punk style: checkerboard

As seen here, checkerboard is a graphic, cool styling element. It is a cornerstone look championed by current pop-punk favorites who drew inspiration from original 2 tone bands that brought us the ska-punk sound and style. I appreciate the casual, yet clean vibe it adds to a look and would incorporate it in styling to achieve this type of feel.
