Houndstooth Heroine

Fierce in design, bold in colour and rich in heritage, houndstooth is back for round two on the fashion circuit! Houndstooth print largely made it’s mark on the current season in the form of  blazers paired with matching mini skirts..but now it’s time to turn your focus to tights!

Pushing the boundaries might be an understatement when it comes to houndstooth tights, however when paired with cool chic basics it might just pleasantly surprise you!

In this week’s blogpost, I’m pairing casual basics with this bold print for an eye-popping effortless look to take you anywhere! When it comes to rocking bold monochrome prints there is a couple of directions you can take your look.

Option one is to play it extremely safe, by teaming either black or white separates. The alternative… is to introduce some lighter accents to give the look a Spring vibe!

Let’s rewind for a minute, the houndstooth tights that I am wearing are available from H & M. Uber economical ($14.95) and high in style, these handy trend setting tights will be just what your wardrobe needs!

They feature an elastic waist and unlike an activewear tight, sit more like a pant when on the body.Next, to keep this look fresh and current, I opted to team this lightweight long-sleeve chambray shirt for a chic finish (available from decjuba) .

Chambray always has its place in fashion and is eternally effortless. The best way to style a basic long sleeve shirt is to leave the two top buttons undone, and the last bottom button undone. Then form a tie with the remaining fabric at the bottom for a polished finish.

Bling your look up by adding a pair of killa statement sneakers for an on-trend finish! The sneakers that I am wearing are available from Kurt Geiger, David Jones.

They feature a miniature platform which makes for a fun and super wearable sneaker. The sneaker trend keeps getting stronger and stronger so investing in a good pair will take you everywhere.

Complete your look with a statement bag and shades plus hair accessories and your insta-ready! Accessoreis will play a key part in brining this look together, you’ve heard the mantra less is more however with this look, more is more!
