Menswear-inspired fashion is everywhere this season, but putting an outfit together and still looking feminine can be tough when choosing manly pieces. The trick is to select items that either have a menswear-inspired cut OR a masculine fabric pattern, but not both.

We think houndstooth is an ideal way to sport the look, especially when you seek out this pattern in non-traditional colors and sizes (like the nearly identical parkas we featured in a recent Taste Test). Take a look at our top five picks for subversive houndstooth. 

This tiered A-line coat ($140) will keep you warm while looking chic this season.

 

Alice + Olivia plays on the traditional black-and-white houndstooth pattern on a smaller scale with these wide waistband pants ($275).

The black-on-black houndstooth pattern of this ABS pleated dress ($170) is a subtle twist on the usual LBD, and it’s a flattering cut.
