A Lifelong Love Of Tartan

I am pretty sure that I will be a fan of tartan all my life (as the self-explanatory title suggests - duh!). The love began aged 17 when I bought the most gorgeous vintage sixties tartan mini dress, which I wore non-stop throughout my first two years of uni and is sadly feeling rather tight these days. A few years ago I found a red knee-length kilt in a charity shop, at the time when tartan had its last revival in the fashion world, and I just had to have it. And last season I rocked a tartan lined Harrington jacket à la This Is England, which was the perfect way of injecting a bit of one of my favourite motifs into an outfit in an understated way.

With 90s grunge being one of the key trends this season, tartan is back, baby, and I could not be happier. Enter my latest tartan purchase - this adorable pinafore dress, which reminded me of the Vetements AW16 collection with its focus on grey Prince Of Wales checks and school girl style pleats. I was particularly drawn to this dress because of its more subtle, dark colour rather than opting for another bold and bright red piece similar to my current tartan collection. I also love the dropped waistline, which is charmingly unflattering on my hourglass shape and somehow, it just works.

Are you loving tartan this season? Or perhaps you are also a lifelong fan?

Je suis sûre que je serai fan du tartan toute ma vie. Mon amour de ce motif a commencé quand j'ai acheté une mini-robe tartan vintage magnifique à l'âge de 17 ans. J'ai beaucoup porté cette robe pendant l'université mais malheureusement elle est un peu serrée maintenant. Ensuite, j'ai trouvé un kilt rouge dans une friperie il y a quelques années - la dernière fois que du tartan est revenu à la mode - et je devais le prendre. Puis la saison dernière, j'ai porté une veste Harrington avec une doublure en motif tartan à la This Is England, qui était parfait pour ajouter un peu d'un de mes motifs préférés à une tenue mais dans une façon discrète. 

La tendance grunge 90s est super à la mode cette saison, c'est à dire que du tartan est de retour et j'en suis tellement contente. Voici mon nouvel achat du tartan - cette robe adorable qui m'avait fait penser à la collection automne-hiver 16 de Vêtements qui se concentre sur des carreaux gris de prince de Galles et des plissées du style écolière. J'étais attirée par cette robe grâce à sa couleur plus subtile et sombre par rapport aux pièces rouges vives que j'ai déjà dans ma collection de tartan. J'aime aussi la taille basse qui ne me flatte pas trop à cause de ma morphologie en huit mais je trouve qu'elle marche quand même.  

Vous aimes du tartan cette saison? Ou peut-être vous seriez toujours fan du tartan?
