Checkerboard is in this season
From time to time a pattern explodes and holds it’s own through many seasons. Right now, that one is checkerboard. These high contrast monochrome tones of black and white geometric checks are everywhere. Forecasted to be on trend well into this year, this super popular print is still going strong. With hints of vintage and nostalgia being all the rage right now, this pattern is being featured on clothing, outerwear and even accessories. We also saw the resurgence of Checkerboard in the top rated Netflix series, The Queen’s Gambit. The high demand pattern has been featured in nearly all of the designers shows and we’re still seeing it well into winter.
Stan Studio has a full length coat and handbag is the symmetrical style. We also saw pieces from Mango and luxury fashion houses like Gucci, Valentino and Burberry with their versions of this modern classic.
Plaids in general have been trending widely recently but during Winter seasons, and this Checkerboard is a fun alternative plaid to your usual tartans.
Style this trend by adding a pop of color to make a statement. For a bold look, try mixing different prints. You can even balance it out with a solid. Combine scales for a little pattern play. Wear black or white knee high boots with a dress or skirt for a retro chic vibe. If the dizzying squares are too much for you but you’re still obsessed with this trend, then use it as an accent with a bag or shoes in a smaller dose.
