These Outfits Will Convince You to Invest in a Checkered Dress

Have you ever found yourself scrolling through Instagram, only to land upon a snap of an outfit that leaves you saying, "I need to buy [insert item] ASAP"? It's happened to us, too. Most recently, we've seen a consistent dose of checkered dress outfits flooding our feed, seriously inspiring us to invest in the printed piece for fall and winter.

What's not to love? It's easy to wear (which is always a bonus), can be styled in so many ways, and acts as the perfect base upon which to build the rest of your look. Team it with sneakers for an unexpected but nonetheless welcomed combo, or style a black-and-white checked piece with white tights, white boots, and an oversize faux fur coat for a great holiday season look.
