An Unlikely Romance: Stripes and Tartan

Some great fashion combinations include stars and stripes, polka dots and stripes, but what about tartan and stripes… This is an unlikely pairing I’ve been curious to try for ages and I have to say, it actually works well in a quirky, Alexa Chung-esque, way. Although I usually deem tartan as a cold-season textile, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t wear it during the heat in the form of shorts (like me), or in a lighter fabric like silk. So this look has managed to tackle my fear of tartan whilst pairing it with an equally iconic print. What’s fearlessness to me? Experimenting with clashing prints.
