Houndstooth is not a pattern that most people have stocked in their closet. This crisp template can be found printed, threaded and painted upon shoes, dresses, jackets, sunglasses and these days even leggings. While being thought of as one of the most elegant and classy designs around, the discussed mysterious stitching has an “older person” connotation. Even though it may be present in countless senior clothing items, just because your grandparents wear it doesn’t mean it’s not in style. In my opinion, it is BEYOND chic. Don’t you remember my grandpa cardigan post? Elder Fashionista/o's can teach us a thing or two.

Houndstooth is one classic pattern that will be forever trendy. Ready-to-wear collections, like the beloved House of Holland line, are presenting houndstooth in ways that make even the most stylish fashion icons ache with infatuation. From sleek pencil skirts to billowy blouses, this epic checkered design slashes and slips its threaded tastefulness into vivid fuchsias and deep plums with neither understated nor overstated elegance. This amount of perfection is ideal for anyone yearning to recreate this craze.

Just because the House of Holland line makes you want to suit up in vibrant hues doesn’t mean that color is the only combination this pattern is presented in. Like the adorable skirt seen on this Fashionista, timeless black and white houndstooth is still extremely stylish. Clothing stores such as NASTY GAL, Modcloth and ASOS frequently host houndstooth in their vast and voluminous closets. One advantage of the prototypal muted color palette is that you can combine it with practically any other pigmentation. United with cream, like this style maven so effortlessly accomplished, or worn along side a pop of robins egg blue like this amazing Tobi blouse, any amount of houndstooth will be sure to make your peers jaws drop. So if you want to add an item into your wardrobe that will be worth the money and definitely worth the wear, try something in houndstooth. Not only will you be looking ritzy and refined, but your patterned ensemble will be radiating so much style that your fellow students will be sure to notice!
