Tartan army


This a look that I just completely fell in love with for autumn. The tartan dress is such a good look for this time of year but the muted colours keeping it dark mean that it doesn't stand out too much and just looks perfect for this time of year!
The dress is from Mango (all linked below) so is therefore not too expensive and it is the nicest tartan dress I have seen recently. The hype over tartan has died down a little bit now thank goodness so you wont look like a sheep wearing this print now, and the a line cut of the dress makes it perfect for any shape. Paired with a simple pair of black tights and army boots it cuts off the girly edge and gives it a more street style everyday comfortable but still killing it look. 

The black parka goes with the black boots but any kind of black coat would look good with this dress and boot combo, a tailored longer coat would give it a slightly different clean cut look but it depends what your personal style is! Even go wild and wear a red coat with it if it takes your fancy, but my personal preference is to keep it nice and dark. I would wear this with my long waterfall coat that ties in at the waist. 

When it comes to accessories simple was the best way to go in my mind. Just a plain messenger bag makes it easy on everyday but added with a thick black or dark tartan scarf would bring it into the more winter months we are heading into alongside some warm gloves or mittens. This is just a super sweet look for the autumn and Christmas time and would look fab walking around the Christmas markets!!
