I’m very happy to introduce a new segment on the blog, where every week, I’ll be styling a Wardrobe Essential/Staple/Basic or Trend. Today’s Trend is Houndstooth. Houndstooth is a classic, timeless and traditional print that has been really popular this winter season. Vintage houndstooth is usually black and white, but designers have put a modern twist to this classic print and now you can enjoy the print in many different colors & sizes. Apart from size and color, this print can be found in many different pieces like outerwear, shoes, bags & scarves…the possibilities are endless.
When wearing houndstooth, you can pair it with black, white, gray or red pieces like I did! For the bold and adventurous go for bright shades of purple, blue, yellow or pink. If you want to do some print mixing, Leopard print is a fabulous choice!
In today’s outfit, I styled houndstooth leggings. The design is striped down on the side, giving the print a modern twist. They also have an elastic waist which I love because it makes them fit perfectly. They are also extremely warm and perfect for the cold weather. Sticking with the black and white theme I paired it with a black tank and blazer. I accessorized with my new favorite color, red, for a pop of color. Featuring my favorite red lip – Ruby Woo, red ankle strap heels & a red quilted bag. This is something you can wear to the office or an evening out for drinks.
