Trending: Houndstooth


Houndstooth is one of those classic (b +w) prints that can be worn all year round in endless ways. The winter/holiday is the obvious season, but houndstooth can certainly be taken well into the spring when worn in light fabrics or vibrant colors (see House of Hollands Fall 2012 line, below). It can be both modern or vintage. When the size of the print is large-scale it looks graphic and modern. Wear it in it’s throwback, 1960’s style by choosing a small-scale print and get the bonus of adding depth by giving the garment the illusion of texture. There isn’t a wrong way to incorporate the trend.  Below I’ve shown how to wear the trend from head to toe and suggested where to buy it (whatever your budget).
