How to wear...a tartan shirt.
A tartan shirt is something I imagine quite a few of us already have in our wardrobes. I love a checked shirt, ooh I do. I have a few, but my boyfriend has TONS and I plan on stealing them from him...(S, if you're reading this, you won't notice they're gone, I promise xD)
Normally I wear tartan shirts open, with a vest, jeans and converses, but if you wanted to dress it up a bit more, or go a bit grunge - a la the fashion this season, wearing it with big boots and a beanie is a sure hit. I like the thought of wearing it tucked into a pair of shorts like this, but if you're like me and don't have the confidence to wear shorts like that, it'd look good tucked into a black skater skirt too.

Can you see a theme emerging? Yes, I think tartan looks best with black. A tartan skirt is top on my wishlist as the weather draws colder...expect a lot of tartan actually. I think a cropped band tee would look good showing the tiniest bit of skin, with big black boots and a massive coat to keep you warm in these frigid months. A fur-lined coat will probably be my coat of choice this year, the collar on this one is especially cute.

I know some may think a tartan dress is going TOO FAR with the tartan trend, but I happen to think it's cute. Plus, it's £18 from New Look, and for that price you can't really go wrong. Perfect for a dinner date or drinks with friends, dressing it up with a kimono and jewelry will soften the look and make it look less grungy. Alternatively, wearing it with tights and converses would also make it a great daytime look, and is probably a look I'll be wearing in lectures.
