The Houndstooth Trend Revival 2014

I have always been a big fan of houndstooth. It’s just so chic! The eye-catching houndstooth print originated in Scotland in 1800′s and has been reinvented on the catwalk by everyone from Coco Chanel, Moschino  and Christian Dior to Louis Vuitton and now Balmain.

Houndstooth is so easy to wear, you can’t go wrong with black & white! You can also find it in other colours including neon for an updated twist. If this bold print is too much for you try wearing just an accent piece like a scarf, jacket, bag or heels.

Jump on board ladies because this is one trend that will never go out of style. Still unsure? I found 10 pieces below that might wet your whistle!

Are you sold on this old school monochrome print or does it still remind you of a David Jones carrier bag?

    Depending on HOW the houndstooth print is done – some look too much like DJs print – while there are some that are interspersed with other motifs eg. floral – that can work well.

      We didn’t have that DJ’s problem in the UK Norlin but I see how it can be an issue here! Very tricky! Loving the houndstooth and floral mix. x
