Move over Plaid… It’s Houndstooth Time!

It’s time to get your chic on ladies and what’s ultra chic for this season is everything HOUNDSTOOTH! From coats, to sweaters, to skirts, shorts, shoes… it’s all about the houndstooth pattern.  I was a smart girl and I got myself a few pieces with this print last winter and I had no idea back then, that this will be “the pattern to have” this season.

And don’t think I stopped there! I have been buying pieces with this print LIKE CRAZY this past month (thank you online shopping!). I even wear a houndstooth sweater in the office today :).




In case you didn’t know, at first, the print came in woven wool cloth and was only in black and white colors.  It  has evolved over the years, and now comes in different colors on a variety of fabrics. It  is a duo-tone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes.

I was seeing a lot of this print on the runway shows of designers like Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Thom Browne.

Aren’t you glad this print made a huge comeback?!

    • I really like this print. It’s so elegant, I have a dress that’s black with just a hint of houndstooth on the top and it instantly makes it look so stylish, even though it’s just a little black dress.
