So, it’s St Andrew’s Day this weekend – Sunday November 30. How are you going to celebrate the day of Scotland’s patron saint? With a dinner of haggis, neeps and tatties? Singing Scotland the Brave? What’s your St Andrew’s day style? Tartan?!
Okay, okay, it’s really predictable, and we Scots rarely wear tartan, blah blah. Actually, tartan is really nice. Or fashion’s take on tartan anyway. Which is regularly called plaid. And is nothing like real tartan really.
But well, we’re sticking with our take on St Andrew’s Day style for this week’s Weekly Wishlist. Tartan, plaid, check, whatever – you get our drift?
Now, I know where I will be this Sunday evening – on the couch, with a good old cup of tea and maybe a Tunnock’s caramel wafer or two. And how could I make that more Scottish? In a pair of fab tartan satin pyjamas from BHS (£25). That’s St Andrew’s Day style! Maybe a pair of tartan baffies too – that’s Scots for slippers, in case you didn’t know. Iris & Edie have a lovely cosy pair at Debenhams (£17.50).
GAP’s plaid nightie (24.95) is cute, but won’t keep you warm. However, New Look’s gorgeous deep red tartan boyfriend coat (£39.99) will beat the chill. A great favourite, and a simple way to add a bit of St Andrew’s Day style is with a scarf. We love this bold red one from JOY (£18). Also at JOY, how fantastic is this green and red tartan print pencil skirt? (£39).
If your St Andrew’s Day style is a little more subtle, guys, maybe this grey tartan style T-shirt (£12.99) from New Look is for you? Or a simple tartan tie? (£20, Debenhams).
If full-on tartan isn’t your style, girls, then New Look’s plaid/check skirt (£14.99) will give you St Andrew’s Day Style, subtly. Finally, it’s the day before December, so you might need some gloves, like a lovely red tartan pair from BHS (£9).
