Nope, your eyes are not deceiving you. What you're looking at is, indeed, an ill-fitting jacket as if it was swiped from your granddad's closet. The fashion crowd's favorite plaid blazers from last season are much different now: Big, boxy and exaggeratedly shoulder-padded. While most showgoers opted for neutral colors, others made more of a statement in white (and belted, as seen on stylist Rachael Wang) or a trusty plaid print embellished with grommets. Would you give this street style trend a try? To be honest, we're still warming up to it.
