Inspired by Alexander McQueen, tartan has made it through the ages and it is still very trendy this season. For the holidays, you can wear it with on a little short-sleeved dress, a knee-length skirt or in accessories which you can then match with more neutral colours. For men, tartan can be worn on a jacket or overcoat. This is an easy way to add color to a suit while remaining elegant.
In men's fashion, the hipster chic look is very present. To wear it well, match it with a large wool sweater and a plaid shirt. Fitted jeans and short boots will then complete the look. For the women, the same elements can be used; sweaters and knits, plaid shirts and riding boots. The secret is in the overlay design to create a relaxed, but chic, look.
