This tenacious trend has enjoyed its fair share of the limelight in the past, but now tartan is back and bigger than ever. Originating in Scotland, tartan started life as the material of a Scotsman’s kilt but by the 1970’s it had become an integral part of punk fashion and a symbol of anti-establishment.
Tartan patterns are traditionally red, blue and white in colour but there are many variations available. Pay homage to the punk scene with a pleated tartan skirt, head turning leggings or a simple hair accessory.
When we think of autumn colour trends, pale pink is an unlikely contender, however this is the hotly-tipped colour which graced a large proportion of the catwalks at London Fashion Week and every fashion magazine within a 5,000 mile radius.
Perhaps one of the biggest avenues this ultra-feminine trend is going down is that of the winter coat, whether that be wool blend, swing boyfriend or oversized style, every fashion house worth their salt is producing at least one powder pink coat this season. Another way to channel the trend is through a statement handbag such as the Fiorelli Hope in Dusky Pink or a subtle piece of jewellery, perhaps a pair of Pink Drop Earrings.
Fed up of purchasing arm candy which falls at the first hurdle? If we had a penny for every time we've purchased a beautiful accessory only for it to show detrimental signs of wear and tear after one or two uses, well, we’d be rich!
An investment handbag is a staple piece which will last through the ages and has a timeless appeal, no matter what’s in for ‘this season’. When it comes to choosing an investment handbag, quality and longevity are both important factors to consider, a classic leather style will never go out of fashion, like the Marla Medium Grab in black croc for instance. Above all, choose a handbag which you will want to use time and time again, otherwise your high quality purchase could end up gathering dust in a cupboard.
