A/W 2012 Fashion Trends #5 TARTAN!

Here I am with another fashion trend post! I have chosen tartan, which I have noticed is everywhere this season! I find tartan a really fun print that mostly everyone can wear. I've had a look around the internet and hunted down some of my favourite items that showcase the tartan print!

I really like this shirt from, the combination of the classic print with the studs give it an edge and make it look really interesting. What I also noticed is that the studs remind me of a cross design which have been very popular recently. This would look great with a leather skirt like in the picture but also tucked into jeans, a skater skirt or even some denim shorts. It comes in 2 other colours but this is my favourite!

Next up is this skirt from ASOS. Firstly, I love how they have styled it with the simple white tee and the grey cardigan, it gives it a school girl theme which is really cute! However, you could wear this in a ton of different ways. Maybe with a thin knit cream or black jumper? My friend actually ordered this and in the flesh, it's quite thick, almost like a woolen material which would be ideal for the cold weather. I tried it on and although her's was a bigger size to what I would get, I felt like it made me look a little wide. This is probably due to the material. I must admit, it does look quite different in person than in the picture, but that is always the way with ASOS.

I think I have fallen in love with these shoes! It's like a studded tartan slipper dream! They are from ASOS as well and they're just so cute, they'd go great with any outfit to spruce it up a little this Autumn/Winter. Many of my shoes are quite boring and mostly black so these could be a good new edition! I think they are in the sale too or at least around the £25 mark. However, if you're looking for something a little more durable because I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, especially with shoes. Either way, I thought these were fun and a cute way to liven up an outfit every now and then.

I found these shorts from River Island and I thought they were really cute! You could pair this with a collared black sheer blouse (with or without sleeves; totally up to you!) with black tights and cute black pumps or studded flats. Also if you could find one, a tartan hair bow would look SO cute because you're matching the tartan in cute but subtle ways! These retail at £25 - which I think is really reasonable!

So there you have it, there are loads more examples of tartan out there for you but these were just a few that I picked. Tell me what you think and if you're loving the tartan trend this Autumn/Winter.
