Checkered clothes are proving to be a popular trend right now. From the runways of Louis Vuitton to the high street stores, checkered clothes are really making their mark. The look is a little bit retro but with plenty of modern potential. Whether it’s a top, dress or trousers, you’ll definitely be on-trend in checkered clothes this season. Check out a few on-trend checkered clothes, below.
1 Checkered Camisole
Checkered clothes come in all shapes and sizes and one of the easiest ways to wear this trend is in the form of a simple top. This checkered camisole is a stylish option. Dress one up by teaming it with cigarette style pants, heels, and a compact clutch. For something edgier, wear it with a leather-look skirt and ankle boots. You can grab this camisole for around $50 at Topshop but if you’ve got a bit of extra cash to burn check out Tibi for a cool black and white number.
2 Checkered Pants
Make your next pair of statement pants of the checkered variety. You could choose a neutral pair or something more colourful – it’s up to you. These taupe pants by J.Crew have more of a grid pattern, but are a splurge at $380. You can, however, find more affordable options online at ASOS or Modcloth. Checkered pants would look great teamed with a basic silk blouse and patent pumps.
3 Checkered Dress
Work a mod-inspired look in a fun checkered dress this season. From Vivienne Westwood to Rag & Bone to Topshop, there are checkered dresses to suit a range of budgets. This particular retro-looking dress is from Nasty Gal and will set you back just under $60. Team it with a messy beehive hairdo and smoky eye makeup for a rebellious retro look.
4 Full Checkered Skirt
Work a preppy look in a full checkered skirt. Wear them with fitted tops and ladylike pumps to work a feminine outfit. Finish the look off with a polished hairdo and some winged eyeliner. You can spend on cute skirts by the likes of Marni and Kate Spade or save at stores like Topshop and ASOS.
5 Fitted Checkered Skirt
If you like your checkered clothes bold and daring, try wearing a fitted skirt like this one from Modcloth. Dress it up for a night out on the town with a loosely tucked-in blouse, ankle boots, and small side bag. This skirt is a bargain at under $30 and you can find similar styles at ASOS and Nasty Gal.
6 Checkered Shirt
A checkered shirt in a silky fabric can easily be dressed up or down. Wear it to work tucked into a pencil skirt or on the weekends with some skinny jeans. This blue and white checkered shirt from Paul Smith is an expensive option at a couple of hundred dollars. Check out ASOS and Tilly’s for similar shirts on a budget.
7 Checkered Jumper
A large checkered jumper has a real retro feel to it. All things retro are trending right now so a cosy jumper is perfect for wearing during chilly weather. Since it’s quite a bold pattern, keep the rest of your outfit fairly simple. This Topshop jumper will set you back around $80 but you can get a similar version from Forever 21 for under $20.
8 Checkered Coat
A checkered coat can be a classic addition to your wardrobe. It would look great worn over a range of different outfits. This one is from Topshop’s Unique selection and is quite expensive at $500. It’s almost the same cost as coats by designers like Chloé and Kate Spade! For something in a more reasonable price range, check out Macy’s and Nordstrom for reduced price checkered coats.
To really make this trend work, stick to large geometric checks rather than smaller checkered patterns. What do you think of these checkered clothes? How would you style this trend?
