Plaid fashion is a staple of almost every decade. From its historic Scottish roots to the ’70s punk rock era to its mark on ’90s pop culture a lá Clueless and Britney Spears, the timeless print is constantly evolving. And now, thanks to Taylor Swift’s cottagecore style transformation, plaid coats are winter’s most coveted statement piece.

According to global fashion search platform Lyst, “searches for tartan pieces have increased 29 percent this month.” Adding that “following the release of Taylor Swift’s new album, searches for coats including the term ‘plaid’ jumped 49 percent in one day, and the featured Stella McCartney coat is now sold out.”

To get in on the trend, check out the chicest plaid coats that will elevate even the most simplest of winter outfits.
