Trend that's not going anywhere: black & white check (+ ruffles)! How to Wear DIY or buy one on sale!

Last summer I made this black/white checkered simple dress with a ruffle I added. I couldn't get enough of the buffalo check look, so I also made this top with the extra fabric, and I made this cute full-skirted dress with a smaller black/white check.

Well, I am happy to report that the black/white checkered trend (with some fun accents like ruffles) is not going anywhere anytime soon! I've seen this pattern around this summer as well and when I wore that first dress last night I got several compliments!

I wanted to share a few ideas for getting the look yourself!

So here's mine. It's soooo comfy on a hot day, loose but not sloppy. And the check makes it feel really fresh and cute!


And here are some similar ones I've seen this summer--most of which are on sale or clearance right now! If you have the time to DIY, great!, but if not, these are great options!

So cute, right? Some are in the $30-50 range (or less) and all signs point to YES, these will still be in style next spring and summer!

Now the only question for me is..... how many black and white checkered clothing pieces is too many??

Shop the look here!
