Houndstooth: A Fall Favorite

There are certain prints I can't imagine ever banning from my wardrobe. Houndstooth is one of them. I was a teenager when I wore my first houndstooth print garment--a jumper. Suffice it to say, there have been many, many tops, skirts, scarves and more in the favorite print since then. Houndstooth is simple, classic and easy to style, which makes it a great look for women over 50. Scroll down for a sample of houndstooth print fashions and accessories.

Most of my houndstooth prints have been combinations of neutral colors: black and white, black and grey, or black and brown. (Okay, there was once a black and hot pink houndstooth print top in my closet.) When it's time to get dressed, I just grab a top or bottom in one of the houndstooth print's colors and I've got my outfit. This weekend, my husband and I went out for lunch at our favorite Indian restaurant. I love mixing textures, so I grabbed a black lace top to wear with my newest wool-knit houndstooth skirt and black tall boots.  

You'll find a wide assortment of garments and accessories made with a houndstooth print online. Sometimes the print is petite and other times it's huge. There are houndstooth coats, capes, boots, handbags and even iPhone cases. If you'd like to add a little houndstooth to your wardrobe, take a peek at what's online...
