When it comes to gingham, most of us probably associate it with characters from old TV shows like Dorothy from ‘The Wizard of Oz’. But surprisingly, it is very easy to give the print a personalized spin. You might be surprised by how versatile the print is—it’s popping up on everything from bomber jackets to cocktail dresses. Here are a few outfit ideas that offer plenty of inspiration for jumping aboard the gingham train.
Create a weekend style: There is no cuter weekend outfit than a gingham dress and converse sneakers. Add in a straw fedora and an “it” bag, and well, you have just achieved outfit gold. Another style choice is to find a trendy button-down gingham top and pair it with slacks, making it instantly cooler with a chunky, buckled bootie.
Another unexpected, forward choice is to just add a fun jacket and black pumps, and this gingham attire is ready to go. The best idea given to stylish darlings is to lighten up a leather bomber jacket with a frequent trademark of spring: namely, a pair of trousers covered in a vivid gingham pattern.
Get matchy-matchy with gingham: Who would have thought that gingham on gingham could look so effortlessly glamorous and trendy. This look isn’t the easiest to replicate, but look for matching gingham sets to achieve such a feat, like slim pants and a structured crop top, or a gingham jacket and skirt combination. Anyone can find similar gingham styles to create an exciting monochromatic look all season long
Modernize gingham with a graphic top: Take a prim gingham skirt, add a graphic tee or sweatshirt, and voila, you have a trendy and unexpected work outfit that will have everyone buzzing and eager to copy your style. A tighter gingham pencil skirt can get an updated style treatment with pointed, heeled booties and a colourful graphic tee.
Go minimal with gingham: 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 long dress. It's easy breezy done right.
Chic with gingham: Opt for a stylish cocktail dress in a gingham pattern and you’ll 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. Also, a pair of Classic all-black scuffers will make the gingham cocktail dress more everyday if you feel in the mood.
Happy with bright-colour 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. If you are the kind of person that loves vibrant colour pallete, opt for gingham in lime green, red or purple and mix it with other clothing items in fun shades of yellow, pastel pink, or mint green.
