Every now and then I notice a trend that’s actually worth buying into (and usually after it’s withstood a season or two). This fall it’s grid prints (aka windowpane prints), a slight twist on the classic and simple patterns that tend to dominate my wardrobe year-round. Think of grid prints as a bolder alternative to your go-to gingham, plaid, or stripes. The styling is up to you: wear a windowpane sweater with a skirt or jeans and call it a day or go matchy-matchy and layer two grid prints in the same color palette.
Fun fact: Carly and I actually spotted this woman in line at Starbucks less than ten minutes before this photo was taken last year and we both loved her look. Fast forward to a year later and I’m finally feeling brave enough to try it myself…!
When Blair Eadie and Olivia Palermo are in on the trend, you know it’s worth hopping on board. My own foray into grid prints has been the purchase of this Pim + Larkin grid print sweater ($98) and I have to say it’s been getting a lot of wear! Here are a few more picks for those of you ready to give it a go:
Cameo night sky dress ($180)
Theory Kuna P blouse ($285)
