Houndstooth Time…move along plaid!

It’s time to get your chic on ladies! What’s ultra chic for this season (autumn/winter 2018) is everything HOUNDSTOOTH! From coats, to sweaters, to skirts, shorts, shoes… it’s all about the houndstooth pattern. I was a smart girl and I got myself a few pieces with this print last winter and I had no idea back then, that this will be “the pattern to have” this season.

Comfy tailored trousers with bodysuit and my “GUCCI inspired” long button jersey with GUCCI sneakers for a casual chic street style and glammed the look up with an elegant YSL bag (Classic Monogram Saint Laurent top handle bag with metal chain and leather, removable shoulder strap and interlocking YSL signature closure)

And don’t think I stopped there! I have been buying pieces with this print LIKE CRAZY this past month (thank you ZARA!)

In case you didn’t know, at first, the print came in woven wool cloth and was only in black and white colours. It has evolved over the years, and now comes in different colours on a variety of fabrics. It is a duo-tone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes.

I was seeing a lot of this print at all our local stores and the choices are endless…
Aren’t you glad this print is making a huge comeback? As you all may know by now I am a huge CHANEL fan and was tickled to see HOUNDSTOOTH print at the Fall-Winter 2017/18 Ready-to-wear CHANEL show:

Finish the look with this make-up tutorial presented by CHANEL and Fiona Fussi. It’s a natural look that reflects my signature “red lip” which I love!

I hope you enjoyed this post – I’d love to hear what prints you’re crushing over right now! Leave a comment below…
