Houndstooth is super big right now, and since it's timeless, I can't really feel too bad if I spend a little bit more on it. What a great look to wear to work, on the weekend, or to take on a short vacation. For a little more fun than basic black, I love the two-toned belt to wear with all my black and neutral shoes.
For a little extra fun, and to stay on top of the trends, I threw in a lace headband. Find it all at JCrew.
