Apparently, houndstooth patterns are trendy this season, which is great, because I’ve always loved them! Actually, I am under the impression that they have always been trendy. The houndstooth clothing that my grandmother, my mother, I and thousands of other women had prove the point.
In my collection, I have a wonderful houndstooth coat (I showed it here). I also have a black & white blazer, and now I have a wrap dress. What I like the most about that pattern is that it may be in various colors and still always looks great!
Today the main role is played by my new black & beige houndstooth wrap dress. This color combination is a classic, however with blond, or grey hair like mine, one may look rather toneless.
I love juicy colors, so I layered my dress with a tangerine linen blazer. In this way, this outfit is more interesting and definitely no longer toneless. And of course I also have red lipstick and nails.
Accessorizng was very easy: golden jewelry, and shoes and purse in neutrals. In this outfit, the most eye catching element is my blazer (not the dress), but I like it anyway. 🙂
Speaking of shoes, I presented today’s outfit both with loafers (because when I have to walk a lot I wear flats), and with pumps. In my opinion, this dress looks great with both types of shoes. The rule is very simple – if you want to look more elegant and elevate your outfit, then choose pumps. Choosing loafers will make your outfit more casual.
If you don’t like to be noticed, then instead of a juicy colored blazer you can wear white, black, beige, brown, rusty or an off white one. But then try to add more vivid accessories to make the overall outfit more interesting.
I am still wondering whether I prefer more the wrap or shirt dresses? It’s a difficult choice, so for now let’s say they are in joint first place. 🙂
And what do you choose?
