Houndstooth print

It’s a timeless pattern and I first heard about it at my college time, when we needed to get to know more about different materials and patterns, then I had to look up what is called Houndstooth print. Since then I have wanted to buy myself something with that print or pattern. It is just so classic: usually it’s black and white duotone textile pattern characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes. Maybe you know this print as dogstooth or puppytooth. The traditional houndstooth check is made with alternating bands of four dark and four light threads in both warp and weft/filling woven in a simple 2:2 twill, two over/two under the warp, advancing one thread each pass.

Houndstooth checks originated in woven wool cloth of the Scottish Lowlands, but are now used in many other materials. Like my beautiful new skirt (got it from sale with only 10€) – it was just must buy item for me. Also I bought that black knitwear from sale with 10€ and some other pieces. But I thought that this skirt&knitwear combo will be my favourite one and as you know I just had to show it to you my dear readers! Really basic oversized knitwear with skin-tight Houndstooth print skirt and knee high boots is such a classic combo so I had to add that black hat and leather gloves with golden peaks to make it more funky.

Do you like to wear Houndstooth print clothing? or did you already knew before what it is? Comment and let me know!

    2. Great outfit! I love that the houndstooth print ( I call it Pied-de-poule 😉 ) is so big! I own a jacket and a pair of pumps in this print but the print is very small on it. This big one is really nice! I love the silhouette of the slim skirt and oversized sweater very much also! I agree that by adding the gloves the outfit gets a different more edgy look! Love it! xx, Marky
