Autumn style is often characterized by warm, neutral hues. But if you want to break away from this boring mold, then why not go for one of fall’s hottest styles: Tartan! Sported by celebrities such as Emma Watson and Kylie Jenner, this Scottish-inspired printed design is one of the most popular looks for Autumn 2014. Be just like these fashionable stars by following these ways to wear tartan for fall:
Be Dressed to the Nines
Tartan is channeled in numerous looks, but its most popular piece remains to be the dress. Available in A-line designs and pencil-line styles, a checkered dress is the best way to look girly this fall. Since the print is an attention go-getter by itself, make sure to pair it with a solid-colored jacket or sweater. Keep your legs warms with a nice pair of tights. As for the shoes? Tartan will surely look good with a pair of boots, booties, loafers, even oxfords!
Be Trendy with Tartan Trousers
Want to stand out from the crowd? Then shop for a good pair of plaid trousers. Perkily printed, this design will make you the toast of the town – as long as you know how to style it well. Avoid the clashing of prints by pairing your pants with a plain (but not necessarily boring) top. Alternating solid colors (say a white tank top and a black jacket) is another good way to style this print. Boots, booties, loafers and oxfords again are excellent choices for this outfit.
Be Outstanding in Tartan Outerwear
Make a monotonous look jump into life by matching it with a patterned jacket or cardigan. Mix it with a simple tee and jeans combination – even your little black dress. Such a pairing will surely put the much-needed oomph into your otherwise dull outfit.
Be Stunning with Tartan Shoes
If a Tartan-inspired piece of clothing is too much for your comfort, you can still catch up with this autumn trend by enclosing your feet with it. A good pair of checkered pumps can transform your simple, laidback look (say, your favorite LBD or tee and jeans attire) into an amazing autumn ensemble.
Checks and prints, while overpowering, can make you look fabulous this fall. Save yourself from the usual fashion faux pas by following these ways on how to wear tartan for fall.
