Today it’s all about how to wear Tartan or if you like Plaid.
Tartan and Tan
Tunu says: Tartan is a criss crossed horizontal and vertical pattern in multiple colors. Tartan originated in woven wool thus automatically making it an Autumn/winter trend. However, they are now made in many other different materials suitable for any season!
Tan is a neutral color shade, also very common in fall. it tones down strong color shades and gives a balanced outlook.
Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland because of the Scottish kilts but maybe not in Africa. The one and only thing that rings a bell when it comes to this beautiful print is the Maasai shuka.
Tartan and Denim
Tunu says: The rich tartan prints should form part of your transitional style this season. Its a print that can adopt to any look with so many colors and fabrics, there is always a tartan to go with any outfit and for any season.
