You already know it comes to shopping I like to invest in pieces that I plan wear for the forseable future. My closet is filled with items that I can, and do, wear on repeat. I think of it as maximizing my money. Like why spend a lot on something you’re only going to wear a handul of times? It just doesn’t make sense to me. Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every single piece you add to your wardrobe has to be intentionally purchased but from experience majority of clothes that I’ve taken time to consider ultimately end up being something I wear for years! One such piece is this houndstooth coat. I’ve only had it for a little over a year but I already wear it nonstop to spice up my winter and spring outfits. It’s a timeless pattern and fit that goes with so many different pieces. So I’m sharing a bunch of houndstooth coat outfit ideas with you to help you get more wear out of your clothes and show you the importance of buying with intention!
The Everyday Look
A Dressier Take
Another fun way to wear your houndstooth coat is layered over a dress. If wearing print already feels overwhelming then stick to a dress in a neautral color. Black will give you a very slimming effect. For something more unexpected reach for white because it really brightens up the outfit for winter. When the weather is cooler I wear maxi dresses but a shorter style would be equally chic. Either way finalize the look with a pair of over the knee boots. Not does it look amazing, it will also help to keep your legs warm!
