HoundsTooth

Feb 21, 2021 | Outfits

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

Like all coats, the easiest way to style them is over a top and pair pants. A beginner take would be to pair your houndstooth coat with a white sweater, jeans and sneakers. To add a bit more edge that will make people do a double take, swap out your jeans for a pair of white leather pants. Have fun here. You can do a more fitted pair like I’m wearing or a little fashion forward with a wide leg pair. To add a bit of height reach for shoes that are white as well. This gives you the illusion of long legs! Finish off the look with accessories that makes sense for your activity. If you’ll be outside some gloves and a cute headback to keep warm.

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!

The Traffic Stopper

An unexpected way to wear your houndstooth coat is layered under a crop jacket. This is look is just a more advanced take on the first outfit. You can keep your base the same with a top and pants, layer your coat over then find a shorter coat to put on. It’s super simple yet something a lot of people don’t think to do. Not only is it a great way to make your outfit unique, but you add texture and an extra layer for warmth which is so necessary during winter.  

I love when something I purchased on a whim turns out to be something I wear all the time and I really get my money’s worth out of it. Houndstooth is such a classic, fun pattern that you’ll find yoursef wearing year after year. Hopefully you’re inspired by these new ways to style your coat!
