Gingham is coming in hot this season, and it has been crowned the cool girl's print. Despite being usually associated with a youthful vibe, this warm-weather style has most certainly grown up for spring. Designers like Victoria Beckham, Wes Gordon and Marni, to name a few, all showcased pieces in this print on the runway in a multitude of fabrics, colours and clothing options, and it is currently proving to be increasingly popular. What is gingham though, I hear you asking me. Gingham is usually a lightweight fabric, checked in white and a bold colour. It is really very similar to plaid, and being a huge fan of plaid myself, I am loving this latest trend.
Long are the days where the gingham print was only seen on school girls outfits, picnic blankets or men's button-down shirts. Trust me, there are so many more options for this print than a boring blanket. Spring/summer is the time to get creative and wear things that are fun and in new ways. Need some inspiration on how to pull this trend off? I know I do! Check out these gorgeous outfits below.
Things can't get any simpler than wearing the print in a dress! It looks fashionable and just screams summer. The print works for both more casual and dressy looks, and if you aren't too sure just yet, keep the rest of the outfit in a neutral palette to make your gingham piece pop. Dark blues and monochrome shades work well for a more mature take on this trend.
Similarly, you can stick to comfort and pair a shirt with a nice pair of distressed denim, in any shade really. A leather jacket adds warmth on those chilly spring days (London seems to have lots of those) and toughens it up just the right amount!
And if being bold is your thing, I love the middle look above, all gingham! Mixing gingham with another pattern or print can totally work too, the only thing to remember is to stick to the same colour scheme.
Thoughts on the print? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and have a nice weekend ahead!
