To really trip up people on the street, your best bet is to rock LightInTheBox’s 3D Print T-Shirt ($15, LightInTheBox). I’m almost positive that, if you stare at the red square in the middle long enough, the rest of the print will begin to move.
With sizes ranging from S to 5X, TeePublic’s Checkerboard White T-Shirt ($20, TeePublic) will give you the coveted skater look, perfect to wear with checkered Vans. Pair it with wide-leg jeans to appear like the disaffected youth you want to see in the world.
Get ricocheted back to 2010s scene culture with Forever 21’s Checkered Print Shirt ($12, Forever 21), which is as classic as you can get. This pattern lacks the singular tricks of the other tops, but you can still capture the bold, brilliant look of checkerboard with this shirt in your cart.
You can really load up on graphics with Shirtcent’s Lip Checkerboard Shirt ($25, Shirtcent). It’s made with 100% cotton for ultra-comfy wear, and can easily be dressed up under a black blazer or down with some baggy, ripped jeans.
Checkerboard can be a lot, even in its most basic styles. However, you can just flirt with the print by purchasing Romwe’s Checkerboard Sleeve Tee ($7, Romwe). The pastel rainbow is playful yet softer than the usual stark white-and-black choice, making it even more gentle.
The Lana Top ($59.50, Lisa Says Gah) is a true optical illusion that somehow works with any bottom or color you want it to — I guess that’s part of the illusion. The sheer top is stretchy, comfortable and romantic in silhouette, giving you the opportunity to elevate it or dress it down to your liking.
