Hot For Houndstooth

Along with leopard, florals & plaid, houndstooth is a print that regularly resurfaces in fashion - this year in particular, there was an abundance of the graphic pattern all over Fall 2012 runways.  It gives off a slightly preppy vibe, but when mixed dressed-down basics or edgy accents, the result is completely modern.  Here are my affordable picks (all under $65) for those looking to add some to their wardrobe this fall:

I love houndstooth, too, and just saw this skirt in F21 today! It looks very professional despite it being inexpensive! I might have to continue to build my houndstooth obsession.

I have a peplum top just like the first one! Mine is from Asos. I did an outfit post on it last Friday. Check it out if you get a chance! Love the pencil skirt. Love the idea of slimming panels. Who doesn't love that?

I'm so glad to see houndstooth is back! Nothing like a bold black & white print. xx

So, so great and that sweatshirt is awesome in houndstooth... what a cozy yet chic style! And, the skirt, and the peplum, ok all of it. Though I'm really dying for the London Times houndstooth drop waist. Amazing.

I've been obsessed with houndstooth for years -- in fact, I pretty much wear black and white (with pops of red or pink) to work daily! Guess I should diversify a bit, but I just love it... can't help it! Love all your finds.
