If you’re wondering what the hell is a houndstooth, it is a classic pattern that coined its name after it’s resemblance to the shape of a dog’s tooth. Otherwise called a “shepherd’s check” in the 1930s, the houndstooth pattern was adapted by the wealthy as a symbol of style. It eventually became a favorite motif of Christian Dior, who famously created a pointed court-like shoe featuring the pattern.
