1. Love Me Knot
The top-knot-headband look is still going strong, so double down on the trend with this Lele Sadoughi Orange Houndstooth Knotted Headband ($65). It pumps up the black-and-white design with poppy orange and will add a touch of prep to any outfit.
These leather-lined Houndstooth Pointy Toe Maya Boots by J. Crew ($228) are fiercer than your everyday fall footwear, but the classic color scheme means that they’ll go with everything in your closet.
3. Cover Story
Ward off the autumn chill in style in this Jocelyn Faux Teddy Bomber with Black Collar and Pockets ($365). The fluffy trim will keep you warm; the graphic print and bomber shape will keep you looking cool.
4. Top It Off
Pair this Sleeveless Smocked Neck Houndstooth Blouse by Vince Camuto ($79) with a sleek blazer for work, then toss the jacket for after hours. Its bare sleeves and breezy silhouette are totally date-worthy.
5. Watch Out
Strap on some Kate Middleton–esque sophistication with the Women’s Houndstooth Watch by Kohl’s ($20). It offsets a lightweight silicone frame with a houndstooth print and matching graphic clockface.
6. Power Dressing
Your mother’s work dress, this ain’t. The Riley Puff-Sleeve Houndstooth Dress by LINI ($248) takes the macro print and adds a cinched waist, ruffled sleeves, and a flirty hem.
