Plaid and animal print have been big trends in the past few years. But there’s a newer, more updated version of these trends on the market – houndstooth! This classic, checked print has been making the rounds on runways around the world and it’s about time we incorporate it into our own wardrobes. And contrary to what many might think, it isn’t a very difficult task. We’ve made the job easier for you by shortlisting five of our favourite ways to wear the houndstooth trend!
A great way to make a statement in houndstooth is by rocking the print in the form of a sweater. This off-shoulder one from Mantra has dainty gold detailing and would go perfectly with a black pair of high-waisted jeans and strappy heels! Trust us, you’ll feel super glam.
The great thing about the houndstooth print is that you can easily wear it to work. Go for a smaller print in a neutral shade, such as these wide-leg ones from Mango. They’ll go great with a sweater and some boots in the colder months or with a button-down and loafers in the summers!
Bundle Me Up
If you want to be right on trend but in a more subtle way, incorporating the houndstooth print through accessories is the way to go. This shawl-cape – another big trend – from Breakout is the perfect way to add a glimpse of the print without being OTT. You’ll be warm and cozy and will kill the fashion game!
Fashion isn’t the only way you can flaunt this hot trend – home decor is just as fun of an option. Get a houndstooth throw or cushion, like this one from Daraz, to add some oomph and glamour to your room! You can choose from a variety of colours and it’ll serve as the perfect accent piece on your couch.
Something For Everyone
What we love about this trend is that it’s incredibly diverse and the men in your life can easily rock it as well. A simple tie in the print will be enough to make a statement! Bux has some great options for when he wants to look polished and professional but show off his fashion game as well.
