Lola Asymmetrical Pink Houndstooth Swimsuit by Pistol Panties at Clickini

Let me start by staying that I would never wear this swimsuit, mainly because there is no way I could pull it off. However, I have chosen to feature it today as it is an absolutely stunning creation, and a guaranteed head-turner. It also illustrates two points perfectly: 1-the best way to wear a houndstooth print is by choosing it in unusual colours, textures, and garments. 2-a way of mixing prints is to pair the same print in a small version on top and a larger version below.

How To Wear Houndstooth

How to wear Houndstooth - Houndstooth dress and bag by JaegerYes, I know, this is not a Spring/Summer post. It’s been raining a lot and the weather has gone back to cold, so I feel like this is more appropriate. Anyway, moving on…Houndstooth is a great classic print, but it can quite easily make a look dated, especially if it is teamed with tweed or wool. So if you want to avoid this, yet  take advantage of the print’s instant chic appeal, I recommend you look for a modern take on the working wardrobe staple—be it with a slightly altered print or new colours and textures.

For example, these pieces from Jaeger have got it all right. The dress is not only red and white instead of the traditional white and black, but it also made of silk, and the pattern is slightly altered.  It looks feminine, chic, modern and professional.

This bag works because it’s in shiny PVC. I’m always a fan of printed accessories—they make a simple outfit instantly look chic. And this bag would look great with a black dress and houndstooth-print shoes.

The bag isn’t available online anymore, but you might be lucky if you visit one of the many Jaeger stores.
