Latest Trend: Tartan

As we all know, tartan has made an impact as a trend in recent times. Tartan, in contrast with the floral and polka dot prints that I wear most frequently, isn't exactly the softest or girliest print to wear. However, I have always liked tartan and I've found a few ways to align the print with my personal style. Tartan reminds me of my childhood. Remember those tartan pencil cases we used to take to school in the 1990s? I also owned the most beautiful tartan dress when I was a young girl and it will forever be one of my favourite pieces. I wish I could find a picture of it right now. The tartan dress pictured below from Alannah Hill is the latest item I am totally in love with. I tried it on the other day. I adore it because the tight pencil style fit, the low cut neckline and the pink lining are the perfect contrast with the tartan print. I like the way these elements balance out; it's the same with my blue tartan coat which I wore here. I've always loved tartan shoes especially tartan flats (there are so many beautiful tartan colour combinations that look adorable for shoes). But let's be honest, I'm never going to be wearing a pair of tartan boots because that just doesn't suit my personal style. I like to wear tartan shoes with a classy and feminine cut, often combined with a bow or jewel. I love tartan accessories particularly tartan scarves. I have a couple which I've had for years. If it was winter here right now I'd love to pair a tartan scarf and gloves with a camel coloured coat. In terms of this Vivienne Westwood tartan bag, what more do I need to say? It speaks for itself surely!?

Tartan is so lovely, isn't it? Especially when the "base" of it is red. I love that red/green/black/white tartan the best, though green/blue/white is gorgeous, too!
