats with unstructured shape. This eye-catching layer will for sure add elegance and vintage charm to your look. This design is quite fitted in the shoulders and flared out from the bust line, which creates a tent-like shape while you walk. This great topper looks great with skinnies, boyfriends and of course various length and fit dresses. The plaid is one of the most popular trends this year, that's why I highly recommend you to make an investment to keep yourself in style and warmth. Anyway, we are here to know the best ways to wear it now.
How about keeping it retro inspired by teaming tartan version with burgundy slipdress, brown satchel and cool flat booties.
Here we see a front zip wool style in burnt orange/grey/beige/black plaids, which looks awesome worn with burnt orange skinnies, cashmere sweater and lace-up mannish boots.
That's a statement double-breasted plaid topper which looks ideal teamed with cable-knit beige white high-neck sweater, deep red skinnies, knitted pom pom beanie and suede, dark blue booties.
Keep it sporty and casual with a wool outerwear, cocoon, quilted sweater, asymmetric, wrap mini skirt and burgundy runners.
The pale blue checked outerwear covers a striped fit-and-flare dress. Love the strappy sandals and pale blue doctor's bag.
The flannel black and red version covers a black long sleeve ensemble which is styled with red bag and high-heeled booties.
Keep it simple and boyish: flannel wool cover-up, leather red skinny pants, white high neck sweater, lace-up red sporty brogues and red bag.
The collarless coat will ideally fit this cream top and indigo skinnies. Love the cream colored handbag and lace-up dark brown booties.
The white plaid layer looks ideal teamed with ripped, cuffed jeans and pointed-toe silver metallic booties.
That's a sophisticated street style look. Keep it simple with grey tee, ripped jeans and black booties.
Another Tomboy style, which includes a dark blue pullover with black sleeves, wide, boyfriends and pointed toe pumps.
