Houndstooth Blazer

Ahead of the Curve Bloggers is a collective of plus-size bloggers of varying shapes, sizes and styles. Once a month we choose a new fashion theme and show you different interpretations of it on our blogs. This month we are styling Tartan, Tweed, and Houndstooth .

This is a 80’s houndstooth blazer that I actually blogged about a few months ago. I love the double breast buttons and oversized shoulder pads! This is a piece I’ll never get tired of wearing because the print is so versatile and there are many ways to style it.

Below are some Houndstooth & Plaid inspiration

Iconic Inspiration: M.I.A

 

This look is inspired by artist M.I.A.. I’ve been a fan of both her music and style for many years now. In her latest video “Double Bubble Trouble” she wears an alphabet-print Moschino (circa 1990s) jacket and pants, paired with bright orange socks. I found a top that resembles the same print and paired black skinny pants, a studded fringe bag, and silver oxfords.
