Hey guys hope your all well and enjoying your weekend, here is another outfit post I want to share with you and its Tartan, one of my second favourite ongoing trends this year. I was hoping to post various outfits featuring this trend but unfortunately these are the only tartan items I currently own, so I couldn’t really do it, but Heyhoo.  There are number of ways and matches that one can pull off this ongoing trend even just a simple scarf can really complement your outfit. The following that I am wearing is one of the matching styles that I particularly like and and I feel comfortable with, I grabbed this up during the river island sale. While there isn’t a major contrast of colour it really suits and fits in well with this time of the year especially its autumn coming to winter. Through my analysis from various shops I realised the most popular colour in tartan is red, so when I come across this teal  green, I was really impressed, it  blends so well  with various colours, it’s amazing. While styling this outfit I thought to go all teal green and the only top I had in this colour was this turtle neck top. I repeat TURTLE NECK, for many years I have questioned my dislike towards turtle necks and refused to wear them. I think it’s because every time I wore them I felt suffocated and claustrophobic  and also it tended to make my  face look huge, and let’s face it I don’t  have the world’s longest neck and therefore I resisted them for many years. However  I have to say that my hatred towards them has changed, because I didn’t feel uncomfortable in anyway, so I was pretty Impressed. For shoes, I thought these red velvet shoes from Zara where a great match because it complimented the outfit as a whole. 
RiverIsland has some great tartan iteams guys CHECK HERE!!!

****What do guys think..? Thank you all for your lovely Comments, I Hope you all have a  Lovely Weekend, Take care! Claudia  xx
