These tartan plaid women’s clothing styles make for the most festive fashion for Fall through Christmas. I like to call fashion like this “Home Alone chic” and I usually add at least one new tartan plaid women’s clothing item to my very preppy, classic and traditional wardrobe each holiday season.
This post answers what tartan plaid is, tells you where to buy tartan plaid women’s clothing, highlights some featured picks and gives you even more options to shop.
What is tartan plaid?
Tartan is, historically, Scottish patterned cloth consisting of crisscrossed, horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colors designed by the local region. The weaving technique forms visible diagonal lines, repeating vertically and horizontally in a distinctive pattern of squares and lines.
In North America, it is known as tartan plaid and worn during the Christmas season.

Although it was *so* hard to choose favorites, as there are so many gorgeous tartan plaid women’s clothing styles this year, below are some of my favorite tartan plaid women’s clothing styles.
The colors and details of this Vineyard Vines dress are absolute perfection! It’s a great modern take on traditional tartan plaid.
I love the blue tones in this simple Talbots skirt, and how it can be dressed up or down.
These J. Crew wool pants ooze traditional 80s and 90s prep style.
I have this button-down shirt from J. Crew from the previous year, and I love how the ruffled collar and cuffs both feminize the look and peak out when layered.
The pink tones in this J. Crew blazer make a major statement and scream, “I’m here and I’m ready for Christmas!”
This quilted J. Crew jacket makes a statement, yet isn’t too bold. It would look great with jeans and canvas sneakers.
This midi dress is great for a dressy occasion. I would wear it with heels and a velvet blazer.
Draper James makes the most feminine and modest cocktail dresses, and I especially love how the pattern on this one is a bit muted.
I purchased this J. Crew Factory top for myself, and I plan on wearing it with velvet leggings and point black sheer flats.
Pants are a great way to make a statement in tartan plaid. I have a pair similar to these, and I love wearing them with an oatmeal or black sweater and pointy loafers.
I adore this maxi skirt for a dressy look for all ages. I think it would look best with a black fitted turtleneck or a dressy white button-down oxford shirt.
Long Sleeve Dress
I’m drooling over this long sleeve J. Crew dress and how great it would look with knee high boots with a skinny heel.
I’ve seen this J. Crew Factory shirt dress all over Instagram this year, and I think it would look perfect on holiday photos!
This J. Crew sweater is SO cozy looking. I’d love to pair it with my gold glitter pointy flats.
It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite tartan plaid shoe, but these J. Crew heels just LOOK like Christmas. Pair them with neutrals so they *POP*!
