Houndstooth Chic


One of the most famous prints since the 90’s is not only back again this year but has been revived in a more modernized take for this fall and winter season. Houndstooth is such a classic trend in the fall and winter because it’s such a chic, timeless and recognizable pattern. It’s an elegant print that can be worn by the young and the young at heart. Creating complete outfits that include houndstooth can be difficult, especially if you’re not use to being bold with your fashion choices. The key to incorporating this print into your ensemble is to be subtle; adding a hint of this print sends the message that you are fierce without being overwhelming.  When wearing houndstooth with other colors try to stick to basic colors. Black, white and gray are colors you can wear the pattern with without thinking twice. If these colors bore you, pair it with pastels or even a bright bold accessory, just remember to keep the rest of the outfit simple. You don’t want too many overpowering colors or accessories since houndstooth is already a striking print. Wearing other prints or graphics isn’t recommended so stick with solids. A houndstooth coat will give you a vintage feel but add a twist of modern fashion with a red belt for a sophisticated yet chic look.  Houndstooth when properly worn can spice up the simplest of outfits while delivering a serious punch of snazzy.
