If you've been obsessing over the very cottage and cabincore outfits Taylor Swift has donned in the releases of both her albums Folklore and Evermore, then you'd know that plaid coats aren't going anywhere. In fact, the shopping app Klarna uncovered a 409% increase in searches for "plaid" the week of the Swift's album’s release, compared to the same week in November. Something about the print just adds to the cozy feeling we so desperately need when the temperatures start to drop. Ever since she dropped the record, all I want to be doing is be cuddled up in a plaid coat in a field singing about made-up scenarios on love. If you agree, or simply just want to add the classic print to your wardrobe, then you've stumbled onto the right place.

While the print is classic, there's a variety of versions across all retailers, so we did the digging and found some of the most fashionable options on the market, in different styles, colors, and of course, price points. So whether you like your coats short, thin, or thick, there's an option amongst this mix for you. Keep scrolling to get shopping.
