With talks of Scotland's independence from the UK flooding the internet, one is inspired to recount these Scottish style finds that have influenced high fashion and streetwear fads.

After donning a kilt during his Yeezus tour, Kanye West inspired countless manly men to try the Scottish style that has been a traditional staple for centuries. From Givenchy and Moschino to Fausto Puglisi and Andrea Crews, designers everywhere are drawing inspiration from Scottish culture and its affinity for tartan prints, masculine skirting and layered knits.

From editorials and ad campaigns to haute runway staples, Scottish fashion fads will forever be timeless and elegant. A standout from this list are Andrea Crew's layered tartan casuals that are a Scottish-themed version of hipster streetwear looks.
