Ever since Louis Vuitton had that graphic fashion moment last fall with its Spring RTW collection, the streets have been flooded with mono-chromed checkered print, or “window pane” print. Why is it one of my favorite looks? Because it’s classic, and it makes every outfit POP! The show was a unmistaken check mate: memorable, simplistic, extravagant, modern, and more importantly commercial. You can wear it, I can wear it, chic minimalism is for everyone this spring.
Not on a Louis Budget? I feel you!
While I was inspired by the Louis looks, my bank account needs a couple more zeroes behind it before I’m shelling out car payments for a blouse. Some day. For now I decided to improvise the trend with a blouse I found at Forever 21. I paired it was a coat and a sport jacket to show off the versatility of it, while mixing it with a statement pair of pants via Zara Basic. I just recently discovered MAC’s “cyber” lip color and I love it! A little intimidating at first, but once you add a little gloss sheen, you feel a little less Twilight and a little more Azelia Bank’s “1991.” Will be my out fit staple! Who says you can’t do berry dark lips in the spring?
Similarly you can shop windowpane on a reasonable budget.
The shirt I’m wearing ABOVE is from Forever 21.
