Want to take your houndstooth to the next level? Think about mixing prints for added impact. Fall calls for versatile layers, so I opted for a denim shirt under a green tartan blazer. The result? An unexpected pairing that compliments the geometrical houndstooth in both shape and colour.

Want to know the best part? I had all of these pieces in my wardrobe from previous seasons... If you hoard clothing like I do, you might be surprised by what you find lurking in the dark recesses of your closet too. If not, I hope this inspires you to think outside the box while shopping for fall staples, and to hold on to those pieces for as long as possible because fashion is nothing if not cyclical. The proof? This dress is about six years old. Mind blowing.

Happy Houndstooth Week, friends! xx
