Spring Houndstooth

The clocks have been set forward an hour; flowers are beginning to bloom. Spring has arrived, barely — the air’s still a bit chilly.  And I have a serious crush on houndstooth.

I love houndstooth.  I think it’s the dignified, ladylike Queen-Elizabeth-Jackie-O aspect that appeals.  Something about a lady on the street and all that.  At any rate, the pattern is an elegant choice for a light spring jacket, adding structure to the soft spring color palette and florals.

So, obviously, these are houndstooth coats, from a variety of virtual shopkeepers.  I’m partial tothe longer, unbuttoned coats, myself, but of course there’s a style for every taste.  Some, like Aoharu and Bijou, offer houndstooth coats in different lengths.  Muism has two sleeve length options.Modern Gypsy offers a full line of houndstooth coat styles, as well as dresses.
