Gingham is classy, charming, and laced with summer’s good vibes. The timeless pattern has undergone a major transformation with a crop of new silhouettes and embellishments (think: bold bows, peekaboo cutouts, etc.) that read trend-right, not tired. Here are some ways to unlock gingham’s hidden style potential.
Create a weekend style: There is no cuter weekend outfit than a gingham dress and converse sneakers. Another style choice is to find a trendy gingham top and pair it with slacks or on-trend track pants. Think about adding a fun jacket and black pumps so your gingham attire is ready to go. A pair of trousers in a vivid gingham pattern can be offset by a leather bomber jacket and a simple ruffle blouse. The possibility also exists to make gingham trousers pop with a vibrant red topper.
Get matchy-matchy: Gingham on gingham can look so effortlessly trendy. This look isn’t the easiest to replicate, but go for for matching gingham sets to achieve such a feat, like slim pants and a structured top, or a gingham jacket and skirt combination. Anyone can find similar gingham styles to create an exciting monochromatic look all season long. Moreover, a suit is made all the more interesting in gingham this summer.
Play with prints: Master the art of print clashing with an effortless ensemble of a black and blue colored gingham print to keep the look fresh. You can even give your gingham top a flirty, feminine edge by pairing it with a floral skirt. Mixing prints is the epitome of style, so make a decision to team gingham with a festive floral print or maybe even marble prints and pineapples.
Modernize: Take a prim gingham skirt, add a graphic tee or sweatshirt, and voila, you have a trendy work outfit. A tighter gingham pencil skirt can get an updated style treatment with pointed, heeled booties and a colorful graphic tee. Instead of just any gingham skirt, try out one with ruffles and layers for added appeal.
Go minimal: Styling your gingham dress with minimal accessories and sexy sky-high black sandals—it’s all you need to be on trend this season. Alternatively, you should never underestimate the power of flat boots and a maxi dress. It’s easy breezy done right.
Also, a stylish cocktail dress in a gingham pattern will turn heads for all of the right reasons. Whether it’s a dress in a spring tone, or a bright print, it is almost always a good look. Take the trend to a new level by opting for a pastel tone and pairing the look with stiletto heels. For leisure, a shirtdress is the perfect go-to.
Bold bright-color gingham: One of the best ways to make a statement is to reach for those types of blouses or pants that strays from the typical tones of blue, red, and black. Opt for a vibrant color pallete of gingham in lime green, red or purple and mix it with other clothing items in fun shades of yellow, pastel pink, or mint green.
