Houndstooth! Oh My!

I have to say one of my favorite things about fashion is when a favorite print of mine comes back into style. Although I must say, Houndstooth, in my humble opinion, never goes out of style! For all of you in love with the black and white, or any color for that matter, this is the season to stock up on timeless pieces for your closet! Houndstooth is back with a vengeance and is taking over your department stores!
Houndstooth ( also known as hounds tooth check or dogstooth) originated in a woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands. It is a duo tone textile with broken checks pattern or abstract four pointed shapes. Typically black and white but other colors are increasingly popular.

Houndstooth is mostly used in jackets and outerwear but can be readily found in dresses, purses, shirts, scarves, you name it, I am sure you will find it!
Here is a collage of some of my fave looks for this timeless pattern!
