Tooth of the dog

Six of the best dogtooth outfits

1 Warehouse bag, pounds 14.99, and John Lewis umbrella, pounds 9.95 A simple bag for that splash of dogtooth if you don't want a whole outfit in it, and, similarly, a modish brolly to keep off the drizzle. John Lewis enquiries on 0171-629 7711

2 Dorothy Perkins, jacket pounds 39.99 and skirt pounds 19.99 The suit worn by Helena Christensen in the ad campaign. Many of the high street shops, from M&S to Karen Millen, have a similar look, but this viscose number is easiest on the wallet. Enquiries 0171-291 2604

3Whistles, pounds 195 Single-breasted, beautifully cut stretch jacket, teamed with flat-fronted trousers (pounds 95) with jodhpur seams and turn-ups. The check is small enough to be described as puppy tooth. Enquiries 0171-487 4484

4Warehouse, pounds 89.99 Dogtooth double-breasted jacket to mid thigh. A neat, fashionable coat that may not entirely block out the winter chill, but will be a great little update to any wardrobe. From Warehouse branches nationwide. Enquiries 0181-910 1400

5 Burberry, jacket pounds 360 and trouser pounds 145 This single-breasted two-button jacket is fully lined with matching slim leg trousers. Together they make up a classic sensible suit to last and last. From Burberry, 165 Regent Street, London W1 (0171-734 5928)

6 Georges Rech, pounds 315 The kick pleats give this wool dress a little twist on the average shift, and the size of the check gives it a dynamic edge. Pricey, but well constructed. From Georges Rech, 181-182 Sloane Street, London W1. Enquiries 0171-235 3343
