Tartan & Plaid together? Oh my

Sometime last month I did this post about the early trend of tartan/plaid/squares/grids that was coming straight off the streets during Fashion Week. Well as expected, that was simply the warm up and we are now in full tartan heaven, with high street stores surely only weeks or days away from dropping their offering into store, to further spread the plaid joy. Like it or lump it, it’s going to be here for a while, so jump on board I say (with caution), but pick your print carefully and style it up with good sense, to avoid looking like Scotland has just thrown up all over you.

To roll like the Celine/Stella Mc Cartney plaid, opt for neat light coloured tartan knits or sweaters and maybe even combine plaids, a-la-Ms. Centenera, if thats for your choosing. Otherwise channel the Saint Laurent inspiration by embracing the grungey tartan shirt or baby doll dress. If this all seems a bit much, but you do still want to get involved, then there’s always the trusty old tartan sneaker, the Vans shape reinterpreted by Celine. However if Celine is slightly out of your price range, then give it 5 minutes, and surely Zara will have a more viable option in store for you.
