If you’re a fan of prints, then I’m sure your interest has been piqued by the window pane trend, which retailers are betting on to become a widespread sensation this Spring. The aesthetic employs the preppy grid trend in inventive ways on swingy skirts, box clutches, A-line dresses and even one-piece swimsuits. Already spotted on notable fashion figures like Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Wonderland Magazine fashion editor Julia Sarr-Jamois.

Here are three ways to give the window pane pattern a spin this season:

1 – Pair it with basics.

The print presents the perfect opportunity for colorblocking, especially in classic black and white hues. You can style it with basic colors to make its artful grid lines the centerpiece of your look.

2 – Mix it up.

In the spirit of Solange Knowles and FLOTUS Michelle Obama, have fun pairing the window pane prints with more subtle and concentrated patterns like polka dots, plaid or even gingham.

3. Accessorize.

Those who believe the print is too bold to wear on a dress, shirt or pant may find an accessory is a good way to dabble in the trend without going overboard. A window pane scarf can energize and refine a look by adding a bit of pizazz while maintaining a level of minimalism and subtlety.

    Stay away from this trend if you’re top heavy. This print will have you looking like your neighborhood bus.

    Woah! The prices are BANANAS. Are these clothes made of the same gold paved in the streets of heaven or it’s just cotton sourced from Africa, woven in China? Jesus.

    Stay away from the trend if you’re bottom heavy too. You’ll look like a nested set of parentheses.
