We have the whole winter to wear tartan jackets Get the look.

February 2, 2021

If you are tired of wearing your black and grey coats all winter and are looking for an option to your down-coats, we have the answer for you. Consider wearing cosy tartan jackets like our favourite influencers are doing this winter in Gstaad, London, Copenhagen and New York. As we can see on Instagram, the thick woollen jackets and poncho-like capes are not only warm but also very stylish. Additionally, plaid jackets infuse your winter looks with a dose of ’90s grunge and ’70s punk mixed with the chic British countryside style. Read more about it here.

Besides being perfect for the whole winter, tartan jackets and capes make great transitional outwear. Additionally, there are so many different ways to wear tartan. For example, the timeless outwear piece elevates jeans and sportswear. But you can also dress down tailored pieces by pairing them with thick plaid jackets that look almost as cosy as blankets.

These fashion-savvy women show how to wear chic tartan jackets in winter. Celia Rowlson-Hall, the American dancer, choreographer and film director, wears a winter classic, a plaid belted jacket. But her white denim and ankle boots with chunky soles make the look more contemporary. Likewise, Lauren Santo Domingo, the stylish influencepreneur and co-founder of Moda Operandi, balances a voluminous kimono-like tartan jacket with slim pants and heels.

Heavy-duty tartan jackets that look like flannel shirts give a casual and relaxed vibe to elevated outfits. Additionally, they are comfy pieces to wear at home or run errands. Bring a pop of colour with these plaid wool jackets that are perfect for winter and spring. You can go for bright, neon pieces like the fashion-forward Scandinavian girls during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Otherwise, choose a more discreet combination like grey and yellow, the Pantone colours for 2021.

Ponchos and capes to stand out from the crowd

Lastly, you can wear plaid capes instead of tartan jackets for dramatic winter looks. Wrap yourself in a warm oh-so-chic woollen cape. You can wear it as a poncho or with a belt like a Scottish heroine. The wearable outwear is incredibly versatile and looks beautiful, whether in town or the countryside.
