Steal the Duchess of Cambridge's style by donning this classic pattern this Winter...
We’re constantly coveting the Duchess’ style, and her recent looks certainly do not disappoint. Over the past couple of weeks, Kate has been stepping out in this stunning houndstooth monochrome coat with a high neck. She’s worn it multiple times, from public appearances to shopping in London, making it a great versatile pattern. She looks cosy, but not frumpy; glamorous, but not overdone. It’s safe to say we’re feeling inspired by houndstooth!
Originating in the Scottish lowlands, houndstooth (also known as dogtooth) was traditionally woven into wool, associating it with cooler weather and winter fashion. Although it has always been a firm fashion favourite in the colder months, it’s looking to be a hot trend this month, with Kate spearheading the style.
Although some might associate houndstooth with drab work clothes and men’s suits, it’s actually classic and chic, and no winter wardrobe should be without it. The print looks particularly great on jackets and scarves, but you can also rock this trend on dresses, skirts and trousers. And with so many sizes and colours of houndstooth print to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
