Sporty Chic Tartan

Tartan has been so popular this fall that it’s becoming nearly impossible to find any left in stores- much to my frustration.  I really wanted a pair of slim tartan pants from J.Crew but they’re all gone- so sad I know.  Luckily, I found a substitute pair while desperately browsing the inter-webs.  They’re by Tommy Hilfiger and I think they’re just as cute as the J.Crew pair.

I love the idea of taking a traditional tartan pant and dressing it down by adding a slouchy black beanie and a cashmere sweater with an irreverent phrase on it.  Add black heels and a double breasted red coat for some glam.  It’s the perfect look for a family holiday party or a night out with friends.

1. Topshop Faux Fur Pompom Beanie- This is such a great price and the pompom just makes me smile. 2. Ray Ban Large Vintage Round Frame SunglassesThese remind me of my favorite Jackie O shades. 3. Visionary Wool-Cashmere Intarsia Sweater- Tell everyone how smart you are with this fun sweater. 4. Anne Klein Double- Breasted Pea Coat- Love this one. It has a definite Kate Middleton vibe. 5. Tommy Hilfiger Plaid Slim-Fit Trousers- Buy these.  They’re about the last pair of tartan pants left on the internet.

 Isn’t it such a chic look??!  Of course, leave it to blogger Blaire Eadie to create such a too cool for school vibe.  In my eyes, she can do no wrong on the style front and I always love how she gives traditional basics a bit of an edge.

Now, it’s off to run some last minute Christmas errands.  I’m so glad to be back to the blog and can’t wait to share more style and interior inspiration with you.  Happy Holidays!
