Reasons why fall is my favorite time of the year:

  • pumpkin¬†soup
  • Halloween costume parties
  • layering
  • tartan

When I mention these few things on a normal conversation, people often look at me weird. Don’t get me wrong, I love my drinks on the beach, but there is a charm attached to fall that I just can’t shake…

Of all things fall, however, tartan is my homeboy. We love to hang out on long afternoons at the library and feeling a little like in Harry Potter (a delusion I keep up often); we enjoy matching our looks with oxfords, and we like pulling some serious back-to-school outfit even when we have no school to go back to.

Also, tartan is like jeans, which means never out and never boring. You just need to know how to take it (and wear it!). Here are a few golden rules on how to wear tartan without looking like your grandma. Nobody knows why they work, but they do. Make tartan your best friends, it deserves it.

  1. Almost never go full tartan, unless you are trying to stage a Braveheart tribute.
  2. If you do decide to wear full tartan for reasons not related to cinema, at least balance it out with some boots.
  3. Any tartan hue is allowed, but a classic red or green is a classic red or green.
  4. When tartan is in the outfit, accessories should me monochromatic and minimal.
  5. When tartan is in the accessories, you got it, girl.
  6. A long tartan skirt is a bless from the sky and I will always compliment your outfit if I see you wearing one.
