Every since I fell in love with the Bay City Rollers circa 1975 I’ve had a soft spot for tartan.

Which is good this year, because there’s a lot going round and I am a bit of it for myself.

Take this shirt from Zara.  Love the unexpected draping with the workman like feel of the plaid.  Makes for a perfect juxtaposition that lets this baby work day and night.  Mine has, many times and I have to admit I’ve felt as good in this as any of my more ‘designer’ tops.

So my recommendation on this little seasonal buzz – be like a lumberjack and get plaid.
