Check Mate: Checkered for Spring

This spring it’s all about patterns, shapes, and textures!

From handbags, to shoes, spring jackets, and everything in between, I am loving the versatility that patterns bring to an outfit, and patterns make for a exciting new way to jazz up my street styles. One trend that I’m really into right now is the checkered look. The Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 show featured checkers as a primary feature, and sent fashion critics, stylists, and bloggers in a mod frenzy! Designers such as Balmain, Proenza Schouler, and Chanel played with the popular pattern as well at their prospective runway shows, and I think it’s a fun way to be expressive for spring and stay right on trend. While I may not choose to go all out in a full checkered outfit like the runways showed, I love the idea of pairing a checkered purse or pair of heels with an outfit, and love that there are so many ways to incorporate the trend into your look!

What do you think of the checkered trend? Would you rock it?
