Dogtooth checks (also known as houndstooth) are one of those things that seems to have waves of popularity, but never really goes out of fashion. Monochrome is always a classic look and it seems the high street is currently showing some love to the dogtooth check once again. I'm not really ready to talk about autumn but if you like to follow trends for the autumn season, then this one is a classic, so items bought this year can become a good wardrobe basic, and having a few key pieces that you can call on year after year is super.
My thrifty heart urges you to plan ahead and if you're in browsing the vintage or charity shops, start looking around for the dogtooth items now. Pencil skirts, dresses, cardigans - all good staples to have so if you're keen to nab an on trend bargain, start looking on those rails now. If you opt to hit the high street then there are still options that won't break the bank.
