The word Tartan does one of two things to me I either gain a small grimace or a large smile. Tartan is known to be worn by a true, obviously hunky, Scotsman in a large gust of wind (cue large smile) but also heavy punk rockers with way too much eyeliner (cue grimace). In all honesty I don't think either of these looks would suit me. This season however saw designers giving Tartan a new lease of life, smart grunge with a hint of the Scots. If like me the thought of this still scares you a little here's a few key pieces to be thrown in to your wardrobe and accessories draw. Tartan doesn't need to be worn from head to toe unless your daring enough. Try a bracelet here, a bag there maybe even a small skirt.
