Tartan Shift Dress - In Love With Fashion // Tartan Pinafore Dress - Miss Selfridge // Tartan Scarf - New Look // Tartan Dress - Dorothy Perkins

This A/W, the biggest trend around has got to be tartan. Everywhere I turn, I'm seeing tartan prints and more and more things I want to get my mitts on. Tartan was never a trend I thought I'd dip my toes into but since buying a tartan dress from Primark (which I'll be featuring in an ootd post soon), I've become a bit obsessed and have fallen head over heels for all things tartan! Wow, can I say tartan one more time? I thought I'd show you a few things I'm currently lusting after as it might give you a bit of inspiration if you want to add some tartan to your wardrobe and don't  know where to start.

First up is this shift dress from In Love with Fashion. I absolutely love this website (seriously, I want everything they stock) and this shift dress is one of them. I really love shift dresses as they're so easy to wear and hide a multitude of sins. If you're conscious of your stomach/hips or bum area, this is the style to go for. It will skim the body nicely and paired with some thick tights, ankle boots and a snuggly coat, it will make the perfect winter outfit. 

Next up is this pinafore from Miss Selfridge and its probably the most daring piece of the bunch I've picked but I love it nonetheless - its so cute! I think this would look amazing paired with a black t-shirt, a long sleeved top or even a blouse. The amount of different looks I could create with this are endless and I think it would work well in both the daytime and evening. Such a versatile piece and I think my wardrobe needs this in it.

Next up is this super cute tartan scarf from New Look which is a great piece to go for if you want to incorporate some tartan into your wardrobe but aren't brave enough to wear a piece of tartan clothing. I actually spotted a scarf similar to this in Primark a couple of months ago and I'm now kicking myself for not getting it because when I went back they were all gone. Typical! This one from New Look is just as lovely though and I don't mind paying a couple of pounds extra for something that will keep me snug throughout the winter months.

Lastly is this dress from Dorothy Perkins and I think this is my favourite of the bunch. I absolutely love the fitted style and the subtle tartan print. I think this would look absolutely gorgeous in the evening or even for work and again its a great one to go for if you're a bit scared of the tartan trend as it isn't quite so in your face. Unfortunately this is sold out in my size on the Dorothy Perkins website (one again - so blimmin typical!) but I'm going to have to go and hunt it down in store because I absolutely love it!

So there we have it, a few tartan bits and pieces I'm hoping to get my mitts on. Writing this post has made me want all of them even more than I did before. Oops, sorry bank card - I know you must hate me!

Do you like the tartan trend? What do you think of the items I've picked?

Lots of Love,
