Trend Watch: Totally Tartan

26 Nov 2015

UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel chats about trendy tartan and shares her top picks from Simply Be, New Look Inspire, and more in this trend watch post. 

Living in Scotland, it's pretty impossible to avoid tartan. Whether it's genuine formalwear, or tacky tourist shop scarves, I've learned to love tartan, and I've noticed a lot of it in the shops for autumn/winter. I prefer a monochromatic tartan, or one with some lovely red. These are my top plus size tartan picks. 

Lovedrobe Tartan Print Leggings


I don't think I'd style these leggings as photographed. I'd pair them with a flowy black top and a grey marl cardigan. Since I'm so obsessed with them, I'd probably wear my thigh high boots with them. 


Yours Black 3/4 Sleeve V Neck Top With Tartan Hem


This top seems to be inspired by menswear. It's a great option for those who want to dabble in the tartan trend without committing to an entire garment. 


H&M Cape


I've been looking for the perfect tartan cape. I like the subtle colours in this cape, but I'd love it more with a faux fur collar. This would look fab with a messy bun and a comfy pair of jeans. 


Koko Check Cardigan from Simply Be


This cardigan would be SO cute with a nice LBD and some sparkly pumps. OR some sparkly flats, let's be realistic haha. 


New Look Inspire Plus Size Red Check Mini Skirt

This is my favourite of the tartan pieces. There are so many options! It would be cute with flats and a chunk knit. It would be cute with boots and a sparkly cami. I'd love to have a chance to style this bad boy!
