#STYLEBOOK: 7 Ways To Rock The Checkerboard Trend

By Blair Stutz

If you’re all about staying up on all the newest and hottest trends, then allow us to introduce you to the checkerboard trend that’s taking over our IG feeds. The print has been seen on all of the most stylish bloggers and it’s surprisingly easy to wear. Of course, you can wear a simple pair of classic checkerboard sneakers but we’re giving you full permission to go all out and wear it head to toe!

Here are 7 ways to wear the checkerboard print!

Check Please

Marianne Theodorsen

Who said fall had to be about dull, boring colours? Def not us and clearly Marianne, too. We are loving her checkerboard print furry coat that she’s paired with a wild furry hat. Not to be overlooked are her lime green boots and chic mini Birkin bag!

Bold Brights

Michelle Li

Serving us a casual athletic lewk is Michelle but this #ootd is anything but basic thanks to her bright checker print fleece sweater and tie-dye skirt. Even better are her chunky sneakers that are not only trendy but comfy, too!

Pattern x Pattern

Nnenna Echem

Never one to shy away from bright colours or bold patterns is Nnenna and we’re literally swooning over this ensemble here. Checkerboard print can often skew streetwear but this outfit proves it can be versatile.

Seeing Stars

Elly Malone

We’re tickled pink with this ensemble on Elly. From her star-printed jacket to her bright checkerboard trousers, we’re in love. Adding to the magic of this lewk are her chunky boots and fab sunnies!

Autumn Days

Abby of @AbbyOnTheInternet

Your fall uniform is here courtesy of Abby. Even though it seems a bit simple, we love that it’s comprised of classics with the exception of the trendy checkerboard print jacket. Abby’s jeans, loafers, and turtleneck are timeless.


Simone Hedal

If you’re feeling fearless, take a note from Simone here and rock the checkerboard print in full form. Her checkered sweater is SO chic and paired with the trousers, sends it into overdrive. We’d never think to pair the outfit with mint green booties but we’re loving it!

Fall Fleece

Rebecca Ramsdale

Our local gal Rebecca is no stranger to a fab outfit and this one featuring those checkerboard printed pants is no exception. We love how she keeps the rest of the lewk fairly simple to allow her trousers to take centre stage!
