Be A/W Ready With This Seasons Tartan Trend

Well this season is all about tartan, plaids and checks. So make sure you are a/w ready.

In the Victorian and Edwardian eras, tartan-clad garments featured in fashion catalogues. By then, tartan had shifted from being mainly a component of men’s clothing to become an important part of women’s fashion. In consequence of its association with the British aristocracy and military, tartan developed an air of dignity and exclusivity. Because of this, tartan has made reappearances in the world of fashion several times. For instance, tartan made a resurgence in its use in punk fashion. In the late 1970s punk music was a way for youth in the British Isles to voice their discontent with the ruling class. The unorthodox use of tartan, which had long been associated with authority and gentility, was then seen as the expression of discontent against modern society. In this way tartan, worn unconventionally, became an anti-establishment symbol.

Tartan plaids are as old as time, which makes them excellent investment pieces. Check out Rita Ora, Cheryl Cole and Tallia Storm who have all been photographed wearing different forms of tartan.
