TREND TO TRY: GRID PRINT
Spring has sprung and that means it’s time to say goodbye plaid and helloooooo windowpane, because this season’s trend to try – grid print!
Call it what you call it – windowpane or grid, this clean stripe and tartan hybrid is all the rage. I am definitely a fan!
You can spot it just about anywhere, from Rodarte, Derek Lam, and Christian Dior; to Express and Forever 21. The print is not only a great piece to have for a day-to-night look, but I love that it feels slightly nostalgic with a fun 60’s vibe.
In fact, the trend isn’t all that new, it started popping up just before Fall. But I think it will have a longer shelf life than expected, dare I say it will stay on the grid for quite sometime? ;)
Not sure how to wear it? For a minimalist mod-look, pair it with a white, black or neutral architectural fitting piece. For a bold look, I double dare you to pair it with another windowpane pattern. Feel free to play with colors and sizes.
For today’s look, I decided to keep it simple and pair my (super cute and super cheap) shorts with a pop of color and a denim jacket.
