Tartan has to be the trend to rival all trends for A/W 13.  I have a couple of tartan shirts but I thought I would invest in a classic red tartan skirt. I have an amazing mustard yellow kilt style tartan skirt that I got from a vintage shop in Manchester years ago which I love but it's teeny tiny, I can't believe I actually used to fit into it! 
I spotted this one from Glamorous and I love the style and shape of it. The material is quite thin - I would prefer a woolen one but for the price I can't complain. It fits perfectly and I love it! It's such a versatile piece and works whether you'd rather style it punky or preppy. Who can forget the 'Clueless' style top-to-toe tartan look?! I like the final outfit that I've styled the most, I just love the colour palette, mixing reds and burgundy shades - and it is mega cosy too! :)

Do you own anything tartan? And how will you be styling it over the next few months?



  1. LOVE the 'I'm all wrapped up for winter outfit' absolutely gorgeous and somehow tartan on tartan works really well! Great post :)

  2. You look so beautiful! I am obsessing with tartan this Autumn and all these looks are gorgeous but I adore the second one, I love jumpers like this! x

  3. You pull off these looks so well, I especially love the second one. A jumper partnered with the skirt looks lovely :)

  6. I do love a bit of double tartan so the jacket combo is a winner for me! My fave AW trend. <3
