The “KILT”. . . a skirt from antiquity, worn by men. . . well not always. The Kilt has been seen in the female fashion world in almost every modern decade. “Fashion Styled” in many different ways depending on the locale and time period.
The original Kilt always made of tartan plaids, with front side fringe and buckles, was popular in the fashion progressive 60’s. This pattern has illustrations reminiscent of the “60’s Preppy Look” …think Bryn Mawr, Vassar, Radcliffe. The Kilt skirt of that “Fashion Style” was worn with pullover sweaters, blouses, cardigan sweaters, blazers, knee socks, and low heeled casual shoes. The newly designed “panty hose” or “tights” in every color and even the “fish net” of the Mod period could be seen worn with the kilts of the 60’s.
However, you don’t have to stay with the 60’s. . . Let your imagination and memories inspire you to “Fashion Style” the Kilt skirt in the many ways, it was worn, through the many fashion era’s.
