STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Houndstooth Is Happening

Style Advice of the Week

Though the trees aren’t full of beautiful colors or flowers, wintertime does not mean dull. The same goes for winter fashion this season. Although it might not be the appropriate time to sport your brightly colored summer wardrobe, winter can still be full of fun, seasonally appropriate prints. For those winter days when your outfit needs a pop, grab a wonderful houndstooth piece.

This Fashionista is wearing a great houndstooth cardigan. I was immediately drawn to her use of the cardigan as the main focal point of her look. This print is perfect for wintertime because it’s not a bright summer or spring print. Houndstooth is a classic, yet fun and feminine print. Her headwrap is not only a fashionable winter accessory but ties in perfectly with the gray in her cardigan. Her black boots top off the wintertime outfit.

Houndstooth is available to fit any style this season. For a feminine look, try a houndstooth dress and add red accessories for an edgy vibe. Houndstooth does not only have to be in neutral tones. Try a teal and black houndstooth cardigan to add a fun print and color to your wardrobe this winter.

Houndstooth works for those lucky Fashionistas interning this year, too. Try a houndstooth pencil skirt for a fun business casual look. You can pair it with black tights and red flats. For a subtler touch of the print, wear a houndstooth scarf with a neutral sweater to keep warm and fashionable.

Though the dark, cold days are in full force here in Iowa City, that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be. Hey, the holiday season is right around the corner and houndstooth should make your list this year!
