As we delve into the fall season, we embrace the historically popular, ever-fashionable tartan. Originating from Scotland, the tartan print has always offered a sense of rich culture and sophistication. Whether the print is worn as a subtle accessory for one’s outfit or featured as a statement piece, this trend has encapsulated the runways this season. And let’s not forget there is something to be said for a print that was so commonly sported by the late, much-respected Alexander McQueen.
