These tartan clothes for women make for the most festive fashion from Fall through Christmas. I like to call fashion like this “Home Alone chic,” and I usually add at least one new piece of tartan clothing to my very preppy, classic, and traditional wardrobe each holiday season.
This post answers what tartan plaid is, tells you where to buy tartan clothes for women, highlights some featured picks, and gives you even more options to shop.
Tartan Plaid: Explained
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.
