Ew. This reminds me of bad 80s clothing....big shoulder pads and big hair.

Houndstooth was very in last autumn here, in France. Crop jackets, short capes, classy coats, trench coats, skirts, trapeze dresses, shift dresses, etc. Yet, it was already a lot less fashionable by January. I think everybody had an overdose of it here! I would be very surprised if it still is "in" for upcoming autumn.
