Blake Lively stepped out in New York City last week wearing a Smythe houndstooth coat, and we have to say -- we're big fans. The black and white print hasn't been getting much love in recent years, with plaid ruling the runway, but we're supportive of a houndstooth comeback (and so, apparently, is Blake Lively).

We're assuming it's no coincidence we spotted the trend on the runway at DKNY during New York Fashion Week, all done up in cobalt blue. There's no need, however, to wait all the way 'til fall to rock the trend.
