As the brand Ambassador for American label Coach, this week Gwyneth Paltrow was in town to attend a dinner organised by the label in her honour. Wearing a houndstooth coat with lipstick red heels – Gwynnie chose a striking look compared to her usual paired down style. An unexpected trend to be trialling for autumn/winter, perhaps, but this classic print is one which is set to be massive for the season ahead. So, if we learn anything from Miss Paltrow, let it be this…
- Dare to make print the focus of your outfit
- Avoid neutral accessories that conjure memoires of retro 90’s office wear (and not in a good way!
- If wearing houndstooth head to toe makes you go into print overload then why not go for a cropped skinny trouser or pencil skirt with a crisp white shirt and jacket.
- And, don’t forget the all-important lipstick red stiletto!
