Black-and-white checked, striped, Rorschach and geometric patterns dominated the fall/winter runways during Fashion Week. The mesmerizing combination of light and dark creates an optical illusion that’s both flattering and, well, fun. Prepare to find tons of sneakers, jogger pants, dresses and shirts covered in the unisex print inside the best shops in New York. And we promise your mind is not playing tricks on you—this trend is a serious heavy-hitter this season.
