A cooler side of plaid. Don’t be afraid to use this traditional pattern in less traditional colors. Also, don’t be afraid to mix different types of tartans, especially when they are in similar color families–unless you are actually trying to represent your clan, in which case, you can find your tartan here. :)

I love the dress in the third row of pictures. Plaid is so manly and ruffles are so feminine.

The multicoloured tartan shawl looks great!! The pink and yellows go great with the greens and blues!
