The TLC guide to A/W trends – part one: T is for Tartan

As winter gets ever closer, we thought we’d give you an excuse to escape the cold and head to the shops (or hide away at home with your laptop) and put together a stylish winter wardrobe.

So we called on the talents of Karen Skagerlind from Wardrobe Wand to pick out her top three key A/W 2013 trends. And here’s the first – tartan!

T is for Tartan

I love this coloured tartan skirt from ASOS. Add black opaque tights, flat ankle boots and an on trend polo neck for an easy autumn outfit. For a casual look wear this tartan shirt from New Look open layered over a silk blend vest with skinny grey jeans and black boots.

Another really easy way to inject some on-trend tartan into your wardrobe is with accessories. This bright red scarf from Urban Outfitters is sure to cheer up even the dullest wintry morning.
