About Dogtooth Shorts
While you see the pattern more often in hats and blazers, dogtooth shorts bring a bit of classic flair to any outfit. More traditionally called "houndstooth", the dogtooth pattern is one of the most recognisable. When it features minuscule checks instead of larger ones, the pattern is called "puppytooth". Typically, dogtooth most often uses black and white to contrast the broken four-point tessellation, though other colours are available. Choose bright colour juxtapositions for an even bigger statement. The pattern works for both men's and women's fashions, though more women's shorts use it. Women's shorts tend to combine the timelessness of the pattern with a modern cut, such as a short hem, high waist, or rolled hem. While traditional houndstooth fabric is woven in twill, nowadays manufacturers use lightweight fabrics for shorts. Look on eBay for unique takes on dogtooth shorts. When it gets warm, you?ll look stylish and stay on trend with an ageless pattern.
