If florals don’t make you swoon, this doesn’t mean you have to ride the neutral train for life. There are other subtle prints out there for you to adorn. Gingham, in particular, is a popular print that is worth seeking. If you are looking for a classy print that screams Summer, look no further. Gingham to the rescue. It’s a casual statement piece that will have you looking fresh, polished, and put together.
If I am speaking a foreign language right now, let me reverse and explain. For those of you living under a fashion rock (lol), gingham is a lightweight plain woven cotton, typically checked in white and bold color. There isn’t a shortage of this popular print. It’s literally everywhere these days. From maxi dresses, to bikinis, to shoes, it may just be the unofficial trend of the season. I love that color options are limitless too. While synonymous with black and white, pastels and brighter hues are flying off the shelves as well. Gingham tops pair impeccably with denim and can be dressed up or down to fit your individual style and needs. Dresses are articulate without being too flamboyant and gaudy. Finally, gingham printed shoes are just what a basic outfit needs to take it from drab to fab in seconds! However you want to sport it, there’s a gingham look out there for everyone.
I can hear my husband’s insults from a mile away. Why are you wearing that? You look like a picnic table. He loves to poke fun at my outfits on a daily basis. I am accustomed to his playful banter and pay no mind to his fashion opinions! I promise you won’t look like a picnic table! The key to this checkered print is simplicity. Everything else pieced with your gingham item must be basic and solid. If it is, your look will come together flawlessly.
Gingham is a fresh alternative to florals and will make a great addition to your Spring/Summer wardrobe!
