Trend Alert: The Houndstooth Pattern

Greetings beautiful people....... :)

You must know by now that i love prints\patterns....and setting the trend of patterns next season is the large checked pattern with notched corners suggestive of a canine tooth or as the French call it, pied de pole (chickens foot). This trend can be seen on everything from coats, dresses, shoes, skirts and many accessories. Believe it or not this classy and chic pattern has been on the fashion scene since the 1800's *shocker* and now its back making a major splash on runways, magazines spreads, celebrities and obviously stores.

How to wear it........ 
  • Since its a busy pattern, i suggest you not mix it up with other prints and pattens.
  • Keep accessories very, silver or pearls

When Salvatore Ferragamo dubbed his A/W 11 collection with a heavy mixture of prints and patterns no one could have anticipated the fashion frenzy the houndstooth would cause and what a success it is, celebs like Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Anna Dello Russo all rocking the long-sleeved dressed.
