look of the week 6

Houndstooth has a distinctly cold-weather feel to me—maybe it's the similarity to holiday tartan or its roots in Scottish wool suiting. Either way, 'tis the season to jump on the patterned-pants bandwagon. In slim trousers, the classic checks lend a preppy flavor that leaves a badass, borrowed-from-the-boys aftertaste. I love that this look is tidy enough for the office and trendy enough for happy hour, without any adjustment. Even though the t-shirt is super cute, I'd wear the jean jacket fully buttoned (or at least fasten the top two) and drape the chunky necklace over the collar, a la Jenna Lyons. These lace-up booties vaguely remind me of work boots, which is a nice complement to the menswear-inspired houndstooth, while the four-inch heel and sleek toe shape clearly keep them feminine. Tuck this leopard clutch under your arm (there's no better investment; you'll find it goes with everything!) and swipe on some Christmas-red gloss for a festive finish (I'm definitely getting in the spirit!). Safe travels to everyone flying and driving today! Hope you make it to your destination without incident or delay.
