How to Wear Windowpane Print With 16 Menswear-Inspired Pieces
If you love being in sync with all the latest fashion trends, then it’s probably about time that you meet the menswear-inspired motif of the season. Whether you refer to it as windowpane, classic grid or uniformed checks — there are endless ways to rock this perfect-for-summer print. Here are 16 awesomely minimalist investment pieces (and budget buys!) to get you started!
3. Grid Print Skater Dress ($41): You can’t go wrong with the always flattering fit-and-flare silhouette. No surprise, we’re smitten with this grid print dress — it’s both sweet and sophisticated at the same time.
4. Bow Check Shirt ($40): Be prim and polished for the office in a monochrome tie-neck blouse.
6. Check Ponte Dress ($50): Super minimalist and mod, where have you been all our lives? With large checks and the coolest cutout back detail (seriously, check it out!), how can you consider moving forward without it?
7. Argelia Grid Playsuit With Peter Pan Collar in White ($42): Never have we been so excited to don a playsuit before. This one, complete with a Peter Pan collar and bold grid print, is downright cheeky.
10. Glamorous Print Jumpsuit ($58): The only thing better than a maxi dress is a totally glam windowpane jumpsuit. Go the extra mile with this show-stoppin’ number.
11. Merino Wool Sweater ($275): Oh-so-perfect for those chilly summer nights, say hello to the quintessential printed pullover that you’ll never want to leave your side.
12. Oversized Grid Print Blazer ($69): Move over floral, there’s a new print in town! For your next boardroom meeting, style this black grid print blazer with a sleek pencil skirt and let the compliments roll in.
13. Stretch Cotton Ankle Trousers ($72): When your fave black trousers lose their luster, rest assured that these crisp ankle pants will steal the show.
15. Reese Streamline Grid Print ($258): While this button-down shirt errs on the splurge-worthy side, trust us… it’s worth it. For a streamlined, you-mean-business look, it doesn’t get more on-point than this.
16. Amy Blouse ($54): Just when you thought windowpane was solely of the black-and-white variety, this darling navy option makes an appearance. Again, you gotta love the Peter Pan collar…

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
