TRENDS OF AUTUMN
DO IT LIKE A SCOTTISH
|Tartan in catwalks fall 2013|
Hey everyone! How are you all? I hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. This is my third instalment in the "Trends of autumn" series. This time we are gonna talk about a trend that has come and go many times in the fashion world. Also is one of my favorites!What do Scottish people, punk music and this fall's trends have in common? You guessed right! Tartan! The lovely checked print in many colors from the usual (yet always loved) red to bink and green, tartan is one of the hottest trends this fall. It can be seen in cute dresses, suits, pants and even coats. Of course let's not forget the tartan shirts which are always associated with the punk musical movement. Red tartan is the first and safest choice. I myself, have indulged with a beloved red tartan shirt which always makes me feel a bit cooler than i actually am. Pairing with a leather jacket and some converse or even biker boots, the tartan print can become really edgy and rock.
However this fall, the sweeter and more ladylike side of tartan is exposed. Cute woolen coats, sharp blazers and girlie skirts, give a fresh breath to this traditional trend. And this range of new colors helps the tartan to sneak in our closet easier. Match your skirt to a creme jumper or your blazer with a pair of black pants and you will feel like you are living in some beautiful little town in Scotland. And everyone have to admit Scotalnd is beautiful! Almost all the designer brands have tartan pieces in their autumn collections, like Moschino, Celine and Louis Vuitton. And for the bolder ones listen to this: Tartan on tartan! Yes you heard me right. High fashion brands such as Lanvin and Dolce and Cabbana took the trend a step further by daring what used to be condemned; pairing check with check prints. If they suggest it then it can't be that wrong right? So either if you pick a subtle coat and skirt or even you dare to mix and match two pieces together, you should give this trend which comes from the roots and the traditions of Scotland, a try. Trust me tartan will not let you down ;)
