Last Friday was St Andrew’s Day so, at the risk of being serenaded with “Donald where’s your troosers” all day, I took the plunge and proudly donned my Black Watch tartan trousers as a sartorial nod to my patron saint. I tweeted about them and they got a great response so I thought I would share them on the wee blog too.

On Friday I wore the trews with a black peplum top (as a bit more of a tailored look for work) however this weekend I wanted to play up the vintage vibe with a more casual ensemble. The tapered cigarette style of the trousers and check pattern is reminiscent of ‘sixties Mod style, so I styled them with a retro ‘sixties Aran knit, peter pan collar blouse and leather jacket. A cross between a Mod and a ‘sixties schoolgirl perhaps?!

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. How would you wear tartan trousers?

I wore this outfit for a trip to a very Christmassy Somerset House to see the Valentino retrospective this weekend… more on that soon!
