A fail-proof way of spicing up your fall and winter ensembles is by wearing the coveted and much-loved tartan pants. Whether your style is preppy or grungy, this piece deserves a room in your wardrobe. So, get started in learning how to style a pair for this season and the next from the gorgeous and fashionable bloggers below.
1. Tartan pants can be effortlessly teamed up with a knitted sweater and a pair of oxfords.
It has the right touch of preppy, don’t you agree? Marta from the Dear Diary Fashion blog shows us how to do it. She mixed up her red tartan pants with a mustard yellow sweater and capped off the preppy look with a pair of oxford shoes.
2. Toughen it up with a leather jacket.
It’s the leather jacket season once again! Why not combine these two timeless trends (leather and tartan) together? It gives any look some extra edge to it. Marianela from Marilyn’s Closet wore hers with a cute ribbed leather jacket and a button-down top. But she kept it feminine with a pair of pumps.
3. Wear it with a band shirt and a blazer.
Inject the cool factor to your ensemble by wearing it with a graphic-printed shirt and a basic black blazer like what Rocio of La Percha did. It’s the perfect outfit to wear when you are feeling lazy but still want to look like a million dollars.
4. You can also pair it with a long vest and a shirt.
If it isn’t that cold, a shirt with a long vest will do the trick. You can substitute the shirt with a fitted pullover when the days turn colder. My Showroom‘s Priscila put together an effortless outfit capped off by a pair of pants and sunnies.
5. Wear a collared top underneath your sweater and match it with your pants.
Here’s another preppy outfit. Tatyana, who has a blog called Secret Little Stars and who actually hails from the origin of the print, Scotland, rocked a red sweater with a white collared top underneath. We also love her amazing kicks!
6. Go for a pair of slouchy tartan pants, and keep the look relaxed with a printed shirt.
We chanced upon Kelli’s Kelli Murray, and we think her shirt and slouchy pants combo is tres chic! It’s the kind of outfit that won’t bother you whether you are out shopping or having a get-together with friends.
