Houndstooth (also known as dogtooth) is another one of those trends which resurfaces every autumn. It's heralded with a new wave of enthusiasm, like the pattern has not seen seen daylight for years, when in reality it comes around every year with dependable regularity.

So the good news is that it's something which can be invested in, and you can be sure you'll get your money's worth for years to come. I've never bought into the trend, but after finding this skirt in the charity shop, I realised that its of the moment monochrome tie-in, and the ease with which it will complement pretty much any other item of clothing means it works hard for a place in your wardrobe.
