Spring trend: Windowpane & grid patterns

Today I'm linking up with Agi over at Vodka Infused Lemonade to talk about my favorite spring trend. There are quite a few things I'm digging right now - I've already talked about neon and gingham, so I figured for this post I'd focus on grid patterns. It first caught my eye seeing it over at Wendy's Lookbook. 

Shadow Play :: Distressed jeans & grid patterns

What a simply stated outfit with the easy sweater and distressed jeans. She added a little luxe to the look with her Chanel.

Windowpanes :: Silk trousers & Film project

These pants are so fun! I love how she paired some red and purple with this. The color pop complements the windowpane, but doesn't detract from it at all, and at the same time, keeps the jacket from looking like waitstaff attire. 

The grid pattern is very crisp and contemporary. I love the symmetry and the architectural statement. The lines give your outfit structure even if the garments themselves are not super fitted.

My favorite windowpane purchase so far is this popover top from the Kate Spade Saturday line. Here are a couple pics of me trying it on; I can't wait to create an actual outfit with it!!
