No. 1 Style worn
by clanswomen. The sash is worn over the right shoulder across the breast
and is secured by a pin or small brooch on the right shoulder.
No. 2 Style worn
by Chief tainesses, wives of clan chiefs and wives of the Colonels of
Scottish Regiments. The sash which may be rather fuller in size is worn
over the left shoulder and secured with a brooch on the left shoulder.
No. 3 Style worn
by ladies who have married out of their clan, but who still wish to use
their original clan tartan. The sash usually longer than No 1 style, is
worn over the right shoulder secured there with a pin and fastened in a
large bow on the left hip.
No. 4 Style worn
by country dancers or where any lady desires to keep the front of the
dress clear of the sash (as, for example, when wearing the ribbon of a
chivalric order, or any orders and decorations). This style is similar to
the belted plaid, and is really a small arisaid. It is buttoned on at the
back of the waist, or is held by a small belt, and is secured at the right
shoulder by a pin or small brooch, so that the ends fall backwards from
the right shoulder and swing at the back of the right arm.
