Trend: Gingham & How To Wear It

What do you think of when you see gingham? Does images of picnics and Dorothy from Wizard of Oz pop up? It's understandable because it sure does for me! This season designers and chic bloggers have been able to breath new life into gingham and style it uniquely. Here are some outfit ideas by a few of my favorite bloggers on how not to look like a picnic table.

She infused a '70s vibe with light colored flared denim, Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses, vintage scarf, platform shoes, and a Mulberry bag

Tips
  • Use it as an accent piece - wear one piece of gingham
  • Don't be afraid to stray away from blue and red (try yellow or mint)
  • Add punches of gingham through accessories and shoes
  • The smaller the gingham pattern, the less tablecloth-y the look
  • Keep it looking sharp and tailored
  • To stay away from the country bumpkin look, mix in modern pieces
  • Try mixing patterns and colors for a more dimensional look
  • When wearing a gingham dress, add a light faded denim jacket and killer nude heels 


 Are you into gingham?
Does it belong in your closet or on the picnic table?
