If you think that a kilt is appropriate only for formal events, you’re in for a surprise! The kilt is a garment for all seasons and occasions. If you’d like to wear it every day, do so without an ounce of fear of making a fashion faux pas. A variety of daily wear kilts is available to provide you with a convenient garment to wear round the clock.
Try Kilts for Different Occasions
Kilts remove the boredom from daily wear, adding a fresh style to your wardrobe and looks, while allowing for extreme comfort. You can wear them to work, casual outings or even for recreational visits.
For instance, the Metal Utility Kit is perfect for any occasion while adding a bit of edginess to your look. Made from 100% cotton, this kilt adds style and comfort with its D-shackles, chrome chains, and large detachable pockets.
Consider wearing kilts for occasions and jobs that need a great degree of movement. For example, if you’re driving long distances, a kilt will keep you comfortable and give you the space to move your legs freely without feeling cramped.
In short, you could wear your kilt to all the places you’d go to in jeans!
Be Subtle with the Patterns
Avoid heavy patterns when using your kilt for everyday wear. You can style up your kilt with a collarless shirt for a stylish twist, or pair it with formal shirts for a professional look.
You can also experiment with a range of colours. No matter the occasion, tucking your shirt into the kilt is an extremely important kilt etiquette, especially if you are aiming for a neat, clean and casual look.
Experiment with Different Footwear
Boots go perfectly with kilts. You could try different boots – a Ghillie boot works best when you are aiming for a casual or semiformal look. A pair of high-quality casual brogues teams up fantastically with a kilt, setting you apart in a formal or casual setup.
Pair up your kilt with boat shoes for a completely casual look, or go chic with a pair of stylish and colourful suede brogues.
Accessorise for a Greater Style Effect
Styling using kilt accessories such as sporrans and kilt belts is a highly personal choice and much depends on the kind of effect you want to create and your personal taste too.
If you do not want to let go of tradition completely, go for a plain sporran. You can also go for a striking kilt belt with an attractive buckle. Pair up the accessories with a basic kilt pin to complete your look.
