The perfect Scottish tartan dress
The word ‘tartan’ comes from the Scottish Gaelic word tarsainnmeaning ‘across’. This refers to the signature criss-cross pattern of the print, which differs in specific style and colour depending on the clan it originates from. Tartan textiles and clothing are carefully constructed in a very specific way, reflecting the traditional methods that have been used in Scotland for centuries.
Nowadays, tartan is considered one of the most luxurious and bold patterns available. Prints can be modified and altered to produce very different effects, making it a very versatile option as well. Every tartan dress in our collection is designed to help you look and feel incredible.
How to style your tartan dress
Whether you opt for a red or a blue tartan dress; a playful design or an elegant one, there’s no doubting the fact that a tartan dress is a statement piece. Our Tartan Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress is a great example of this, being a powerful yet elegant piece which can easily make the day to night transition. Darker tartans that make use of navy and deep greens give off a more subdued, dramatic aura which really packs a punch.
Because tartan dresses make such a statement on their own, you don’t need a whole army of accessories in order to complete your outfit. Pairing your dress with a simple pair of heels will allow the magic of the gown to speak for itself.
