HOUNDSTOOTH DRESS

So let us begin with a houndstooth dress shall we! The perfect spring dress in my opinion, so easy to style. The dress that I am wearing is from Rixo and after having missed the opportunity to purchase it when it first came out, I was extremely disappointed. Now after accidentally putting my houndstooth Rixo blouse in the wash (I know) I was looking online to see if I could find another one. The blouse did not show up however, this houndstooth dress did, just had to make sure they had it in my size!

Now when it came to styling this dress I opted to go for the monochromatic look. So first up I paired the dress with my white court shoes. Next I grabbed my Shrimps black and white bag which works beautifully with the dress. Of course I had to choose my white cat-eye sunglasses. Finally completing the look with a bold red lip.

The outfit below is another way to style the houndstooth dress. Here I have gone for all white accessories, by all means style it however you please!

 

 

 

BLAZER IN HOUNDSTOOTH

Moving on and onto my next look, this time with a houndstooth blazer. I decided to go for a Co-Ord and match the blazer with a skirt. A two piece always looks so much more put together. Why not add a simple white tee under the blazer for a daytime look. Next opt for a pair of loafers like I have here, perfect for spring. Loafer are going to everywhere this season. My choice of bag would be a small cross body one and then finishing off the outfit with a pair of sunglasses.

 

 

 

SHORTS IN HOUNDSTOOTH

For my third outfit I went for a pair of shorts, I don’t know about you but I absolutely love to wear shorts during the spring summer months. I do love a pair of high waisted shorts and these ones here are just fabulous. Again I have gone for a Co-Ord as it looks so much more polished and put together. Add a bodysuit or a plain tee under the blazer, next put on some espardrilles, they scream spring summer to me and are my most worn during those months. Moving onto the bag and here I have chosen a black bag but you could go for a colour of your choice. Finally completing the outfit with a pair of black sunglasses.

 

 

So which of the above outfits would you wear? How would you go about styling a houndstooth piece? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.

    I’m a huge fan of houndstooth and love seeing how you styled it here. For some reason it reminds me of the dresses Audrey Hepburn wore in My Fair Lady – and I LOVE it. Houndstooth is so classic, but it can also be so much fun. The other outfit ideas you put together are super creative as well 🙂

    Normally I think of houndstooth as a winter print, but there are pieces out now (like this dress!) that make it very spring-appropriate! Love!

    I saw houndstooth styled last winter as we moved into spring (and the virus) and I bought a houndstooth blouse to try it myself. Need to get that blouse back out. You look absolutely stunning in this gorgeous dress, those sleek shoes and that bag.

    All of the other looks are perfection, too. Especially like the blazer and bag you paired with it.

    This outfit is giving me Beyonce vibes! You definitely rock this, it’s stunning on you!
