Also known as houndstooth check or dogstooth, this is a duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes. The most popular print of houndstooth is the black and white combo which I believe has a classy yet clean look to it. Houndstooth is not limited to black and white only as nowadays you can get it in any other two colors combo.
Houndstooth print is not limited to just clothes. You can find almost anything in houndstooth…all sorts of accessories. From belts, to bags, to earrings, watches, shoes, hats…even furniture and bed sheets ….name it!
PS: The very tiny houndstooth pattern is referred to as puppytooth.
As you rock your houndstooth, be careful not to overdo it. One houndstooth piece at a time will work just fine as houndstooth really stands out on its own.
Pair your houndstooth item with whatever you feel like (shoes, accessories) just as long as it’s not another houndstooth piece and you won’t take away all the attention from your houndstooth piece and you are good to go.
