Houndstooth is a material most often associated with fall or winter—you surely have a great houndstooth scarf or jacket in your cold weather wardrobe, right? But Usher is making the black and white trend look super fresh for warmer weather, as he wore head-to-toe houndstooth at the 2019 ESPY Awards, held on July 10 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
The R&B crooner was at the sports-centric awards show to present the Pat Tillman Award to former U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Kirstie Ennis. And as per usual, Usher made quite a stylish statement on the red carpet and inside the theater, rocking a long-sleeved houndstooth shirt and matching cropped pants in the very same print. He finished off his look with black loafers and a pair of sunglasses.
How can you wear houndstooth this summer without going overboard? Garmany’s style experts recommend wearing the checkered print in moderation. We love the houndstooth blazers from Kiton for the office, a pair of houndstooth pants from Rag & Bone, or a tie from Isaia.
