Trend of the Week - Houndstooth

Houndstooth Print

I love houndstooth print, it looks refined and rock-chic at the same the time. Originated in Scotland, the two-tone fabric is made up of uneven checks. I prefer the combination of black-and-white, any other colour in this print just doesn't have the same effect. 

Houndstooth can be incorporated into your wardrobe in small doses. Start with a shoe, handbag or belt, move on to a jacket or skirt and if you're bold enough, wear a complete houndstooth outfit. But remember to balance it off with neutral accessories. This Tuesday, three starlets started what I hope is going to be a re-emergence of the houndstooth trend. 

Selena Gomez was in New York on Tuesday for an interview on SiriusXM Radio. The young star wore a cute pair of black and white houndstooth shorts by Nuj Novakhett. She paired it with a sheer black long-sleeved top by Robert Rodriguez. Black mid calf boots kept her look casual.

Ashley Greene attended the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 presentation in New York, also on Tuesday. The Twilight star wore a belted ivory dress with v-neck and emphasized shoulder detail. She added a touch of houndstooth with a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch bag. The contrast of the ruby red heels look fabulous.

Teresa Palmer also attended the Salvatore Ferragamo show, wearing an outfit by the designer. The Australian actress chose a bold black and white houndstooth wrap-dress from Ferragamo's Fall 2011 collection. She wore simple black heels with it and held a silver clutch bag.

I particularly love Blazers and Jackets that have the houndstooth trend.
