Who said that the tartan print can only be in the classic colors of red and black or beige and yellow [such as my look with the tartan dress, you can find it HERE!]? The tartan is a concept that can be interpreted as you want – okay okay, maybe now I’m exaggerating, I’ll end up saying that tartan is like a religion, haha! It’s just that this time I decided to interpret the tartan trend in its most elegant and feminine version. And pink.
Pink Tartan | A pink shaded checked blazer
I bought this checked blazer on sale and fell in love with it. It is heavy enough to be used as a jacket alone in the warmer seasons, or as a blazer or under a coat during the winter. It is super versatile: you can safely wear it at work, but it is also perfect for an aperitif look, given the vinyl details along the edges of the neck and pockets, which make it a fun and special item. The blazer was born by itself with a button at the waist, but I found this vinyl red belt that had the same tone of the blazer’s details, I had to match it. I wore it tight in the middle of the jacket, to mark the waist and create a more feminine and sensual look.
When the garments (whether they are outerwear, dresses or skirts) are too flashy or have important patterns, it is always better to combine neutral accessories to avoid the effect “did you get dressed in the dark?”. In fact, I have combined this checked blazer with accessories matching the duller colors, given the importance of its fantasy and color. I opted for the wine/burgundy shades, so that the blazer remained the protagonist and did not seem a bit “too much”. The gray dress highlights the tartan, and the handbag, the over-the-knee boots and the hat match the finish.
So, what do you think about the look? Do you like it? Have a nice day to all!
