Tartan is a huge trend this season as seen on celebrities such as Rita Ora, Madonna and even The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Not many people dare to rock the full on look, but Lucy Hill is here to show you a few ways to add a hint of tartan into your autumn/winter wardrobe.

It’s a super bold print; especially the classic red tartan style and a lot of people find it really hard to wear without feeling like they stand out from the crowd too much. Here are our three ways to introduce a little tartan into your life.

Outfit 1: The Tartan Skirt:

The tartan skirt is definitely my favourite piece this season; it can be dressed up or dressed down, it’s a look that will suit the majority and is adding tartan without over doing it. Here I have teamed it with a cute fluffy black jumper & a pair of rocker heeled style boots for an edgy daytime look. You could even add a red satchel as an accent piece.

Outfit 2: The Tartan Scarf:

Adding a tartan scarf is a great way of just adding a pinch of the trend if you’re not quite confident enough to rock the whole look. Plus, a colourful accessory is perfect for brightening up a winter outfit. Here I have teamed it with a heavy grey coat, black jeans and classic heeled Chelsea boots for a casual daytime look.

Outfit 3: The Tartan Top:

If you’re feeling a bit bolder, why not try a tartan top. It’s a real statement piece and will definitely make you stand out from the crowd! Here I have added a cute structured crop top with a black pencil skirt, statement clutch & strappy heels for a perfect night out look.

Of course if you’re feeling extremely confident with the gorgeous pattern, why not try a dress, leggings or even a statement blazer as seen on the Moschino AW ’13 catwalk. It’s a classic look that will always come back into fashion. Hey if it’s good enough for Rita Ora, it’s good enough for us, right?
