Casual Weekend Tartan

Tartan print is back with a bang! Maybe it’s because of hipsters with the casual cool look? Or maybe it’s just because it’s so damn easy to style? Either way, I love it and glad that there are plenty of tartan, plaid, flannelette and check prints around this season.

The trick to wearing any one of these prints is in not making it look grandma-ish or like pjs. So if you are new to wearing this print, definitely don’t go for the all tartan look. I would say the best way to style tartan, plaid, check or flannelette is in a casual outfit, for example with jeans.

This is where my photos come in. I hope the below photos show you a classy and stylish way to casually wear this print.

When I saw this tartan flannelette shirt on http://www.showpo.com I knew I had to purchase it. It’s a great combination of colours: bright red, navy blue and white. These three colours can be styled easily – you can mix and match it with colours in that palette, as well as other neutrals such as black, grey and even beige. It can also work with silver and gold too.

I also purchased the jeans at the same time that I purchased the shirt. I really needed some new black jeans and it’s so hard to find jeans at the moment that aren’t the ripped denim style! So I jumped on purchasing these jeans as soon as I saw them.

At first I felt a bit wary about buying jeans online without trying them on first, but Showpo use this new Touch Payment system which means you can buy now, pay later. I can pay anywhere up to 16 days after ordering them, with the option of returning the item or even extending the due date for the payment of the clothes.That means that if the jeans didn’t fit, I could return them without having to worry about the hassle of waiting for a refund.

These jeans turned out to fit me perfectly and I’ve pretty much been living in them ever since! The tartan shirt has also had a few wears since purchase.

I recently wore the combination of the shirt and jeans tartan for some casual weekend activities. I did feel a little bit hipster in my tartan shirt and skinny jeans ensemble. But I kept it girly with my beaded necklace, my felt hat and ballet flats.
