Tartans are also called plaids, checkered clothes.. Tartan is a pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands in multiple colours. Tartans originated in woven cloth, now used in many other materials. Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland. Scottish kilts almost always have tartan patterns. (Tartan is also known as plaid in North America, but in Scotland, a plaid is a tartan cloth slung over the shoulder or a blanket.)
My must haves are a plaid shirt to wear with leggings or jeans or a plaid skirt paired with a simple black, gray or white top.
