I love this look, it is elegant and classic. Nonetheless, when you pair it with a bold color accessory or separates, you just made a bold edgy statement. Red is a safe match for this pattern as seem in Gwyneth Paltrow's shoes and the outfit below. However, don't be afraid to mix and match with the color block trends for the Fall/Winter: purple, burgundy, fuchsia and green.
A more modern look is also easy to achieve with the larger pattern of checkers, like this outfit from Target.
So, if you are shopping for a Holiday outfit, don't rule out the old Houndstooth style.
Until next time, keep looking fabulous.
