Walking through London yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice that tartan skirts seem to have made a bit of a comeback for Autumn/Winter 2014. I must have seen about five girls wearing tartan skirts in the space of 30 seconds!
I’m a big fan of tartan skirts – I think they’re a classic – so I was really happy to see them about again. On that note, I’ve put together a list of five must-have tartan skirts you’ll love. Here they are:
Circle Skirt In Red Tartan Print from ASOS (£28.00)
The length of this tartan print circle skirt from ASOS is what attracted me to it. This particular skirt is a great option for both work and play. Tuck in a white shirt for work or tuck in a graphic t-shirt for coffee with the girls. Either way, you’ll look fantastic in this vibrant piece.
Rocket Tartan Mini Skirt from Vivienne Westwood (£126.00)
I have to admit, I’m not as crazy as most about the work of Vivienne Westwood, however this tartan mini skirt is a beautiful piece. The colours are rich but not too bold and the cut is edgy. I’m 99% sure this will look fantastic with whatever you pair it with. That being said, it is a pricier option when there are so many much cheaper styles on the market.
Tartan Check Mini Skirt with Wool from M&S (£35.00)
I’ve never paid much attention to M&S, partly because both my Nan and Mum buy their clothes there, however this blue wool tartan skirt is one of my favourites. Pair this with a blouse and blazer, throw on some black heels, and you’ve got yourself the perfect trendy office look.
Tartan Tube Skirt from Oasis (£25.00)
This is probably my least favourite on the list, however I still like it because I think Oasis has a nice selection of clothing and is a little underrated. The main aspect of this skirt I like is the versatility of it and how it’s suitable for both casual and smart. Tuck in a t-shirt or scoop neck top for a little casual edge, or throw on a blazer and blouse for a job interview or meeting.
Plaid Circle Skirt from American Apparel (£48.00)
Skater skirts are brilliant for nights out. Throw this American Apparel skirt on with a cropped top or sweatshirt (as photographed) and you’ve got yourself a relatively effortless and affordable look that’s cute and even a little sexy. Perfect!
Opt for tartan this season and just have fun with it!
