houndstooth

outfit details: Dress (old) from Forever 21 (Similar), Shoes from Aldo,  Jacket from Steve Madden

Today I feel as though I am channeling my inner Cher (from Clueless); you remember, when she is wearing that butterscotch yellow plaid outfit? Well, I suppose I am just taking that outfit concept and updating it a tad!

During the winter season I love wearing prints that look & feel cozy. This houndstooth dress is wonderfully cozy while also playfully chic with the pretty little bow on the front.  The combination of the heavy fabric, bold print and the pretty bow makes this dress a perfect choice for a cozy festive look.

I also love pairing loud prints like this with rich colours like this mustard jacket to create bright, bold, contrasting looks.  Throwing in a brilliantly bright colour to an otherwise monochromatic look is a great way to make a look go from simply styled to eyecatchingly bold.
