Fall 2012 Trend: Houndstooth

TREND ALERT! A psychedelic twist on traditional houndstooth is all the rage for fall! The classic black and white look has been replaced with vibrant modern colors that make it anything but ordinary. These bold patterns were seen in varying forms, from suits, to coats, to dresses.

This vivacious pattern suit was seen at House of a Holland (left), while the trend was paired with sheer fabric to create this sexy evening dress at Pucci (right). Dior took the trend a step further, pairing it with the fall muted pattern trend, to create this statement trench with scaled-back houndstooth print (center). This colorful print is being seen in everything from outerwear and dresses, to handbags and other accessories in soft and hard textures. With this trend it’s all about making a statement. Pair a colorful houndstooth piece with a classic black legging for an edgy city look. Or use it as an accent piece by updating a classic look with houndstooth accessories like Emma Stone in these Salvatore Ferragamo houndstooth pumps. We also love this Oscar de la Renta houndstooth dress for a more elegant and professional look for the chic business-savvy.

GET THE LOOK: Want to rock this trendy style?  Try the ArileSimone houndstooth headband for a classic and elegant look in black and white, or choose a custom color for a more daring statement piece.  Admittedly the best accessory to any outfit that will spruce up that wardrobe and put some flirt back into your frock.
