Tartans and Highland dress accessories

Tartan is the most iconic element of Scottish traditional dress and has a rich history dating back to the Celts of the 3rd century AD and today there is an almost endless variety of tartans in various colours and tones. With such a wide range of available options, it’s almost impossible not to find a tartan that suits you! Feel free to ask your kilt-maker for guidance during a visit at Frasers.

Choosing formal Highland dress

Highland dress is never bought ‘off the shelf’. Instead, it requires input from a professional kilt maker who will create your outfit and show you how to wear it. Such a serious investment is worth doing a bit of research for, so we’ve made it easy to get all the information you need before you purchase your Highland wear.

When to wear Highland dress

Although sometimes reserved for traditional Scottish occasions, we think Highland dress is perfect for any formal event. It’s a fantastic alternative to more conventional formalwear and will help you to make a sartorial splash. We go by the golden rule of thumb, that if a dinner jacket is an appropriate clothing item for an event, then Highland dress is too.
