1970s Bright Red Tartan Check Blazer, 38in Bust
A classic tartan jacket just transcends the eras, it has been loved for so long that it becomes timeless. This example is from the 1970s, but it could easily pass as 1940s. The wide shoulders are similar, the waist is nipped and the hips have a slight flare. The flap pockets draw the eye to the hips, extending them to really accentuate the silhouette. With being a blended fabric it is much easier to care for and be a cooler choice for the warmer months. This is go with so many outfits, even if you prefer a more modern vibe, so wear with jeans and trainers, chunky boots and skinnies for a punky vibe, or a full skirt for a nod to the 50s. The only limitation is your imagination!
