Wearing big chunks of houndstooth in the form of a coat or dress is so 2009 (we're just being honest, here). But, rocking the black and white pattern in small doses is all kinds of chic. For example, Alexa Chung looked crazy-cool sporting the retro '80s style in the form of sunglasses to Erdem's London Fashion Week show at the University of Westminster on Feb. 21. Want to try the look for yourself? Slip these on for size...
