Tartan, glen plaid, houndstooth, gingham—the classic checkered pattern comes in a variety of styles and has been loved and recycled throughout the ages. When used for a uniform, it can make the entire outfit feel more stylish and chic. Wouldn’t you say a checkered skirt makes you look less “square” than a plain gray skirt? On the other hand, a plaid skirt might make you look preppy and a black-and-white checkerboard pattern can give your look a more grungy impression. And who can say no to a sweet gingham dress?
