If there is something that Gambit de Dama left us – in addition to some style lessons – it is the love for him. checkered print. This print was not born with the series, obviously, but it was reinforced and driven by it. So much so that today it continues to tread stronger than ever.
Although it has been in use for many years, the checkerboard pattern became popular especially in the 60s and currently we frame it within those retro prints that are so popular now. Historically the most used version has been in black and white, like the chessboard itself, but today we also have garments of colors more lively with which to give a twist to this pattern.
Lately we have seen it a lot both in stores and on Instagram, with celebrities like Kendall Jenner wearing it in all kinds of clothes, from dresses or shirts to pants.
We have also wanted to join this trend, both in its most classic version black & white as with some more colorful garments. And this is our selection:
Short dress with ruching
This dress seems to us the most for a dinner or party night or for a summer day. In addition, by having a semitransparent fabric on the sleeves, it achieves a “two-color” optical effect. 41.99 euros.
