This fall, we’re crazy for houndstooth!  One of the biggest international trends for 2013, this classic black and white duotone pattern has been seen on designer runways from the likes of Chanel, Celine and Michael Kors. A staple in every woman’s wardrobe, this print is a great investment and will continue to make a comeback.

Rock this sophisticated & bold look this season and keep turning those heads!

Fun fact: Houndstooth originated in Scotland in the 1800’s and was typically worn as an outer garment by shepherds. It was originally called Shepherd’s Check or Dogstooth.

Wear it with: jeans, a pencil skirt or tights

Tips:

  • Add a bold lip color like red or fuschia to polish off your look
  • Accessorize with edgy statement pieces like army boots, spikes or chain to take your outfit to the next level
  • Don’t over-do it. One piece of this geometric print is enough. Pair with solid colors for a well-balanced, styled look
