HOUNDSTOOTH: HOW TO WEAR IT





Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. <a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOPc4db83216cfffdd72085798a61a12cc7" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>
Houndstooth is one of the fall/winter wardrobe staple, You can find it everywhere from heels to bags to clothes, hairbands, etc. I am a fan, Its a classic & has stood the test of time, often used in in wovens, silk, tweed, cotton fabrics, its also appearing as prints these days.
You can say: Its the new BLACK
History : Houndstooth originated in Scotland in the 1800s, it was originally worn as an outer garment of woven wool cloth by shepherd

Shoes: wholesale-dress
Pants: forever 21
Bracelet: exposedenvy
Bra straps: exposedenvy









This bracelet & rhinestone Bra straps sent with love from this fabulous online store exposedenvy are one of the prettiest things I own. I know we all love all our sponsors but we definitely love some more than others & these two things definitely have all my love , you can tell, I'm wearing them back to back in two posts. Girls check out this store. They sell removable bra straps & bracelets. They carry other styles as well like beaded bra straps & other decorative bra straps & bra accessories
And if you like me totally adore them, & are game for a giveaway, then yes, thats right, you'll have one. Watch this space.

Collage of My favorite looks from past wearing Houndstooth

5 ways to wear Houndstooth: my past looks
1. Create some contrast: Wear it with lace Contrast adds depth to any outfit, be it in fabric, print, etc

2. Play it safe: houndstooth coat with tights

3. Mix some prints

4. Layer it on : Houndstooth pants with silk printed Houndstooth top
5. Layer it with houndtooth silk top underneath Houndstooth coat : future post (will update the link)

You can see how I've worked with same pieces of clothings & layered them or worn as separates & created multiple looks
In the collage above, no. 2 & no. 3, Same houndstooth top with  houndstooth coat & pants, yes I totally believe in reusing my clothes & creating different looks with them with mix & match.
No 1, 2 & middle pic Same coat worn 3 ways
Yes some permutation combination & ta da! for easy understanding of the likes of my husband, maths & stuff

So the point I'm trying to make you can create endless looks with just a few clothes.
Though there is endless inspiration for wearing Houndstooth & celebrity spotting in Houndstooth on internet but I had to include a picture of my favorite none other than Blair Waldorf
