YES, I’m writing this because I loved the red tartan skirt that Kate wore yesterday — and so did many of you, so this is both a Reader Request post and a, er, Me Request post. Kate’s Emilia Wickstead skirt is currently sold out, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have options. As I noted yesterday, there are a LOT of good variations on this very festive, retro look on Etsy — it’s almost the best place to start, but you have to do some digging, of course, because the combo of red tartan + pleats can veer cheesy pretty easily. (I personally have a high tolerance for sartorial cheese, but your mileage may vary.) I love this one. And Etsy can also be a good source for vintage versions, like this fab Pendleton one — although I’ve also included a newer Pendleton option in the widget.
Also in the widget are some really cute Amazon options, but as ever, let the reviews on Amazon be your guide. I’ve ordered super cute Amazon items and then ones that don’t really translate to the real world. Have I given you enough disclaimers? Let’s get shopping.
