Marc Jacobs must have had chess on his mind when he designed his Spring 2013 collections for Louis Vuitton and his eponymous labels, because checkered prints were front and center. The rest of fashion followed, and this Summer there are boxy prints finding their way onto shoes, bags, swimsuits, and more.
Steven Alan's Flannel Ruffle Shirt ($163) exudes a comfy and quirky vibe, hence why Mary-Kate Olsen got her hands on it and wore it while chillin' on the streets of NYC. (Natalie Portman also wore the shirt recently.) Our friends over at Rarechic are nice enough to provide a 15 percent discount on any item for FabSugar readers. Just enter Happy2008 at checkout.

Who is this checkerboard chick and what did she do with Sophia Bush? I don't care who it is, she just stole the cake! Seriously though, the actress has never looked so Fab in her black and white checkered strapless mini dress. I love it! Do you?
