I’ve always loved checkered Vans. I had this same exact green and white pair freshman year of high school that I wore all the time. I wish I had saved them! Since then, I hadn’t really thought about buying or wearing a pair until about a year ago. My biggest hesitation was figuring out what I would even wear with them. I thought they wouldn’t really go with much and I’d never wear them.
I was wrong! I decided to go for it and get them because I like them and they’re super practical for wearing around the city. I’m happy to find I wear them with so much more than I even thought I would. I even pair them with patterns I didn’t think I would.
So, for those of you who, like me, aren’t sure how to wear them or just want some outfit inspiration, here are some ways to wear checkered Vans!
