Coordinating Your Look

Houndstooth is a popular print for a purse.

Houndstooth is a versatile fabric. It can be worn with many looks from jeans to dresses. One style tip is to choose only one houndstooth item at a time to wear. Make your houndstooth purse be the stand-alone item you wear, and it will stand out and make a fashion statement. A printed purse can dress up a plain outfit and pull the look together in a stylish way.

Some ways to wear your houndstooth fashion purse are:

  • Tired of your old work clothes, give them a fresh look with a trendy accessory such as a houndstooth purse. Choose one in a color such as red to accent your attire.
  • Carry a houndstooth purse when wearing a pair of jeans and a plain sweater. The ensemble will look simple yet chic.
  • Accent a classy black suit with a houndstooth purse to look fashionable. Search for a small print to pull off a classic style. When used as an accent, houndstooth can appear sophisticated and make you look pulled together.
  • A black and white houndstooth purse looks great when worn with a black wool jacket.

Final Thoughts

Be careful with what you wear when carrying a houndstooth purse. This print goes with a lot of looks but can clash with other prints and tweeds.
