If you only associate tartan pleated skirts with that all too familiar private school girls look, you may want to ramp it up a bit. A tartan pleated skirt can be worn well into your twenties as well, and depending on how you balance out the rest of your wardrobe, you can look quite elegant with a dress shirt and flat Mary Jane shoes. Or you can go totally casual by untucking your shirt and wearing black tights underneath.

You don’t have to be Scottish to love the look and design of a tartan blazer. Classy and extremely traditional, tartan can be matched with dress pants, casual slacks and of course, the mainstay of Scottish traditional dress, the Kilt. You can also buy tartan socks, shirts, jackets, ties and even head bands in a wide variety of colors, to complement just about any fashion statement you’re willing to make.
