It amazes me how different clothes, patterns and styles come in and go out of fashion. As an 80’s kid, I can remember some of the current styles the first time round, though they’re much less frightening now. The Houndstooth pattern, however, is one of those classic patterns that never goes out of style. It’s a very grown up style, that I never thought I would feel grown up enough to wear but I do now, especially for work. People Tree have a great range of smart, organic cotton Houndstooth clothing this autumn that are great for work. Paired with one of their Rashida Roll Neck jumpers, a lovely thick pair of tights and a smart pair of vegan brogues, and you’ve got yourself a smart, stylish, ethical outfit.
1. Rashida Roll Neck Jumper Black £68 // 2. Rashida Roll Neck Jumper Winter White £68 // 3. Houndstooth Asymmetric Skirt £95 // 4. Houndstooth Shift Dress £125 5. Houndstooth Print Top in Black £38
As you would expect with People Tree, all their clothes are made using organic cotton, are fair trade and support #whomademyclothes. It’s worth paying a bit more, especially for something like the shift dress, which is handwoven, that will stand the test of time. Houndstooth is one of those patterns that will come in and out of fashion so it’s worth having something that will last. I have the (c/o) Rashida Roll Neck jumper in black, thanks to the lovely guys at People Tree and I love it. It’s warm and comforting and one of those classic styles that goes with everything from work clothes to dog walking clothes, especially if you’re popping to the pub on the way home.
