Sick of plain ol' plaid? Then this is one trend you'll totally want to check out! From sweaters to skirts, all our fall essentials have received a graph paper-like makeover as of late. Inspired by the criss-crossing of old-fashioned windowpanes, this checkered pattern is the ideal combo of classic and cutting edge.
We suggest wearing one statement piece (like a Gap sweater) or mixing multiple items with varying square sizes (an oversize print is perfect for pairing with a Dorothy Perkins scarf, which offers a miniature take on the trend). Click through to see our favorite picks!
