Trend Report: Houndstooth

Hello everyone! 
I recently did a post on houndstooth print on my other blog: HIGH GLAM.
I wanted to post is on here as well, because I just LOVE this trend.
I've invested in 3 houndstooth items as of recently, and I can't wait to show you guys!


Houndstooth is a duotone textile pattern, characterized by broken checks or abstract four-pointed shapes, often in black and white, although other colours are used as well. The classic houndstooth pattern is an example of tessellation.

In my opinion, this is such a classic print, it is elegant, sophisticated & it definitely makes a statement, especially with the black & white contrast! LOVE it! 


Stars who have worn this trend:
Kim Kardashian has been spotted wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo houndstooth dress & a gorgeous cape as well!
The brunette reality star even found a matching giant chair which she snapped a photo of. Clearly, she can't get enough of houndstooth!
Classy lady Claire Danes and Kim's older sister, Kourtney Kardashian were also spotted wearing houndstooth pieces! We just love how Kourt matched her dress with a red vintage Chanel clutch and some fiery lipstick!
Paris Hilton wore a not so flattering version of the current houndstooth trend, and even sported matching tights... which we think is too much! She looks like a granny!
Australian actress Teresa Palmer also chose a look which is popular among models & celebs, with this figure hugging Ferragamo creation!
Lady Gaga and Dita Von Teese both chose an elegant houndstooth creation! Lady Gaga's dress is actually the same one Kim Kardashian wore not long ago, (see the first picture) but of course Gaga didn't stop at one piece of houndstooth clothing, she had to have matching tights, clutch, sunglasses, and even a hat to finish off her look!
And here's the infamous Salvatore Ferragamo dress... AGAIN! Worn by our favorite fashionista Anna Dello Russo and model, Jessica Hart, who paired her frock with a super pretty chunky silver necklace and a black clutch bag!
If you want to be fashionable during winter too, then houndstooth is the answer! Gwyneth Paltrow and a makeupless Hayden Panettiere have both been spotted wearing houndstooth print coats!
If you don't feel comfortable wearing houndstooth, or if you're not that into this trend, try wearing just one piece at a time, or just an accessory, like Ashley Greene and her cute houndstooth bag! We also love Selena Gomez's adorable skirt, which is a super chic way to give a little edge to a simple black outfit!
Gwen Stefani softened up her all-black outfit with houndstooth print leggings, while Evan Rachel Wood chose houndstooth high heels to an event, to match her black & white look!

Salvatore Ferragamo brought houndstooth back into a major trend in 2011!
Several pieces of the classic print were debuted on SF's fall/winter 2011 runway show, and since, they have been a hit with celebrities and models around the world!

And just out of curiosity, do you like this trend? What are your opinions? Would you wear it?


PS - Just for fun; pink houndstooth print nails!
