My favorite pattern for clothing is houndstooth (I actually love it in accent chairs too). Houndstooth, or Dog Tooth (UK), has come in and out of favor for decades. I was actually beginning to think that houndstooth was extinct but it looks like it might be rolling back in to fashion. So if you have it buried in your closet totes some where now is the time to dig it out and get it ready.
If you are looking for a great piece to add to your wardrobe consider this ASOS Curve Pencil Skirt which at the moment is high on my list of favorites. It comes in sizes 20 to 26 for $43 (US).
I love the look ASOS has created with the black top and shoes. It would look equally smashing with a white top and white shoes. Even though it is a pattern that screams to be center stage I am not above wearing a simple ruffle blouse and red shoes with this skirt or adding a bit of texture like below:
The Dog Tooth Pencil Skirt ($43), Pretty Circle Embroidered Top ($43), Leather Mini Twist Lock Saddle Bag ($26), and the SABRINA High Vamp Shoe ($78) are all from ASOS.
