Fashion I Micro-Trends – The Kilt

The kilt, a fashion favourite for autumn/winter, is back and this time round it comes with an innovative twist. Still sporting the traditional buckles and pleats in most cases, this staple skirt has been chopped and neatened for a modern take.

One of the most prominent trends this season, enforced by high street stores such as Topshop and Monsoon is the preppy school girl look. If you’re a fan of a fluffy jumper and a pastel colour scheme then this is the season for you.

Designers such as Celine, Louis Vuitton and Chanel wooed us with traditional woollen numbers in lustrous clan tartans, whereas others such as Dolce and Gabbana chose a monochrome palette for their menswear collection.

Whether you’re feeling patriotic or nostalgic, this season boasted an array of options for everybody. A short Topshop version teamed with a peter pan collared blouse and a fluffy jumper is preppy perfect. For the more daring, a jewel coloured midi version, teamed with a buckle-ridden boot is just as on trend. We’re just a wee bit excited about it. Geddit?

We’re loving the Monsoon number, to bag this item simply visit:,mon_1.11/4130100818
