Even the weather in Colombo yesterday indicated that Summer was over and Autumn has begun, with a gloomy sky and scattered showers. Oh and that massive blooming storm that went on pretty much the whole night. Regardless of that weather, I’ve been itching for Autumn to begin even though I’m in the tropics. How I love digging out my favourite knitwear and boots... also, it means that Christmas is around the corner and I’m always excited for that. 

As we move into the colder months, I’m going to be sharing what trends are going to be at the forefront of the fashion world and to start with, I’m talking about Houndstooth. 

One of the most classic and timeless prints of A/W seasons, the Houndstooth print is going to be either dug out from the back of your wardrobe or added in statement. I personally love this style and have been wearing it for ages (or stealing anything of my mum's that is of the print, as I've done above). I think it gives vibrancy to the muted colours of Autumn Winter, which is why I think it's never gone out of style.

Last year’s Chanel AW19 runway collection showcased houndstooth on houndstooth, alongside other checkered statement prints. For AW20, houndstooth appeared in collections from Saint Laurent, Dior & Versace.

Safe to say that the pattern is a staple and is the front runner in Autumn Winter, with checkered prints following behind. Though you may feel that we’re still in transition time, which we kind of are, I say it’s never too early to start wearing houndstooth wherever you can. Click the images to shop my favourite houndstooth pieces from high street and designer brands. 


Are you a houndstooth lover? Is this a print that never fails to reappear during the A/W seasons? Personally, I love it and I think it's the perfect way to bring something extra to your wardrobe during the colder month. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Sending you lots of love & hoping you're staying safe,

    Out of the AW20 couture runway photos above I especially love the first and fourth outfits in the second row of photos featuring the red houndstooth print blazer-dress by Versace and the houndstooth print mini-dress by Dior.
