Outlander Inspired Vintage Plaid Skirt

Outlander series 4 is presently being shown on Amazon Prime. It airs on American TV on the previous Sunday and we then catch it on the Monday. I spend my Monday ‘lunch hour’ glued to the TV. It is my favourite programme. Books are always best but this adaptation faithfully follows the original stories with only a few detours. My Mum introduced me to the books by Diana Galbadon a few years ago. So you can imagine how delighted we both were when the series began filming for TV in 2014.

Now dont worry I will not be wearing a cloak or a cape or explaining how to lace up a corset in this post (bottom to top if you must know) I will be wearing tartan aka check or plaid depending on your ethnic origins.

Peter Robinson Vintage Skirt

Peter Robinson was a fabulous department store at Oxford Circus London. They introduced Top Shop to the world in the seventies. It is the same building that Top Shop is in today. Peter Robinson is still owned by the Arcadia group but the name faded from the store front sometimes in the early 80’s. When I was a 15 year old teenager it was the place to head for on a day out in London.

Whilst rummaging through the rails of a charity store in Gloucestershire recently I found this vintage skirt, with its Peter Robinson label intact. It brought back so many memories. It was a woven tartan pattern, contained wool and was a true vintage item. At approx £6 it was also a bargain so inspired by my love of all things Outlander I snapped it up and took it home with me.

Outlander Style

Styling vintage is easy if you mix it with modern pieces already in your wardrobe. I have written many posts on how I style my vintage finds so I can wear them in my every day life. I knew it needed an over-sized piece of knitwear and some knee length boots, luckily I had both in my wardrobe…

So what do you think? I like to think the ‘Jamie and Claire’ would approve!

If any crazy Outlander Cherokee dresses up as a bear and attacks my home I’ll hit him with my handbag!

    You have beat me to it! I have a vintage red tartan skirt which I purchased in M&S many years ago and have been unable to wear due to gaining weight. Now however, I have lost weight and once again can wear my cosy tartan skirt. I love to be different if I can and finding unusual items is hard to come across.

    I love your skirt Ashley it’s so festive. I love getting a bargain in a charity shop. Not only is it helping the charity it’s also recycling. I got a lovely teddy bear fur jacket that are in now from a children’s hospice shop for £3.99 the other week. It’s so warm! I’m guessing that it’s vintage as it’s adamant.
    Merry Christmas to you & your family. I do enjoy your posts so I’m grateful to finding you via Woman & Home. Vote cast for you. Fingers crossed.

      Hi Nancy, Uk Charity shops are brilliant in the rural areas. The town ones are more expensive. This skirt was a fab find and its warm too.

      Happy weekend to you and yours!

      Bestest wishes

    I love this green plaid. I do not see this color often and I like the length.
