Street Style: Houndstooth Blazer

Street Style: Houndstooth Blazer
A houndstooth piece is definitely on my wish list. A few weeks ago Polyvore posted one of their Street Style Challenges and it had to revolve around a houndstooth blazer. This is the one I chose. I paired it with skinny jeans, peep toe booties (also something I’d love to invest in), and an asymmetrical clutch. I actually got a similar clutch in cream a few weeks ago which I’ll have to post an outfit with soon.
I decided to put this picture of London in the background, because when I think houndstooth, I think city chic. 2 things come to mind when I think of houndstooth. 1) Retro – For some reason I think of stylish girls walking down the city streets in a houndstooth blazer and matching skirt in the 60s. 2) I think of London and/or retro British mod fashion. My mind also wanders to Sherlock Holmes – probably because I’ve seen one too many Sherlock Holmes Halloween costumes over the years consisting of the houndstooth cap and cape.
What do you think about houndstooth?
