Can tartan be reinvented?

To be honest, not so long ago, if I saw a tartan skirt in a shop I would run a mile. This was due to the fact that for me tartan is usually associated with middle aged men in kilts. Recently however tartan has been reinvented thanks to many celebs and designers. So (you probably know what's coming next) here's how to wear tartan this autumn/winter.

Tartan is now a key element in grunge style. Be careful to keep your look laid back and it's a good idea to team your outfit with some doc martins or chunky gladiator sandals like these ones.

If you prefer safer styles then go for the 'tie something around your waist' trend. This works amazingly with tartan and is one of the main street styles of 2013.

Why not go for a more preppy look by adding cosy knits, loafers or a peter pan collar.

Or maybe you could find your inner cowgirl and go for a simple tartan shirt.
