But then I did notice a very nice pic of Victoria Beckham wearing a tartan mini skirt and my faith was restored - tartan can look good if worn/styled correctly.

The photo of VB is uncanny (to me) because in 1993/94 I had a red tartan mini kilt that I used to wear with black heels and a slouchy jumper - just call me a fashionista why don't you ?!
How to wear tartan? My one piece of advice is "do not over do it"! I would treat tartan as I do animal print - LESS IS MORE. So pick one statement item of tartan and the rest is plain/normal.
I am kicking myself that I got rid of the little red skirt I had 20 years but here is a little collection of things that have cuaght my eye in the high street today.
ASOS Tartan Dress £22
New Look £17.99
ASOS Skater Skirt in Tartan Check £16
Own The Runway Tartan Dress £14.99
I would wear all of these with simple light round or v-neck jumper, tights or tanned legs and shoe boots as VB has done here - I love the look so much - I think I might be the last navy skirt, it's gorgeous!
What do you think? Will you embrace the tartan trend? How will you wear it?
