Autumn/Winter 2013 Trend | Tartan

Today I’ve decided to focus on a big trend that everyone seems to be wearing these days, tartan! All things plaid and tartan seem to be staple pieces for a lot of people this season. I was recently in Galway and I picked up this tartan blouse in New Look for around €25. I feel it is a bit different to the majority of plaid shirts out there at the moment; this is mainly down to its material. It’s not your regular cotton shirt but instead it is made of chiffon which feels so so soft on your skin while being very airy and breathable at the same time. I’ve teamed it with grey acid wash jeans from Penneys for a more causal and comfy college look.

Due to the fact it’s a bit cold these days I wanted to add a bit of warmth to this outfit so I added this blazer/cardigan type jacket that I got in River Island. I love this jacket so much! The shape is a bit different; it’s kind of like a cape. I’ve dressed it down here, but you can add it to any outfit to create a varying degree of looks. I find myself wearing it with everything from dresses and skirts for a bit dressier look to jeans for a more casual look like the one here. Overall, it was a great investment and a staple addition to my wardrobe for the Autumn/Winter season.

I got my boots last year in Bershka, they were only about €30 in the sale and ever since I’ve worn them to death. They are ankle height biker type boots that go with nearly everything I am wearing this winter.
