Top ten trends for the new season

Autumn/winter 2008-09 fashion trends: tartan

 


 
 
Checks are making a huge comeback, and this autumn's key trend is Scottish tartan (it was all over at the D&G catwalk shows). From tartan coats to scarves, skirts to bags, there's be no escaping it this season.  

How to wear it
A word of caution: tartan is an imposing print, so don't go OTT. One of the best ways to flaunt your taste for tartan is with accessories (but not too many!). If you want to take the trend to the next level, wear one tartan piece such as a dress or jacket and team with classic colours like black or grey.
