Hot for Fall: Houndstooth

Julianna MarguliesIt's always a good idea to keep houndstooth in your wardrobe.

The classic print rotates regularly into fashion, and this fall, it's back with a vengeance.

Celebrities like Julianna Margulies (pictured at the left before a recent David Letterman appearance) have been spotted in houndstooth, while actress Evan Rachel Wood caused a stir recently in a gorgeous black suit paired with houndstooth pumps.

In general, I like houndstooth as an accent to your wardrobe, rather than a head-to-toe look. I have a matching houndstooth jacket and skirt, but I never wear them together.
