Houndstooth and Tweed Prints

My Vintage Vogue is an awesome website with a collection of images that chronicle fashions from the 1920's to 1960's.  I've always loved vintage fashion photography, and this site is a great resource for inspiration! The photo above titled "Race Track Fashions" by Nina Leen is from a 1958 issue of LIFE Magazine.  Check out the My Vintage Vogue blog  for more photos.

I'm totally digging the clothing in this picture. The mixed check, houndstooth and plaid prints are still in style- just check out the modern interpretations of this retro fad below!
