Houndstooth Dress Two Ways

I love houndstooth. It’s such a classic pattern I doubt it will ever go out of style.

I thought I’d style my new dress a couple of different ways so see if I could make my dress look fresh. First, I wore bright blue shoes and a black cardigan.

Dress: H&M
Cardigan: Target
Faux Suede Shoes: Payless
Vegan Purse: Crystalyn Kae

Then, I tried the opposite: A blue cardi and black shoes, er, boots.

Cardigan: Target
Pleather and Neoprene Boots: DSW

The boots help take my dress into fall. Next up: Tights and a jacket. I think I could even wear a turtleneck under this dress and mix up the look even more.


I’m joining Visible Monday for a link-up today. See what all the others are wearing!

    Houndstooth is classic. This is a great shape of dress and I love the cobalt with it, I think it looks great both ways !

    Perfect either way … I’m loving it with those really excellent black boots especially. So pretty, you in that great dress. I’ll bet you think of a lot more ways to wear it!

    LOve those boots…I want some…they would look great under my trousers to work

  6. LOVE the short hair look. Houndstooth is such a classic, as for which I like better it’s a toss up. Both are amazing.

  7. I do love houndstooth – such a great pattern with a little mod vibe.
