How about A Kilt?

Subtle tartans or bold plaids. A perfect partner to add to your list that will fit in so well with other pieces described above.

Shopping for a kilt.

On a recent visit to Windsor, just opposite Windsor Castle (The Queen was not in residence), we found The Edinburgh Woollen Mill Shop

I had already looked online for a kilt, but decided that I really needed to try one on. Plus, there are so many variations in colours from the bold and vivid to the soft and warm.

I chose a below knee kilt that I can wear with a variety of tops and accessories. An added bonus – a reduced price.

Whether worn with flats, Heels, ankle boots or riding boots. Kilts are so stylish

Hunting bling Style.

Sweater with back tie detail, Banana Republic. Black Suede and Leather Riding Boots Anne Klein


Highland Fling style.

White shirt Marks and Spencer online, Shoes Clarks. Handbag Aspinal of London. Necklace Park Lane Jewelry. Velvet scarf/shawl vintage!


Fashion Statement Style.

Jacket Ann Taylor, Shoulder bag ASOS, Ladies Tweeds cap Edinburgh Woollen Mill. Suede Mink Boots Marks and Spencer

I chose this colour kilt as I was drawn to the muted colours. What could I pair it with that I already had in my closet?.

Lavender, grey/green, black and white are very sophisticated and warm colours that suit my style. So versatile and very appealing on the eye.

The clothes mentioned above that I paired in these photographs I have had in my closet a long time. Classic pieces that don’t date if treated with respect.

Which is your favourite outfit?
