Houndstooth check updated for 2017
According to Vogue, Paris Fashion Week was (as always!) full of surprises. “…for fall 2017, designers showed all kinds of riffs on traditional menswear tailoring, only bent to women’s bodies.” One of the best? The return of classic houndstooth check.
But, this isn’t your grandmother’s houndstooth check! Although the pattern may be familiar, the applications are thoroughly modern. From a stunning Chanel jacket, to Urstadt Swan gloves, to Emilio Cavallini tights, to Manolo Blahnik shoes… houndstooth check is everywhere.
I’ve showcased a few of my personal favorites, above, including the Alexander Wang oversized houndstooth check blazer. This blazer is cut from a wool-blend and adorned with a row of silver and fabric-covered buttons. Paired with leather pants, this traditional black-and-white pattern becomes red hot. Retail: $995
I also love the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Faux leather-trimmed skirt with an oh-so-60’s vibe. Cut from wool and woven with a micro houndstooth check, this skirt has a mod, thigh-grazing length. Retail: $460
Finally, the Stella McCartney Falabella clutch in oversized houndstooth check has a faux suede lining and gunmetal-tone hardware, with a chain link shoulder strap. Retail: $820
