I found this vintage Adolfo jacket on ebay recently and it inspired me to do an all black-and-white houndstooth outfit. This combination reminds me of the 2009 Alexander McQueen collection which was inspired by Dior’s New Look.

One of the easiest ways to mix prints is to use the same print in different sizes.

(jacket: vintage Adolfo; skirt: Trina Turk; shoes: Tommy Hilfiger; cuffs: JCrew)

I also put together a more casual look by with jeans and a loose tank-top and used the jacket to add structure.
