A Tartan Alternative

While tartan is one of the biggest trends of fall 2008, I'm not into it. Even paired with a velvet skirt, classy boots and a leather jacket, it just feels too cowboy to me. I'd much rather don houndstooth as an all-over winter print. Black and white houndstooth feels classy no matter what it's on, and you can buy it in different sizes depending on how bold you're feeling.

Houndstooth is such a common print that you should be able to pick it up easily at a vintage or thrift store.
