The timeless houndstooth print is one of the biggest trends to look out for this season. This versatile trend is set to give a new feeling of elegance when it comes to winter dressing in 2020.
If you don’t know, the houndstooth’s two-tone pattern is characterised by its textile design that looks like dog teeth. The design consists of small pointy squares and is usually seen in black and white. The print originated from the Scottish and gradually made its mark in the fashion industry. And today, this striking bold classic print is on trend again!

How to wear the houndstooth trend this winter
The midi dress
Reinvent the midi dress by choosing a bold houndstooth print like this piece from Zara. A belt detail gives the dress an instant eye-catching finish. Team it up with black mid-high boots.
What gives your work look that special touch? A printed double-breast blazer with vintage buttons. Wide-leg black trousers and a polo neck or bow blouse will finish off the look perfectly.
For something different, look out for an A-line fluted shirt. Mix it up with a puffy sleeve detailed top or a faux leather shirt and white ankle boots.
