We never could quite remember the rules of chess, but we instantly fell in love with Louis Vuitton's checked Spring collection when we saw it descending down the escalators in Paris last fall. And unsurprisingly, we weren't the only ones seeing squares.
Kristen Stewart was an early adopter of the trend, donning a black and white colorblock jumper to a Twilight premiere in Japan way back in October. Now, in the past week alone, actresses Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, and Kirsten Dunst (in reference, we're sure, to her breakout role as Checker's official dog walker in 1999's Dick) have all sported bold duotone looks from the line, and we don't see it stopping anytime soon. Call us crazy, but we'd even go so far as to dub square prints the new polkadot: We can't imagine we'll get checker-bored of it anytime soon.
But why wait 'til Louis Vuitton's stuff hits the shelves--or spend your life's savings--to get in on the board game fun? We found 10 checkerboard styles you'll want to wear right now. Check 'em out!
