Tartans and plaids are perennial favourites and ideal for adding a bold statement to otherwise plain outfits. Add a chic blazer, made up in Guiding Light Plaid to your black key separates for instant impact.


Guiding Light is woven with a versatile palette of multi-tonal greys, black and bright yellow, like car headlights guiding you through the grey mist, clothed highways. Ideal for both classic, retro and high fashion garments. Tartan is timeless and plaid is not a fad! This classic looks fabulous teamed with super-smart black, grey and yellow separates.


Guiding Light has the look of a wool tartan, but is woven from hard-wearing polyester yarn perfect for school uniforms and children's clothing boasting a soft non-itchy feel, stable hand and reassuring medium-heavy drape quality which is ideal for tailoring.

Garment Suggestions:

Guiding Light will look great cut on the bias for tucked and draped Vivienne Westwood-style dresses and skirts. Other uses are pencil skirts, and classic semi-tailored silhouettes, jackets, waistcoats and 50's style cigarette pants, add a matching waistcoat such as The Jemima Waistcoat.

If you love bold tartan statements add some Cordelia Trousers, Pinafore dresses, fit and flare dresses and circle skirts and lots of other '40s & '50s Rockabilly, Retro and Lindy Bop Styles).  Create classic kilts, coats, jackets, capes and poncho wraps.

Other Uses:

Hats, caps, bags and accessories.
