Since it looks like quite a few people like tartan (it is my most successful subject ever!!), I think I will have to update my last year’s post about it, with this year’s tartan clothing…..
There are two problems though, the first one is, there’s not much around, I suppose the trend is fading. The second one is, Tartan needs to be good, otherwise it looks awful, so prices are definitely rather high.
But, I searched extensively and found some interesting things, even though not many, to be fair.. As a matter of fact, it has really been difficult to find tartan clothing and what there is, isn’t very nice, lots of cheap stuff!! I have found a site though, where they sell “preowned” things. They are mostly quality designer pieces:
There ‘s otherwise “The Outnet”, from the “Net-A-Porter’s Group , which sells previous season’s items at discounted prices. Here too, you can find some very good quality things, perhaps the only way most of us can end up owning a designer’s piece!!
First of all, I would like to show you some accessories. I like the idea of wearing a simple outfit and then adding just one tartan piece:
Such a nice wallet! Why hide it in your handbag, use it as a small clutch instead!!
Or you could go for something more casual:
Or an I-Pad case, again, used as a clutch:
What about adding some tartan shoes? Not with the bag of course, instead of it!
I love this pair of high heels or these quite unusual ankle boots:
Can you imagine a LBD or a dark grey one with them?!? Beautiful.
If you really want something tartan on your phone too, here’s a case for it:
I also found this belt:
I would wear it on a pair of jeans, wouldn’t that be chic?!
Let’s now talk about clothes.
I have a gorgeous outdoor’s jacket:
This is the first time ever I see a faux fur collar which looks like a real one, it does look really nice.
Another jacket, which could be worn in a more elegant way, or not:
Now a couple of shirts, a silk one:
and a cotton one:
Next a top,
Isn’t it quite interesting? I would wear it with either a shirt or a long sleeves top underneath.
Ok, now some skirts!
a lovely, vintage dress:
Do wear all of these things with plain and newest trends for maximum effect.
This is it I am afraid…
