Tartan Check outfits

I spent some time on Boxing day replacing the worn-out elastic in the sleeves of BTSSB's Tartan Check Ribbon Tiny Sleeves JSK, one of my newest acquisitions. And, with the fixing all done I thought it'd be nice to try out some coording possibilities with it.


I've always had a soft spot for tartan, and this dress is not only pretty but is really super comfortable! I like that it's a bit old-school, but not so much so that that's the only way you can wear it. All in all it's a piece I'm very glad to have gotten my hands on!


Firstly, I wanted to put together something simple and old-school with it. I'm not a huge fan in the end though, it doesn't seem old-school enough. But it's an idea to play with in future, and I'd definitely still wear this.


Next I wanted to make something... well, totally me.I love this outfit! It's super cute, very comfortable and wonderfully cozy. Also, a random fact that I enjoy is that JSK, bolero and socks were all bought on Japanese auctions. Gotta love that online shopping.


Lastly I waned to try pairing it with the Alice in the Pirates cutsew that I did end up pinching from the model wardrobe after all. This outfit is quite simple but I think it's cute; off-white tights are meant to be included as well but don't look so good in pictures. This is less something I would wear but is still an outfit I think is really cute.

So you have any tartan in your lolita wardrobe?

  2. Would love to get some blue tartan on me. Trying to steer away from too many dark pieces though lol.
    Great coordinates. I agree with your comment about the old school coordinate. There's so much possibility there!

    1. Oh yeah, blue tartan would be luscious! And if it's a brighter royal blue it's not that dark... right? ;)

  5. The second outfit, love! Grey, black and red go together so beautifully. Tartan is my favorite pattern, besides polka dots.
