Checkerboard Fashion Trend: Spring 2022


The fashion trend for cheerful checkerboard is coming in strong for spring. And get ready, it’s only going to get bolder and brighter as the weather warms up (soon come). The checkerboard fashion trend works brilliantly as a new season refresher if you’re working with a capsule wardrobe. 

We’ve also spotted plenty of clever checkerboard interior items too, if you don’t fancy dressing like a chessboard, although the street style we spotted make us think, why not?

London Fashion Week just wrapped and although we had one eye on the catwalk to suss out the emerging trends, new themes and the most important mood of Autumn ahead, we also kept a beady eye on what’s happening with the street style set. 

The stylists and editors that attend the shows often have their pick of designer pieces to borrow – but they also mix them in with their own IRL wardrobes, giving you plenty more useable fashion inspiration for how to wear a *lewk*. And this season checkerboard was the pattern of choice.

Checkerboard is bigger, bolder and more lairy than its cottage-core summer cousin, gingham

The planes of colour are more distinct. Geeky fashion fact for ya: whereas gingham is woven with fibres that cross over to create two same-shade squares in the pattern, and one combining both, checkerboard just has the two shades. They’re not the same.

The street style set at London Fashion Week served up a winter wardrobe masterclass during the storm

If you want to get on board (ahem) you can make a statement or go subtle. Accessories are always an easy way to work a trend and checkerboard works brilliantly on an array of finishing touches. Wrap Urban Outfitters’ belt over a little black dress to give your classics a fresh feel, slip ASOS’s organic cotton tote into your handbag for a cool way to cart your spare shoes or team Monki’s cute beanie hat with a neutral tracksuit

If you choose check colours that are similar, it’s an easier way to wear the trend. Try & Other Stories’ lime and off-white jumper or H&M’s lilac and lavender jeans. Then, if you want to go all out, pick a pattern with highly contrasting shades. Black and white look strongest but we also love Skinnydip’s bright red and pink knit. Wear it with pink jeans to nail 2022’s tribute to Y2K style. Check, mate.
