Hello, it’s me Bad to the Blonde. Houndstooth is synonymous with the holidays. The classic two-tone color combo is somewhat-sexy and sophisticated. It’s even street style approved with the right shoes. Here’s how to style the heritage print if you’re looking for outfit inspo this season.
Houndstooth to happy hour
Houndstooth has some history. Christian Dior even saw it’s compatibility. After all these years, there’s nothing more iconic than this black and white, broken check. It’s a modern day woman’s camo. With a lot more class.
The dogtooth shape gives the print some futuristic edge…which is why it has never gone out of style. Like, a headline won’t ever read “Houndstooth hangs it up”. Pun not intended. Look instantly chic when you combine houndstooth with, well, anything in your closet. (And with that kind-of versatility you don’t have to wear it just to the office.) Just like you would mix metals in your home, wear the abstract print with leather to denim, even layer it with sweat sets…or his work shirt.
Houndstooth has been updated in the latest Pantone palette to pants. But a favorite is still cropped silhouettes. No wonder houndstooth is a strong style statement. And Mary Janes know this game. When a loafer and heel combined it became the sexiest shoe showing just enough skin. (And what other heel can be worn with socks in any weather?)
A pop of color in all the right places puts together the perfect outfit. So buckle it, button it or hold it by the handle. And if you’re looking for another option, did you know you can rent it?
Strut your way into another season in green
It’s ease to be mixed and matched can go from classy to cool in the change of a shoe. The things green does to home decor – is the same things it does to your wardrobe. (I literally lowered my blood pressure opening this shoe box.) In the spectrum of this shade, few scream St. Patty’s Day.
Go with green and get inspired from Mother Nature. Mood boosting colors are like a vitamin supplement – but from your closet.
