Get Kilted Out With Autumn’s Most Daring Trend

Think less Scottish Highlands, more releasing your inner punk. Here’s how to (quite literally) rock the new season’s tartan prints.

If the mere mention of tartan makes you shudder, then think again. No longer exclusive to the under-10s and men in kilts, these pieces are perfect for injecting a shot of confidence, sexiness and sophistication into your autumn wardrobe.
