Get in Line: 21 Ways to Wear a Grid Print


The last year has seen nineties grunge come back, especially when it comes to plaid everything. But if taking a nostalgic trip back to those angst-filled years doesn’t work for your day-to-day wardrobe, try a grid print that’s more of a windowpane check. It’s a graphic and minimal version of the look that also happens to be incredibly cubicle-friendly. Take the printed trousers from Joseph or Whistles and pair with a blouse and pumps to instantly have an office-ready outfit. For those chilly fall days, throw on one of the many knits available with pattern: Everyone, from Forever 21 to Urban Outfitters to J.W. Anderson, makes a version. And should you prefer something a bit more feminine, Madewell, ASOS, and Creatures of Comfort have grid-print skirts in varying hem lengths, all begging for a snuggly sweater. Click ahead to see all 21 ways to wear the trend.
