Timeless is a bit of an overused word in fashion circles, but when it comes to a print like a houndstooth, few others suffice. It’s a print that really does transcend seasons and eras and the fleeting trends that breeze in and out on a near-impossible-to-keep-up-with basis.

Houndstooth is one of those patterns that I’m kinda unsure about- mostly because it appeals a lot to old men lol. But styled right, it gives an element of edgy classic sophistication that I really like.

In celebration of me overcoming my houndstooth inhibition, here are 2 ways you can triumph in styling houndstooth like an expert.

My number one tip on how to style houndstooth, is to add very ‘of-the-moment’ fashion element that brings the outfit to a taste level that is on par with the current season. This way, it keeps the element of classic sophistication but then updates it to suit the current times.

You can easily shine in classic houndstooth by pairing it with nothing but slick, solid black – but in the event that you feel like upping your print game to a higher level of complexity, the more fearless you choose to be, the better.

I chose to wear mine with a flare sleeved top and pencil pants for some grown woman vibes.

Then I later removed the top and simply wore it over the pants with a scarf tied on my neck. How dope is this second look as well? Let me know in the comments if you know who that gorgeous woman is 😊
