On the Grid

Patterns are everywhere, but there's been a pattern in fashion that's been hot this past year - the grid print (or windowpane print).  This pattern actually has a lot of versatility to offer - it meshes well with other patterns & makes for easy pattern mixing if that's what you like.  Or, it simply makes a statement of its own if pattern mixing isn't your thing.

I haven't done inspiration boards in a while, so I put myself to task & came up with these styling ideas on how you can wear grid print.

Grid & Graphic

Grid Print & Floral

Color Block & Grid

I like how easy grid print is to style for any occasion - casual, to professional & every stop in between.  This print would also look fantastic with leopard print (imagine a grid print dress with a leopard cardi!), or for a big statement try inverted grid (white with black grid on top, & black with white grid on bottom).

Here are some great grid print options currently available - I'm in love with the pencil skirt from Express & the joggers from The Limited, but I'd be glad to have any of these in my closet!!

So, are you on the grid train?  What's your favorite way to wear this simple pattern?

  1. Great style boards as always! I only have one piece in this print - the windowpane Barcelona cami - and I do love it! It pairs easily with all kinds of things. And of course, makes me feel "on trend" because it's such a hot print right now!

  2. Omgsh all three are such great outfits--I have a special place in my heart for patterned pants though so the third one is calling my name :)


  3. The second layout is my favorite! Love the blouse. I only own one grid print cami from express, and I need to wear it more often! It's such an easy print for those of us who are a bit pattern shy ;)

  4. Great outfits! I have a window pane top and I love how versatile it is. I love the top in the 3rd set!

  5. Ohhh, I totally want to be wearing that second outfit to work tomorrow! I love the grind print.

  7. Okay I seriously love all three of these outfits!! Your style boards are always amazing and inspire me with new ideas. I don't have anything with this grid print yet but I think it's really cute, need to go pick up something soon;)

  8. Love the outfits...especially the grid and color block. I really like the way you put it all together!

  9. I'm loving grid prints lately so this post totally caught my attention. Great inspo here. Never thought of grid print and floral, must give it a try! ~Cynthia |
