Styling Tartan For Autumn | Trend Files

Originally posted on

Over the past few years I have come to the conclusion that the ultimate representation of Autumn fashion for me is a tartan print. The traditional Scottish pattern appeals to me because of it's classic print yet it can have such dimension with all the different colours, geometrics and styles that are available when wanting to wear the trend. I have built up a little (but rapidly growing) collection of checked scarves over the past couple of years, and I do find them to be the must-have autumn staple. 

This Barbour scarf* is no exception, being made of 100% lambswool it is so cozy, soft and exceptional quality for the cost. Likewise I think the colour is a little more unique in contrast to a classic red tartan print; the muted shade makes it so easy to pair with my entire Autumn wardrobe. There are a variety of other colours available too which can be viewed here. When styling tartan I choose to go for block colours rather then patterns for the rest of my outfit, yet playing on texture makes the look much more interesting. I draped the scarf over my crew-neck rose mohair jumper and added edge with some ripped denim jeans and a pair of brown brogues. This is definitely one of my go-to A/W Outfits because I just find that the tartan print is so bold that it pulls together any simple outfit and not to mention, adds an abundance of warmth for the chilly British Autumn. 

What is your favourite Autumn trend or pattern to wear?

Miranda Kerr H&M Campaign

If you have been reading my Blog for a while, you would know about my love for Miranda Kerr - her style is so classic and she is someone I always look at when in need of fashion inspiration. Likewise I really admire her ethics and her passion for health and fitness: You can only imagine my delight when H&M announced her as the new face for their Spring campaign!

The colour palette is the ultimate Spring mix with lights pastels whilst the addition of greys and blacks makes the items far easier to transition into the warmer weather. The light blush shades and whites just look so clean and crisp and are definitely the kind of colours I'm drawn to in the Spring.

What also caught my attention is the structure of the items in the collection. The pink skirt pictured above has such prominent pleats and the floral dress has some peplum detailing around the neckline; both give the garments that added formality whilst some of the other items on offer are much more casual. - For me, I therefore think that the looks are so much more wearable, especially for those College days where you want to dress up a little more. Not keen on skipping the sweatpants for school? The speckled grey trousers look the perfect option for a simple and effortless outfit, not to mention the poly-cotton blend looks ultra comfy!

 I'm a huge girly girl at heart so these three items definitely caught my eye from the selection. I hope to get my hands on a couple of them before they sell out, but whilst I wait I'll be watching the campaign's video HERE.

What's you opinion of Miranda Kerr being the latest face of H&M?

Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2014

The saturated colours, vast varieties of fabrics and extravagant prints are a few of the reasons why the Miu Miu S/S 14 collection caught my eye. The blend of pastel colours and darker accents really emphasis the unconventional look that I love in Miu Miu Designs and remind me why I always look forward to seeing the newest releases from the brand.

The campaign made me love the collection even more - showcasing female actors wearing the designs with a rather whimsical styling - makeup and all. Elle Fanning are Kate Olsen are two of my favourite stars of the moment so this campaign will always remain iconic in my mind.

Any S/S14 campaigns that you've seen and loved?
