Trend Talk A/W '13 || Tartan


Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I've written a 'Trend Talk' post [you can read my first one here] so I thought- what better time to write another one than autumn/winter? A/W fashion has definitely got to be one of my favorite fashion seasons. Comfy sweaters, boots, hats.. Not to mention that September is like, the January of the fashion world. One September, I'll be at London Fashion Week, you wait! 

One of the trends that has caught my eye recently has definitely been tartan. Usually paired with some grunge, I can only insist that this look is due to be big this season. Yes, it MAY just remind you a bit of your school skirt [or kilt if you're super lucky like me..] but paired with the right accessories, I think this look is totally something I would wear. 

Big on the catwalks of Celiné, Marc Jacobs and Moschino, who have brought trad tartan to life, this trend is definitely for the fashion conscious! My favorite way to style a staple item like one of those below, is with leather boots and chunky chain necklaces. I've already spied a gorgeous tartan dress in Penneys/Primark for only €17! Think Scottish kilts with a bit of Courtney Love- edgy, witty and modern. If grunge isn't your thing, try a preppy plaid pinafore with lace socks. Too girly? Throw a denim jacket over a tartan dress and cowboy style boots for some chilled out vibes. The list is endless- it just depends how YOU eye it up.

Below are my favorite tartan picks from high street stores. Although red is a common colour, dont be afraid to challenge colours like navy, forest green and and burnt orange.


Will you be digging out your old school skirt this A/W? Do you dare to wear tartan?
