I’m So Crushing On The Houndstooth Print Right Now
Not too long ago we had the Gingham prints taking over summer now I’m crushing on the Houndstooth print which has been making a big statement on runways and at Fashion Week. It is a style that is also popular amongst Fashion Bloggers this fall.
I remember a few years ago when Houndstooth was wearing, it was mainly in black and white fabrics. But now as it is making a come back, its widely available in red, brown, gray and black pieces.
Houndstooth is one of those prints that can be worn on any occasion. Either in a casual or business setting with the choice of a dress, blazer or trousers.
This seems to be one of those styles that circles back around really quickly because I still own a pair of houndstooth necklace from the last time it was trending. But I didn’t wear it with this dress so I’ll probably do so with another outfit; something less dramatic or a against a solid colour.
The Dress And The Belt
At the time I bought this dress I was actually looking for a houndstooth trousers, one that I can wear for both work and going out but after trying it on I didn’t like how it looked. So I gave up and as I was on my way out of the store, that’s when I saw this dress on a rack.
Decided to try it on and the fit was pretty cool so I ended up getting this instead. The dress has a wide flare and the fit is not really flattering so I knew I needed to give it some shape. Also, its gray and black which makes it look dull. So I used a red wide belt to accentuate my curves and for a pop of colour.
These pumps are a mixture of leather and plastic from BCBG and I hardly ever wear them out because its so high but they are great for functions and events that doesn’t require a lot of walking. They are the reason why I chose to go with a red belt because I knew I had a red pair of shoes to match up.
