1. Match a kilt to events you have coming up this year.

Choosing the perfect kilt for any event or occasion you’ll be attending throughout the year is essential. Picking the right kilt can seem daunting at first, especially when you think about if you need accessories for your kilt or what other piece of clothing will go well with your kilt.

Step 2: Select the right colour and size for you

Kilt Colours.

Without a doubt, colour plays a big role in any fashion because it makes you look better and makes you stand out from the crowd. Colours also affect how you feel and also invoke similar emotions on those around you.

Simply put, colour attracts attention, creates an emotional connection, and leaves a lasting impression. Utility kilts are designed with practicality in mind, but they also allow you to show off your own style.

Knowing how you want to project yourself will help you in determining which colour/s to pick and/or which accent colour is present on the kilt. For example, Ozkilts Movember Utility Kilts come in black with red tartan accents. The Ozkilts St. Patrick’s Utility Kilts also come in black, but with green tartan accents.


Sizing Your Kilt.

Apart from colours, it is also equally important to determine the correct size when purchasing your utility kilt. At this venture, we advise our customers, especially first time buyers, to refer to our sizing guide.

Perhaps the most relevant piece of advice we can offer when buying kilts is to not order your kilt based on your pant size. It simply does not work. Additionally, it would also be advisable to have someone take your measurement instead of taking the measurement yourself to avoid mistakes.

Modern utility kilts are typically worn at the traditional kilt level, which is around the navel. There are some who opt to wear them lower down the navel, it’s entirely a matter of preference, but note that it’s essential to be sure of your required size.

SPECIAL NOTE: When considering length, ensure that the kilt does not go lower than your knee cap’s level. Remember, you’re wearing a kilt, not a skirt, although the amount of drop length is really still up to you.

Colours and size are crucial factors to consider when choosing a utility kilt that will suit your personal style and physique. Regardless if you prefer vibrant and bold colours or the more subdued and classic ones, there is an Ozkilts Utility Kilt style for every taste and preference.

The proper kilt measurement, especially around your waist and hip area, ensures the kilt fits and drapes well to enhance the look of your physique. Furthermore, a well-fitted kilt does not hamper freedom of movement and makes you look polished and well-put together even if you wear it with just plain tees and sneakers.


Step 3: Treat yourself with a Kilt Hanger and Kilt Belt to make the most of 2024.

To make the most of your kilt wearing experience, we highly recommend investing in two exceptional accessories 

The Ozkilts Utility Kilt Belt.

A well-put-together kilt is an asset, similar to snappy suits that can be made more fabulous with the use of various accessories. In like fashion, utility kilts can be enhanced with its own set of accessories, prime of which is the Utility Kilt Belt.

An important question you might ask is do you even need a utility kilt belt to begin with? You certainly do without a utility kilt belt, since Ozkilts Utility Kilts can be fastened securely with either the Velcro Fastening or Leather Fastening Systems.

But if you are discriminating in how you present yourself through your clothing, an Ozkilts Utility Kilt Belt is an accessory you can’t do without. Ozkilts Utility Kilt’s fastening systems ensure a perfect fit, but with the addition of a utility kilt belt, it gives added functionality and boosts your style.

A utility kilt belt also serves working men well by allowing them to load it up with tools without discomfort and reaching for tools to get their job done. How can you not love that?


The Ozkilts Utility Kilt Hanger.

Kilts are sturdy pieces of clothing that require little maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you can be careless and not treat your fabulous kilt with reverence. Even if you love your kilt so much you’d want to wear them all the time, we’re sure you won’t be wearing your kilt 24/7.

To make the most of your kilt in 2024, and beyond, consider investing in an Ozkilts Kilt Hanger. Similar to traditional kilts, a utility kilt hanger will help in extending the service life of your utility kilt and help it maintain its integrity and looks.

In times, you have to shift to regular clothing, a kilt can’t be simply folded and stored. Doing so can potentially crease the fabric and misalign its pleats.

That will not look well and says a lot about you if your kilt is not pristine, smooth and flat. Hanging your kilt when not in use ensures that it’s always ready to wear, this not only saves you time and effort to have to iron out your kilt before wear.

By the way, if you’d require multiple utility kilt hangers if you are a kilt tailor or a Scottish pipe band who work with and/or wear kilts in volume, Ozkilts give discounts for bulk orders of utility kilt hangers for 50 or more units. Get in touch with us to know more.
