When Salvatore Ferragamo dubbed his A/W 11 collection with a heavy mixture of prints and patterns no one could have anticipated the fashion frenzy the houndstooth would cause. This two-toned checkered pattern is the must-have-in-your-fall-wardrobe piece that’s got hollywood buzzing and high street stores making replicas!
Stars such as Rihanna, Willow Smith, Evan Rachel Wood, Jessie J and even Lady Gaga who wore a head to toe Salvatore Ferragamo houndstooth outfit on The View back in August are just a handful of A-Listers who can’t get enough of this monochrome trend.
50’s chic are in with pencil skirts, pussy blouses and polka dots as your covetables! Sporting a houndstooth number is a fabulous way to capture this fashion era in your outfit. It adds an ounce of sophistication to any winter closet and instantly update your basics!
If going head to toe in Houndstooth à la Lady Gaga is too daring for you, opt for a subtle look with accents of houndstooth in the form of accessories and cover-ups just like Rihanna and Khloe Kardashian. A Style tip for you: Rock your houndstooth print with bold colours. A clutch or shoes in this pattern will help nail the look!
