Worn dressed up or dressed down, as illustrated here, tartan is incredibly versatile and will lend any outfit a dash of new season cool. Any of this little lot catching your eye?
ONE: This fabulous tartan skirt is sophisticated, but with a little bit of edge. It will take you to the office or out for dinner and drinks – look for it in M&S from August, priced at €47.50.
TWO: I’m a little bit in love with these chocolate plaid Converse (£49.99). Team them with jeans or with flowery dresses for a smidgeon of lumberjack chic – they’re available now.
THREE: With its casual laidback vibe, this check backpack from Penneys (Primark in the UK) is an absolute bargain at just €10. It hits stores in early August.
FOUR: If the backpack’s a little too studenty for your tastes, how about this structured, ladylike little number? It’s Limited Edition from M&S and will be around the €40 mark.
FIVE: It reminds me just a little of the uniforms in Home and Away, but I’ve fallen for this sweet little tartan dress just the same. It’s €17 and you’ll find it in Penney from August.
My autumn wardrobe won’t be complete till I’ve found the perfect over-sized checked shirt – to be worn, mainly, around my waist. And you - are you feeling the tartan trend?
