The Houndstooth Suit: All Business

When we think of business attire, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a solid color suit – think navy or charcoal grey. And unless you’re talking about pinstripes, patterns don’t always factor in to the workplace wardrobe. I’m not sure why that is, but you shouldn’t be afraid to add a little pattern to your office style.

When I say “little pattern,” I literally mean little pattern. As we’ve mentioned, a small-scale houndstooth is the perfect way to start incorporating patterns into your suit game. It’s noticeable up close, but from a distance it almost appears solid.

Brown and burgundy are a natural match for each other – both are rich and earthy. Use a lightweight silk scarf to add a dapper accent and some depth to a two-piece suit when it’s warm enough to go without a coat.
