Houndstooth Scarf

What to Wear With a Houndstooth Scarf to Enhance its Charm

The houndstooth scarf adds style to your clothes, making the most boring combination of jeans and t-shirt look classy. You can experiment a lot with this scarf, and use it to enhance the appeal of your attire and personality.
The houndstooth scarf has a jagged checked pattern that gives it a bold look. This pattern has been around since the 1800s, when it was first used in Scotland. These scarfs have become a popular fashion accessory among both men and women. Though usually found in checks of black and white, newer and vibrant color combinations can also be found. The houndstooth scarf used to be made of 100% sheep's wool, however, now they are available in cashmere, polyester, cotton, mixed wool, and even silk.

Colors to Go in For

The usual black and white scarf tends to get boring after a point, once you have worn it several times and you see others wearing the same. Fortunately there are some really fabulous color combinations such as pink and gray, green and yellow, blue and white, and metallic colors that you can consider. For example, electric purple and silver scarfs with this pattern are my personal favorite! If you search, you are bound to come across some really vibrant color combinations that will make you wanna buy them all! Recent fashion trends have introduced printed houndstooth scarfs, which can be found of fabrics such as soft silk and satin.
