Tartan or Plaid - 1950s style

If, like me, you love Scottie dogs, there comes a time when you take a serious look at tartan (or plaid for my American friends).  Tartan and Scotties go together like.....Scotties and Jell-o...

Now tartan luggage, that's an idea.

Here's some fashion advice from the Australian Home journal, October 1950.

and a few lovely tartan things I have found on Etsy. I don't really get to wear coats here in Queensland, but I do love this one.

Wouldn't this dress be great for Christmas?

Of course Plaid does not always have to feature red. I love these two dresses.

How is this for plaid on plaid?
