Why Houndstooth is In Trend
One reason the pattern is so popular is that there are many different tones of houndstooth. The pattern can be made out of many different colours, for example black and white, a classic one, black and brown, navy and grey, pale pink and yellow, light blue and white. The lighter houndstooth is very good for wearing with the summer and spring seasons. The lighter tone of Houndstooth also works well when combined with other patterns such as check pattern or plaids. It makes a great combination with stripes as well.
There are many fashion icons that have made houndstooth a fashion trend. The most famous fashion designer is probably Coco Chanel. She helped make houndstooth “THE” fashion item to have in the thirties. Many blazers, skirts, and dresses were seen on the streets of Paris at this time. Another well-known designer that used houndstooth is Yves St Laurent. He was one of the best fashion designers ever and actually admitted that he was influenced by Coco Chanel when he designed his first houndstooth collection.
