Spring 2013 Has Brought the Checkerboard Look

For most women, putting together an outfit this spring will be definitely less of a stress and this is all due to the March Jacobs collection with all its cool and inspiring looks that make it OK to show up at an event wearing the same outfit as your best friend. You will also have the go ahead to wear two altogether different feet of shoes at the same time. Are you kidding, you may ask? Yes, fashion is what you make it and the checkerboard quirky look makes it appealing to try anything crazy this spring; especially if you cannot afford the designer looks right now!

About ninety three percent of Louis Vuitton’s fashion ensembles this spring are featuring contrasted checkers previously known as Damier and graphic prints. These are signature looks from Louis Vuitton that have stood the test of time. You may recognize the same look in their bags, suitcases and leather products that you may have lusted after in the airport duty free shops. Now you can emulate the same look with your clothing. These prints are iconic and have gone through the fashion mill by designers who have blown them up, super-sized them and even sprinkled all types of pattern on the fabric.

You will find these little checkerboard numbers in:
• Fitted Jackets
• Shift Dresses
• Pencil Skirts
• Rompers
• Crop Tops and other trendy outfits

Celebrities and checkerboard
Celebrities are gravitating towards the checkerboard apparel and the red carpet has seen many so far. It has been in various colors and styles of late. Kristen Stewart received the debut honor of wearing a Louis Vuitton checkerboard romper to a night affair in Tokyo after the same outfit was shown on a Paris runway. She loved the piece and secured it before anyone else could. She may have worn a sample that she received from the fashion show itself.

Kerry Washington, Kate Upton and Jessica Alba also wore the checkerboard on the red carpet and on magazine front covers. Kerry Washington wore her dress baggy and below the knees. She combined the look with pointed brown pumps and white accessory.

This trend may find itself being one of the most dominant in spring collections and editorial pieces. It is presented as a high impact, easy-to-recognize and wearable outfit. Be prepared to see a lot of checkerboard outfits over the next several months in even bolder colors.
