With a change of the seasons, there's always an awkward transition period for our closets. What to wear? The good news is that, when it comes to autumn, plaid is absolutely always in style. And when the temperatures finally drop and the leaves start to fall, we like to layer the print just about everywhere. "​​I love how plaid feels like part of a tradition as the air starts getting cooler. It's almost synonymous with pumpkins, apple cider donuts and cozy fireplaces," says Reader of the Week Neha Gandhi, who was inspired by "Coat Check" in our March issue. Gandhi styled a blanket scarf as a cape and paired it with sleek leggings and brown booties for a cozy apple-picking look.
