Far removed from the traditional Scottish kilt and your nan’s jumper. Tartan has returned to the runways this past Fashion Week and with it has brought invigorating shapes and styles which can always be seen trickling down through the runway.
STYLEetc explores the ways in which you bring the tartan trend into your everyday fashion and nail the print every time.
Retro style doesn’t get much better than classic Fred Perry. Taking from the past is what fashion is all about, so embrace another returning trend this season and kill two birds with one killer shirt in this Fred Perry Bowling style.
Bowl a strike in the style stakes and pair this standout tee with black denim, both skirt and jeans work equally well. Hints of red and white patterning give added intrigue to the pattern, with a subtle heart motif transfer for personalised detail.
The yellow makes a nice change from classic tartan pairings, giving new life to the trend and making us immediately want to add this piece to our wishlist.
Adding a tartan accessory can give some extra quirk to your look. Imagine escalating that chic black suit one step further with a playful bag such as this Burberry Prorsum one. Complete with crisp white shirt and italian leather loafers, you’ll be all set to make a statement in the office.
Not just suited for business, this accessory makes a splash in urban style too, perfectly designed to colour and print clash with a louder look on the streets. Have fun mixing textures and adding a colour pop of red to the rest of your look to fully utilise the boldness of tartan.
Step outside your comfort zone and try tartan in a way that is anything but conventional with this strapless jumpsuit by Unique 21.
On its own this piece is perfect for nights out but for daytime chic layer over a white polo neck with an accent black beret for parisian influence. Pointed leather boots bring the whole look together, without overwhelming, letting the jumpsuit take centre stage.
