Trend Alert: Houndstooth

Call the look menswear, newsboy, even Oliver Twist, but one thing is clear — heavy, tweedy fabrics built to withstand British weather are everywhere for fall. The hottest of the hot is houndstooth, a usually black-and-white print that might have previously brought to mind visions of bad 80s power suits but should now inspire thoughts of ruddy-cheeked English lasses. The key to this trend is to pick one piece — just one — in houndstooth. Go ahead and mix it up with other tweeds, knits, and patterns, just don’t overload yourself unless you’re heading to the Mad Hatter’s tea party. Here are some of our favorite fall finds…

They seem overly-warm now, but come fall’s first chill you’ll be glad you picked these up. Old Navy’s houndstooth low-heeled pumps are a total steal. Bonus: Finding your size in stores is often a struggle, finding it online at is a cinch. And their shipping is always $5!


Cropped pants are another key look — paired with opaque tights, these Juicy Couture Cropped trousers will take you through a season or three. Available at


Don’t feel you must keep the look subdued. Go crazy with color in a statement-making coat like this one from Anne Klein we found on Nordstrom.comicon.
