Throughout its storied sartorial history, tartan has taken on a multitude of forms. The timeless pattern has roots in ancient Scotland (after all, Braveheart's William Wallace went to battle wearing a kilt), but over time, it also became synonymous with movements from punk to grunge (Kurt Cobain's uniform often consisted of a tartan flannel shirt). With undertones both classic and subversive, tartan's proved that it's one of the most versatile and enduring patterns in fashion. Read on to see how a number of stylesetters are wearing tartan now, and how you can get their look today. Don't forget to check out our on-trend tartan picks too!On The Runway

A classic red tartan shirt has an English (and Scottish) heritage charm. Choose a mini style to avoid looking frumpy and team it with black tights for a Sixties feel or biker boots for a nod to Eighties punk.

This boyfriend shirt is yet another tartan addition to my wardrobe. I really need to concentrate on getting things that are non-tartan and non-fluffy.

Mixing boyish pieces with feminine additions (like gladiators) creates an unexpected combination that totally works in my opinion! I think it’s so funny that there are various styles of jean now that work and are even considered trendy. When I was in high school, anything other than flared or boot leg jeans was considered old fashioned. Now, I consider the cut and wash more of a personal preference, whether you want to wear skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, high-waisted jeans, wide leg jeans, or anything else you can come up with and style appropriately.

The boyfriend jean has become one of my favorite types of jean style, right after skinny jeans as you can tell from previous posts! The baggy denim style is meant to give off a relaxed vibe, as though you just woke up, rolled out of bed, and grabbed a pair of your man’s most comfortable jeans. As casual as they are, I don’t consider boyfriend jeans very easy
to style and for the longest time, I didn’t think they were particularly stylish. I think depending how you put together the look, it can be a risk! Searching for just the right ones that are baggy but figure-flattering at the same time can be a challenge. Once you find the right pair that works for you, there are endless ways you can wear the look.

I like a jean that is relaxed but still fitted so it creates the look of borrowing something from my man, without actually looking like a man. The jeans look sexy and elegant when styled a ton of different ways, from a plain white T-shirt to a collared shirt. The look you create changes drastically with the type of shoes you wear, from high-heels to flats  for a more casual look. 
A great way to dress up a pair of boyfriend jeans with Tartan  is to add a backpack and a pair of geeky's;By the way they are new! :)
What are some other ways you have styled Tartan?

10 Things A women MUST have in her Bag!

Handbags have been getting bigger and bigger it seems as the years roll on. A women's purse is her soul mate. Women are carrying bigger bags to make a bigger statement.  Women are magicians when it comes to putting their bags together.  Remember Hermione and her undetectable extension charm.  Seriously, ask a group of  women for something random, and I guarantee, at least one of them will have what you’re looking for!  

  1. Wallet. Always carry your wallet (incl. Driver’s License, Debit/Credit Cards, Cash, etc.).
  2. Phone. Obviously because you’ll feel naked without it.
  3. Car Keys/Metro card. Well, you’re not going to get too far without it.
  4. Lip Gloss/Chapstick.  Especially in the winter time, chapped lips can be a buzz kill. Keep your lips hydrated with a chapstick with moisturizer.
  5. Sunglasses.  So you stayed up late watching reruns of Project Runway and overslept your alarm. Sunglasses can hide those bags under your eyes and keep you fashionable at the same time!
  6. Pen & Paper.  Always come prepared with a pen & paper. You never know you might run into a celebrity and need something to get their autograph on! 
  7. Water Bottle: Remember the last time your dermatologist asked you to have 10-12 glasses of water a day for a clear skin?Moreover, what if you are really thristy and you can't find ocean clean water.
  8. Gum/Mints. Always great to carry, in case the luncheon you’ve just attended was a menu littered with garlic and onion.
  9. Aspirin. That sudden headache during an important date with your hot work boyfriend could turn into a nightmare if y
  10. Hair Accessories.  This could include a brush, hair ties, bobby pins, etc.  You never know where life will take you, where you’ll be or who you’ll meet, so you must look your best at all time!
