Whom/What comes to mind when you see a gingham print?
I will tell you… “Dorothy” from the Wizard of Oz or a basic tablecloth. Yeah??It is what we used to call boxed or checkered.
From the catwalks to the high streets gingham was one of the most dominant trends on the runway. The classic black and white, to bold mixed with florals, gingham has literally hit the trend list for 2017.It is one of spring’s hottest prints.
Gingham might not be for everyone but I personally love it.I think it is one of the most playful prints that men and women can get away with wearing.
This gingham dress ticks all the right boxes for me as it has the cool “old school “vibe. The button-down detail at the front gives it more edge.With the fabric being a light weight, it makes it a good fit for that time when the temperatures turn upward.
I love this dress as i can style it in different ways- with flats or heels, i can even add a denim top on top (no pun intended)- throw in a denim jacket and it creates an outfit that i can rock to the office. Dress it up or down, with thigh high boots or a nice clean pair of sneakers for that feminine but modern look.
Gingham is not for the faint hearted as it is an eye-catching print that makes a statement on its own. Therefore one needs to go minimal on the accessories.
