Leaves are turning gold and red. Morning air is getting crisp. Fall is here–which means the Tartan Collection is back.
Tartan print is perfect for chilly weather. It calls to mind our coziest blankets and favorite flannels. Known for its intersecting lines and right angles, this print is a close relative to plaid. Our collection uses a classic color palette dominated by black, red, and teal, with a touch of gold to brighten it all up.
There are a ton of ways to wear this festive collection. Because it’s such a distinct print, we love letting it be the centerpiece of an outfit. So here are three of our favorite Tartan-inspired looks.
For a Holiday Party
For this 90s-inspired look, we went with the Domed Satchel
in red. Wear it with a black crop top that has a plunging neckline and loose-fit light-wash jeans. This combination will give you an undeniable grunge vibe. And if you really feel like committing to nostalgic style, don some frosted lipstick and dab a touch of white eyeliner in the corners of your eyes.
This satchel bag
comes with a black leather crossbody strap that’s actually removable. For this look, we recommend taking off the strap and carrying this bag by its rolled top handles.
For a Weekend Out
We went with the the Tartan Tote
(one of our artist's favorite tote bags for women
)in black for this casual look. It’s perfect for everything from running errands to traveling. Elements for this look are equal parts comfy and chic. On top is cropped hoodie layered under an oversized denim jacket. On the bottom, slightly loose-fit pants with a curved cut. Ankle booties, with a comfy insole for days spent on foot, finish off the outfit.
One thing to note is the muted color palette here. No matter what comfy elements you mix together for your day off, we really recommend sticking to neutrals. Let the tote’s plaid print do all the talking.
For a Date
For an understated and sophisticated look, we went with the Tartan Hobo
in navy. It’s a proper shoulder bag with a bold navy and teal plaid print, black Vacchetta leather trim, and gold-toned hardware. The hardware, like the stitching, provides a bright and polished touch to this otherwise deep and moody coloration.
This is a sleek look for a date night, work event, or even a holiday party. We love a statement coat in a neutral color like camel or tan. Throw yours on over a simple black dress, and step into a pair of black knee-high boots. Finish it off with this statement shoulder bag.
Of course, there are plenty of other ways to wear pieces from our best fall and winter collection. These are just our favorites. We hope you feel inspired to come up with your own looks. To get started, shop the Tartan Collection
