Hey my beautiful ladies! This spring, a lot of fun patterns, prints, and fabrics are in style in a major way. One of the trends taking off this season is gingham, which would remind most of us of Dorothy skipping down the yellow brick road with the rest of the Wizard of Oz gang or of Raggedy Ann—styles we would definitely avoid. Anyway, gingham is a checkered pattern that is really very similar to plaid, so if you are a huge fan of plaid you will obviously love this too.
There is no debate that gingham is the print of 2015. Not only was it all over the runways during fashion week, but now the celeb set can’t get enough of it — and you can try it, too. This pattern is perfect for many types of outfits and styles: casual, sport chic, street and work. So, scroll down to see some style ideas to rock gingham without looking like a picnic blanket or table cloth this spring.
Gingham pants are fun, preppy, and perfect for spring. Pair them with a solid top and bright shoes.
You can try gingham-on-gingham outfits but keep in mind that they should have a similar color or tone, preferably neutral (e.g., white, black). The same goes for gingham-and-printed.
Add a leather jacket over your gingham dress to toughen it up just the right amount.
Wear your gingham button-down shirt open, like a cardigan, with ripped jeans and a plain white tee. A pair of heels instantly dress things up, but you can go for flats for something more casual.
Opt for spring layering with a gingham shirt, cute skirt, and sleeveless vest. Add a belt for a unique touch.
Because of its daintiness and breezy feel, gingham can be a great contrast to heavily textured fabrics such as leather and knits. For one thing, it gives that edgy but chic look on you.
