The ‘Please me’ singer wore a gorgeous Chanel look – here’s how you can get it for less

Houndstooth, a print that originated in Scotland in the mid-19th century, has become a timeless classic, loved by such style icons as  Audrey Hepburn  and  Princess Diana.  And the onetime menswear pattern is more modern than ever this season – just ask  Cardi B , who was spotted at Paris Fashion Week sporting a $9,200 houndstooth coat by  Chanel,  giving us the outerwear inspo we needed this season.

The singer arrived at the Grand Palais rocking a head to toe black and white Chanel look, complete with a $2,750 fedora and $10,000 wide-leg checkered suit. But that coat was the highlight of the luxe outfit, chic and versatile enough to elevate any outfit from office wear to jeans. But we’re guessing not everyone has the cash to splash, so here are some houndstooth coat options with a lower price tag.
