{what to wear} houndstooth

Black and white are two standalone hues that will forever be in style. Put them together and you wind up with the latest of-the-moment print...houndstooth. The chic black-and-white motif manages to be elegant, a touch mod, a little Jackie O, and sophisticated in that European-meets-fashion-week way - all rolled into one. Pair a printed coat with black suede over the knee boots, or allow a small smattering of the combo to sparkle from your fingernails. Regardless of how you wear it, you're in very good company. Here are six of my favorite patterned pieces {Clockwise from Top Right}:

Topshop Maple Pump in Black {$60.00}

Sally Hansen Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Check It Out 240 {$9.00}

Mcginn Katie Houndstooth Shorts {$111.98}

LAUREN Ralph Lauren Rossalyn II in Black / Cream Houndstooth {$79.00}

MICHAEL Michael Kors Houndstooth Front Stretch Cotton Slim Pants {$110.00}

Sara Designs Houndstooth Chain Wrap Watch in Houndstooth / Gold {$98.00}
