THE KILT’S A GIVEN. BUT WHAT ELSE TO WEAR?
Complete your Highland Games look with accessories to match your tartan and make the ultimate Celtic statement.
Whether you’re competing or milling about the grounds, keep your shins cool and dry with a Scottish version of a sock.
Fancy up your kilt hose cuffs with these tartan “flags” or “tassles” that poke out and say “I really put some thought into this whole get-up today” They also have the practical benefit of holding your kilt hose in place.
You’re going to have your hands full carrying around food, drink, or heavy stones and stumps. A tasteful (or more ornate) sporran is the perfect pouch to hold your pocket-sized items.
Send a message and rep Sport Kilt on your upper half with a T-shirt that will turn heads and be the envy of lads and lasses at the festival!
Don’t let a fear of slipping out keep you from jumping high or dancing hard. Wrap your kilt around these undershorts and play without restriction.
