I’m quite fond of houndstooth prints during the colder months. The broken checks pattern is so graphic, classic, and chic. If you’ve been reading the september issues of your favorite magazines, you’ve already noticed that houndstooth is going to be especially popular this fall.
Since this is an anniversary week for this blog, I decided to dig into the Economy of Style archives to extract some of my favorite past houndstooth outfits.

I no longer own this Banana Republic dress. I donated it because I felt it was too short to teach in.
I kinda wish I hadn’t done that o_O

I still own everything in this outfit. I’ll definitely be wearing this older skirt from The Limited
a lot this fall.
As soon as it gets a little cooler, I’ll be wearing my older houndstooth skirt from the The Limited. Here’s one of the ways I’ll probably style the skirt this fall.
|Shirt—The Limited, Skirt—The Limited (newer version), Shoes—Tahari via Marshalls
Belt—Michael Kors via Marshalls, Cardigan—Loft
New houndstooth purchase: The Limited houndstooth split-V blouse. The Limited hosted a scratch and save offer in stores recently. I scratched a 40% off coupon and decided to buy this blouse and a neon crewneck sweater that’ll pair well with it.
Will you be rocking houndstooth prints this fall?
That is cute, nice classic piece. I'm really trying to avoid The Limited, this is not helping.
Girl…stay clear. I was actually there to return something and the store associate at the counter handed me that darn scratch and save card. Let's just say, I decided to stick around for a bit. Lol.
I love houndstooth.. I actually bought a pair of thrifted shorts not too long ago. I had no idea that it was going to be a fall trend! I will be looking for a houndstooth skirt/dress for my wardrobe.
By the way I love how you styled the skirt with the striped shirt… too cute!
That pairing will look awesome!
Love ALL four of these looks, but number 2 in particular!
I LOVE Houndstooth. I can't wait to bring out my Houndstooth trench.
