Herringbone-Houndstooth-Pinstripes-Check were a hot trend to preview down the 2013 Fall runway. Models were draped with these classic textiles creating a bold, empowering statement. I have always adored these classic haberdashery fabrics and have incorporated them in several of my own designs over the years.  In my look below I thought I'd exaggerate the check theme by combining pieces from three separate suits that I have designed. (individual suits shown below).  

To follow I have styled some Herringbone-Houndstooth-Pinstripes-Check inspired looks from local retailers. I encourage you to embrace this trend as we enter winter. You'll look incredibly stylish and elegant. All products are available at Highpoint Shopping Centre.
