Style for Style: How to Wear Tartan Skirt

So you've probably already taken my word for it that tartan is a trend and have seen it emerge on the High Street but when you get the items home, how do you actually wear it? Well I have taken on the task for you!

I picked a tulip shaped check skirt (£15) from Dorothy Perkins which I particularly liked because of the unusual shape. The pleating detail give the skirt a Vivienne Westwood edge and definitely makes it look more expensive.

I really like plaid skirts, particularly in a classic school girl way with a black jumper so I teamed it with a roll neck batwing jumper. I then thought the ensemble would be finished out nicely with a pair of heeled brogues but it's so cold today that I had to go for flat boots.

Plaid skirts are so detailed that it's best to keep everything else plain and simple. It's a great winter item as it adds colour to a look and tartan is often quite a heavy weave. What do you think?

LOVE. IT. Reminds me of a really cool dress (square neckline!) I got from my sister in middle school (never dared wearing it outside of the house, sadly :( ). Never thought that look would be popular again after the 90s, I really wish I'd kept it. :(

(or I might do the same thing by tucking in a skinny tank and putting on a longline cardi on top and adding a belt)

I love it! Except if I was wearing it, I'd might add my own twist by cinching my waist with a skinny patent leather belt to finish off the look.
