This autumn's favourite trend, tartan is just starting to emerge on the High Street in the form of jackets, trousers and skirts. As I am attempting to not appear to the outside world as a full victim of fashion (even though you dear readers know the truth) I have decided to merely hint at the trend. Hinting at trends is easiest done through accessories so why not indulge in a tartan/plaid handbag?
Ralph Lauren featured the designs on the catwalk in various forms from satchel to tote but if you cannot afford the designer price tag then the High Street has some great alternatives.

As always, Topshop are in on the trend with this Woodcutter check despatch bag (£30) which is a great way to inject colour in to your outfit. The lumberjack style bag has a leather strap making it stronger and features two buckles.
River Island also have a check shopper (£29.99) which is a great size for a day bag, particularly if you have to carry books or magazines around. It has a handle and a long fabric strap with chain detail.
