Tartan Trend Alert

Winter is here and tartan is trending.

Plaid is the Canadian name for the Scottish tartan and is no stranger to the fashion industry.

Traditionally plaid is thick in texture and is great at warding off the chilly winter weather.  So why not take the plaid from your closet and give them an updated touch with these easy styling tips. 

Office Looker

The office or after-work drinks look is easy to create by tucking a plaid button-down top into a complementary coloured calf length skirt finished off with a heel or over the knee boots.  Kay has complemented her calf length skirt with the taupe colour in her button down plaid blouse, paired with a bold necklace.

Patterned Puzzle

Pairing a printed top with a plaid skirt for a bold patterned look can be a bit tricky.  Lacey paired a polka-dot blouse with a high-waist skirt keeping the palette bright and fun from head to toe.

Faux Real

Faux fur and plaid are delicious together.  A solid fur placed on top of any plaid creates rich texture and an easy creative touch to any plaid outfit.  Lacey wears a black and white classic plaid with an oversized vest and faux fur hood and shawl. 

Snow Bunny

Bundle up with a sleeveless vest on cold winter mornings, allowing your plaid sleeves to peek out!  A great casual and classic look.

Crisp and Classic

Keep it simple with a plaid top and skinny jeans. Add a bit of flare with coloured or patterned flats.

Plaid can be masculine but it’s no secret that plaids brighten up the mood of any fabric and are an easy way to make every outfit look (eye-catchy) appealing to the eye and bold.

Try to think of plaid as a way to venture outside the box!
