Happy Birthday, Robbie Burns!

In celebration of Scotland's most beloved lad, we're throwing a tartan and plaid-tastic party on January 25.

The Bard (as Scots affectionately call him) was far from a fashion revolutionary — he was an 18th century Scottish poet who was recently deemed his nation's Greatest Scot. Nonetheless, we see no reason why we can't grab a swig of scotch and help ourselves to some haggis in style (how often do we really get the chance to proudly parade in plaid?).

Here are some outfit suggestions courtesy of Citizen Style. (Just be sure to don a coat over those springy/summery looks en route to the bar.)
