Houndstooth Happiness! x

I’m not normally one to follow all the fads and trends; I generally rather classic and elegant styling but I just can’t resist jumping on the houndstooth bandwagon! I have always loved the David Jones signature print and it has been popping up everywhere lately. In fact, it’s not just houndstooth that is on trend this season, it’s black and white print in general. Black and white checkered dresses, shorts, tops and jumpers can be found in almost every store and all the greatest designers including Louis Vuitton are including it in their collections.

In winter it can be so easy to slip into the fashion faux par of wearing all black every day but with the houndstooth and B&W trend on the rise perhaps we can inject just the smallest bit of colour back into our winter wardrobes. This is made easier by the fact that B&W prints always look so lovely when teamed with a strong block colour such as red or neon yellow.

Houndstooth is not the easiest print to pull off, especially on your legs. It can be very unforgiving when the lines get a little warped by our lumps and bumps but with a little persistence the right cut can be found. The addition of a thick black strip down the side helps to elongate and thin the legs for a more flattering silhouette.
