While nautical stripes and fifties florals fill the fashion mag pages, there's plenty of retro print choices still to plunder. Often forgotten, the checkerboard pattern is a versatile and instantly vintage-look choice, as shown by this Checkerboard Cardigan by A.L.C.
Whether you're channelling mod style or a more rudegirl style ska look, this is an ideal choice for accompanying many a dangerously revealing minidress. Even worn as casual daywear, as wardrobe fillers go this one deserves to be worn again and again.
It's available online from Shopbop for $495.
