Now there are so many iterations of the microtrend and they don’t just come in plain old black and white, although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with monochrome.
From Zara’s selection of checkerboard pieces for autumn, to STAND’s infamous faux fur coat and now KITRI’s take on the print in the form of a pink dress, there’s a version to suit every style.
So how will you be wearing it this season?
Here’s how influencers are wearing checkerboard and 15 of the best printed pieces out there, with trousers, dresses and tops from KITRI Studio, ASOS, Wray NYC and more.
