Gingham: a lightweight plain-woven cotton cloth, typically checked in white and a bold colour. When we think of this classic pattern, we no doubt envision picnic cloths or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Gingham is fabric that has stood the test of time and has become incredibly trendy, trickling into everything, from high fashion to home decor.

I personally love it as a fresh alternative to the romantic florals that abound during the warmer months. I appreciate its ability to look preppy or girly. You can really give it different personas, depending on the silhouette and how you accessorize. In today’s blog, I am sporting an off the shoulder version that I loved so much, I purchased in yellow as well! I got it for under $30 at Old Navy a couple months ago and it’s on sale now! (I have linked it above).

This classic check pattern offers a nod to the past while being modern at the same time. It can come in a variety of colours, from yellow to red, pink to blue, but black and white is the perfect option for transitioning from spring to summer and then into fall. For instance, layer a button down black and white gingham dress shirt under a cozy sweater upon cooler months.

But, enough about autumn!!  Summer is here and this pattern channels it perfectly. From bathing suits to jumpsuits; family picnics to date nights, there is a gingham silhouette to suit any affair. Take it in an elegant direction with classic pearl earrings and chainlink style handbags or prep it up with a classic tote and some loafers or mules. Look vacation ready and on trend with straw hat and or bag.

No matter your personal style. whether you want to look crisp, wholesome, traditional or modern, there is something gingham for you. The options are endless, as is the versatility of this quintessential closet staple, making it a must-have for your wardrobe!

Hope you all have an amazing rest of your week. Thanks for reading!
