From dresses to skirts and trousers to blazers, tartan is a firm staple for your wardrobe this 2014/2015 winter season.
This past week has shown a drop in temperatures across the UK and for the first time in what seems like forever, I’ve been scraping the ice off of my windscreen. There’s nothing worse than feeling the frost nipping at your fingers and ears so it’s about time we looked into covering them stylishly and effectively.
Tartan is cosy and the highland pattern has endured an undeniable love affair with the fashion industry for decades. It’s warming to the eye and physically soft to the touch, but it’s not just the traditional red that’s hot on the high street right now. There are a variety of checks, colours and materials available, so you’re sure to find an option to compliment your colour palate.
If you’re warm toned (dark hair, brown/green eyes and olive/beige skin tone) then you’re likely to suit red, oranges, greens and brown tartans.
If you’re cool toned (lighter hair, green/blue/hazel eyes and paler skin) then you’re more suited to reds with blue undertones, such as cherry, blues, purples, and mints tartans.
If you’re unsure of wearing this print then why not experiment with accessories? Capes and scarves are set to be extremely popular this winter and easy to mix and match with items that you already have to spruce up your look. If you’re not sure you’re up to the task then why not give tartan shoulder pads or elbow patches a go?
There’s a wealth of options out there for you fashionistas, it’s all trial and error, but definitely a look I would recommend embracing.
