As you can probably tell, this week on the blog it’s all about tartan. It’s set to be one of this season’s key trends, pulling in the punk and grunge trends to the fashion forefront. While there are some to-die-for tartan pieces at both McQueen and Westwood, a high street budget can’t stretch to such price tags. But luckily, today I’m on hand to bring you the three best tartan pieces (budget) money can buy. If there’s one way to rock tartan this autumn/winter it’s in midi and maxi form, for a super grungy, ’90s spin on a kilt. I’ve found three gorgeous tartan midis and maxis that deserve your absolute undivided attention.
Today’s first skirt is also today’s first of two pieces from Each To Their Own, which is a great new brand I read about recently. As soon as I saw their on-trend and on-price pieces, I knew I had to feature them, and these skirts are the perfect opportunity to show you the designer-look for less pieces they have on offer. This skirt looks way more high-end than the £75 price tag would suggest. It’s still an investment, but this is one you’ll wear and wear as tartan never truly goes out of style! You can pick up this gorgeous piece here.
The cheapest of today’s skirts is from Boohoo and is just £20. This pleated midi will look amazing with oversized knits and Dr Martens to really add to the grungy vibe. Throw on a rucksack and an oversized jacket and you’re good to go. If you’re not sure if investing £75 on the tartan trend is for you, this £20 alternative is a good way of trying out the trend without being out of pocket. For any evening ‘dos you have coming up, teaming this with a crop top is a great way of showing a sliver of skin without flashing too much flesh, for a more modern take on sexy. You can pick this skirt up from Boohoo here.
Lastly today is the second skirt from Each To Their Own, and this one is a lot darker and grungier than the first. Again, with Dr Martens or an alternative pair of stompy boots, with a biker jacket and chunky knit, this could look seriously cool and unexpected. The gorgeous shape with added side-split makes it feminine, but the swathes of fabric add extra interest, and there’s definitely not many well-made pieces like this around at the moment. If you’re willing to spend a little more on your winterwear this year than you typically would, this is wear I’d spend my money. You can pick up this £75 Each To Their Own skirt here.
