Showcased in October last year during the Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton’s 2013 spring/ summer collection has inspired the chequerboard trend. Kristen Dunst, Kristen Stewart, Juno Temple, Jessica Alba and Kerry Washington have all recently been spotted in checkered looks.
The checkered look is a little bit whimsical and playful which is part of its appeal to women across the age brackets. However, Louis Vuitton’s collection presented chequerboard looks in a more grown-up, glamorous and chic style which has seen the style quickly become a favorite for a number of celebrities and fashion enthusiasts.
The Louis Vuitton collection featured checkered looks in combinations of different hues including the classic black and white, yellow and white, brown and white as well as green and white. The looks in the collection included long chequerboard dresses with full sleeves and chequerboard skirts as well.
Another appeal with Vuitton’s chequerboard look is that it looks great on everyone who has been spotted in it. The versatility of the look is also another eye-catching aspect about it. It can work for virtually any occasion and matches well with diverse accessory and hair combinations. This is definitely a trend we can expect to see more on the red carpet this year.
