One print/pattern that I’m absolutely drawn to this season is houndstooth. Yes!! This modern-classic print has been seen in various fashion editorials as well as on FW 2014 runways including Balmain, Michael Kors and Stella McCartney. And now I’m happy to incorporate the trend as part of my wardrobe this fall. Thanks to emploi New York!
If you love classy yet comfortable dresses, then you will really appreciate this Jones Dress featuring a chic black-and-white houndstooth pattern. The fit is close to perfection! Its stretchy material is ultra comfortable while hugging your figure in all the right places. The knee-length skirt and the three-quarter sleeves are truly flattering.
A woman stopped me to compliment me on the dress in the middle of the street. A girl never tires of outfit compliments (at least not me!). Do we?
Jones Dress – Houndstooth Black/White
I had such a blast strolling in this dress. I styled mine with nude platform pumps (similar), black quilted satchel, tortoise sunglasses and chain link bracelet. On chilly days, I will change the look by wearing the dress with a wide belt and a pair of knee-high boots (love these!). Oh, and a cozy coat to top it all.
What a versatile, all-season dress to wear to the office. Style it with a blazer and neutral heels during the week, and simply slip on a pair of flats running errands when the weekend comes.
Two more elegant dresses in oh-so-flattering colors and silhouettes – Lexington Long Dress (grey) & Maiden Dress (wine). Be sure to check the size guide provided for each dress when ordering online. I had to go down a size in order to get a better fit.

The sleeveless style gives you a dozen styling options. Layer a different top underneath such as a silky blouse or cozy pullover. Give the sleek gray a contrasting pop with a vibrant shirt and statement necklace. A pair of black mules and oversized clutch complete the look.

What a versatile dress to enjoy year-round! I’m quite pleased with the dress especially the quality of the fabric. It’s stretch yet thick knit is so flattering against the body unlike other clingy knit dresses. This dress is a little generous in size though I might add. I recommend going a size down if you you want the dress to be more form-fitting.

Simply red-hot! Enjoy being a career fashionista in this versatile shift dress with jewel neckline, figure-slimming silhouette, lush texture, and flattering elbow-length sleeves. These colorblock sling backs (beige/black) would make for a sweet pairing to the dress above.
Camila Alves nailed the sophisticated-yet-feminine look. Her pencil dress (similar) stands out on its own with an eye-catching shade of white. Along with her loose braid, a soft cardi and a pair of aviators make the outfit fabulously effortless.
Enjoy this Camila-inspired outfit from the office to the sun-soaked outdoors!
