Houndstooth is everywhere this season and I’m loving the fact that black and white plaid will give my ‘all black’ winter wardrobe a striking new look.
Made classic by Dior, the dogtooth pattern featured as a trend in the 40’s, 60’s and 80’s is now back for 2009 with a contemporary new twist. A great way to don on the trend is to accessorise with a dogtooth scarf. It instantly transforms plainer outfits and keeps off the winter chill.
My ultimate fave though has to be our black and grey dress by Red Herring. Cinched in at the waist this fabulous style creates a figure-flattering silhouette whilst the dogtooth pattern is sure to get you noticed.
Where outerwear is concerned, the Red Herring coat above is great for working houndstooth and the cocoon coat trend all at the same time. It’s definitely THE coat to have this season.
Not just for women, the dogstooth pattern can be seen in men’s fashion too. Debenhams’ selection of flat caps and Baker Boy caps will give your outfit a cool and stylish edge. In fact, we’re all saying Hurrah for houndstooth!
- If you’re going to wear the dogtooth trend, make sure you don’t over do it, mix and match with plain separates for a sophisticated look
- Don’t just stick to black and white, there are other accent colours like hot pink for something a little bit different
