Nothing screams summer quite like gingham, and this season it is the print you need to wear. Don’t know how to pull it off? Well, you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up the best finds that won’t break the bank so read on for our tips and shop the hot trend.
The quintessential spring and summer pattern that reminds us of picnics and sun-drenched days is back in a big way this season. Sure, gingham is always a tried and true staple, but we’re seeing it everywhere we turn, from runway shows to stellar street-style and on our fave stylish stars — and now you can rock it, too!
Since you can rock the pattern in any silhouette it’s so easy to try the trend. If you’re unsure of embracing the bold pattern, we recommend sticking to a shape you already know works well on your body, whether that be a romper or dress — there’s something for everyone! Dresses and midi-skirts are definitely the most office friendly if you want to take the trend from desk-to-dinner. We love the idea of mixing up gingham with other trends. For example, you can make it look edgy with a lace-up grommet tee or seriously stylin’ with a pair of red tassel earrings. We also love pairing our gingham with the season’s biggest shoe trends, like sneakers and mules. Looking for a sporty vibe? Gingham shorts with a crop top and sneakers is the way to go.
