Whether it’s big or small print, houndstooth trousers are making it past the office and into a more casual setting.
Everyone and their mama are rocking a pair and to be honest, I don’t blame them.
The houndstooth pattern has been planted onto this season’s staple piece – wide-leg trousers.
From the sleek waistline to the flares, these pants allow you to be sophisticated yet trendy.
However, styling Houndstooth trousers may be very tricky, here are some do’s and don’ts.
〰️ Don’t be afraid to show your midriff. Cropped tops or bralettes pair nicely with these pants.
〰️ A loose blouse always complements houndstooth trousers. Always be sure to wear neutral and solid tones.
〰️ Feeling bossy? Throw on a blazer with a camisole underneath and let your pants do the talking.
These patterned bottoms only have one don’t and one don’t only.
Don’t wear additional patterns while sporting houndsooth trousers! For instance, wearing a striped t-shirt with houndstooth bottoms. This is a big no! When you do this, you often take away from the houndstooth print itself.
I opted for a classy pair of high-waisted wide-legged trousers with small houndstooth detailing ($29) accompanied with a basic tank top ($4) and black pointed-toe heels ($26). I then completed this look with dangly gold earrings ($7), my mom’s cuffed bracelet, and a deep red circular purse ($29)
