A tartan scarf is a pretty common accessory to sport as temps go down. Let us find out fresher ways to incorporate the classic scarf style into your autumn wardrobe.
Tartan is worn throughout the year. Its versatile print rendered in a multitude of color combos makes it superb for just about any season. Created from light to heavier materials, tartan scarves prove to be a year-long affair as well, made to fit into a variety of wardrobe options, serving as a stylish statement accessory along with a utilitarian purpose.
Thinking of refreshing your outfit via a tartan scarf and wonder how to do so without looking a tad predictable? As always, to the fashion imagery below for some really quick tartan scarf fashion tips:
Layer your tartan scarf over a striped top and boyfriend jeans with black boots for a print on print boost. Make sure the stripes are in black and white so that the colorful tartan scarf has the visual space to pop without appearing too busy.

Opt for an oversized scarf with a dual print effect. One side’s in black and white houndstooth and the other in red, blue and black tartan. Wear the scarf like another cool chunky outerwear over your textured crop top and high-waisted denim. Complete your vibrant look with a bold red pout.

Here’s another outfit idea featuring the cool reversible tartan/houndstooth scarf. The silhouette is much more relaxed and loose compared to the previous look. Tattered mom jeans in black, cozy knit and slouchy scarf ensure that maximum comfort is achieved even while on-the-go.

Use your tartan scarf as a statement piece to boost a dark khaki and black outfit color scheme with a pop of print and color. Edge it all up with the addition of a studded bag and combat boots. A septum ring is optional.

Coordinate your look around the classic colors of black, white, dark blue and burgundy. The scarf is the only printed piece of this chic ensemble.
Remember that knots in the way you style your scarf add heaviness on top. Opt to wear your scarf in a bandana style wrap with the pointy end hanging down the chest area to reduce the appearance of unnecessary bulkiness.

On a neutral outfit made of black, gray and white, a tartan scarf in earthy colors injects a visual interest that would otherwise be lacking without it.

“Beauty cannot be imprisoned in the lens of a camera. The images of beauty are a moment of its essence. Beauty cannot be displayed to evoke pleasure for all on a cinema screen. Those are just its imprints, mere illusions of its existence.” — Faraaz Kazi
