16 Aug For the love of Tartan and Checks.
With a nostalgic feeling of throwing it back to the 90’s and the one of the most iconic girly films of the 90’s Clueless this season is all about Tartan and Checks. Brighter, bigger and definitely more fashionable than ever. From preppy to rock with the play it safe in between. We are loving all things Tartan and Check.
There is a difference between the two even though some would think they are the same. A check is a pattern of modified stripes consisting of crossed horizontal and vertical lines forming squares. Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours.
We are featuring from River Island and Topshop as both these brands have the best offer on the high street at the moment. But I am sure that the rest of the high street will soon follow suit as Tartan and Check are key players for the season ahead. Below are some of my favourites in-store now. The versatility of this trend is that you can easily head to the office and then add a pair of heels and some statement jewellery and you are set for a great night out.
Even though this trend comes back year after year, it was mainly known as great work-wear, whereas now Tartan and Check is very must a fashion favourite and is the new streetwear trend. Add a pop of colour to lift the check or tartan. Mix check with some prints to really enhance your style . Always remember it’s your style your way!
