Houndstooth (or 'dogtooth', as some of us know it) is going to be huge next season: a great way to break up swathes of black or block colour, they bring a stylish monohchrome hit to your look.

Best known as a print for ladylike, delicate footwear, houndstooth has now been used to decorate all kinds of footwear from fierce flatform creepers to towering skyscraper heels. Check out a few of our top pics in the gallery.
