Houndstooth is a huge pattern for fall and winter. As I looked up the history of houndstooth, I read that it is also referred to as dogstooth, or puppytooth when it comes in a really small version. Typically a warm weather pattern, houndstooth is very versatile. Just about any color can be worn with this pattern.
The other day I saw Leighton Meester wearing this Alexander McQueen silk houndstooth blouse. I really, really, really wanted it. It’s only $800. Sure. Let me get out my wallet. I wish. But alas, it’s no longer available for purchase. Anyway, it’s super cute. I haven’t found a (way cheaper) alternate yet.
The Limited has a houndstooth panel shiftdress right now for $89.90. See below.
I also put some outfit and accessory ideas together on Polyvore.
Do you own any houndstooth items? Will you be buying any this fall or winter?
