DIY Inspiration: Houndstooth

Houndstooth is one of those patterns that seems to make a resurgence every few years, and this fall it’s back in full force. Like plaid, it’s a classic that can look prim or punk, depending on the rest of the outfit. I’ve been seeing it in oversize scales, non-traditional fabrics and colors, and grungy versions that really push it in a hip direction. Here’s some DIY inspiration for cool takes on houndstooth clothing. I’ll be sharing my own interpretation of the trend soon.
