Houndstooth is one of the most recognizable textile patterns today. The duotone pattern is famous for its simplistic color scheme, but it can also be its downfall. A red belt works great to add a touch of color to a houndstooth dress. A belt places the color in the middle of the outfit, creating a balanced yet noticeable statement.
When an accent color has already been added, a neutral color goes very well with houndstooth. This woman chose to match her open toed wedges with her handbag, both in tan leather. Very nice!
