Be creative and go beyond the classic "black n white"

Any accessory in houndstooth is usually bold. It is advisable to keep it simple when using houndstooth accessories. Without much ado, here are some few tips for those curious about wearing houndstooth.

* First of all, don’t wear more than two houndstooth accessories on a dressing. Well, depending on the individual, one could break the rules to make fashion statements, but don’t just look outrageous.

At least two houndstooth pieces are ideal on a dressing. But you can explore further

* For a classic look, pearls, black or red heels with matching clutch purses may blend well on any houndstooth dress. But we want to see ladies get more creative than that.

*For instance, one could try blue jeans with a black snug crew neck sweater, and some houndstooth muffler round the neck! A matching mitt is optional. We’re still in wintry season, aren’t we?

*If you’ve got a black bodycon dress with matching heels on you, try out a houndstooth clutch, handbag or purse. But avoid throwing in more than two houndstooth pieces at a time.

*There’s nothing as sexy as a houndstooth pencil skirt. Try it on a black chiffon blouse, with really nice heels. This may be ideal for tall, dark and curvy ladies.

*For leggy ladies out there (and I’ve got Keela, Martha and Zuri in mind), you could get a houndstooth pleated skirt and pair it with a nice pantyhose. To add some sensual note, get sheer pantyhose (if you’re light in complexion).

*For occasions like Sunday morning service, a simple houndstooth “swing” jacket may be ideal with black skirt and matching stilettos. This will give the lady a smart cosmo look.

On a final note, avoid mixing colours except for your red lips. Since houndstooth print is duotone, to keep that classic look, ideally monochrome colours are best in order to set off the beauty of the fabric. Also, your coiffure matters a lot. Keep it sheeny. Like I noted earlier, be simple and chic.
So ladies, go out there and make a bold statement with your houndstooth dress or accessories!

I’ve got a question. Does houndstooth print sit well on guys? We’ll be back next week with some juicy post! Don’t miss it!!!
