Dunnes houndstooth mini

Fashion works in cycles and retro is always in, but loud fabric patterns are all the rage on the runway today.

Tartan, paisley and plaid are having somewhat of a resurgance of late. Thanks to shows like Mad Men, movies like The Help and the return of 'Mod', everything retro is in style right now.

This houndstooth mini is absolutely on point, a lovely new addition to the Dunnes Stores collection, hitting shops over the next week.

The mini-skirt, with leather detailing at the waist and pocket lines, comes in at €18 and is really wearable and changeable. Dress it up with a crisp white blouse and tailored blazer for the office or with a clashing print or two to make it more casual.

Paired with a simple black vest for a night out, this mini may just be a statement piece in your autumn/winter wardrobe.
