It’s all about check, hounds-tooth, square, and tartan prints this autumn. I love it! Tartan was all the rage on the catwalk, featured by the likes of Chanel, Moschino, Versace, and Christoher Kane.
I love the punky and grunge vibe, as well as the mix of colours showcased on both the catwalk and high-street. The shops are filling up with lots of different varieties for sale, from mini kilts to the trusted tartan shirt. Despite the punky connotations of tartan, it’s a fashion classic. So you might be able to dig out some old favourites from previous seasons, and work them into this year’s style. If you can afford it though, it’s worth investing in some quality tartan pieces. I’m on the hunt for a gorgeous wee kilt.
I snapped up a pair of cool and funky tartan leggings from Topshop last week, for a mere £25! The colours in the design are great, ranging from white, to bright red and green, making them ultra versatile. I couldn’t wait to show off my new trendy trousers, so I wore them last Friday night for drinks in our house for Jamie’s 30th birthday. I wore them with a long, simple, emerald-green, low v-neck t-shirt from Topshop, with grey and gold slipper pumps from Accesorize. It was such a simple outfit, yet spoke volumes because of the bold tartan print on my legs! I finished off the look with some smudged kohl eyeliner and the trusted MAC Lady Danger on my lips.
