ith a new season approaching – hello warmer weather! – comes a plethora of spring trends. One classic print that seems to be making its way into every store is gingham, but with some much needed updates. In the past, gingham has been undeniably preppy: think your classic button-down shirt. This season, it proves to be something anyone can wear. See below for some inspiration and key pieces to snag before they’re gone.
From the Runway
We saw gingham make a comeback on the runways this season, juxtaposed with edgy accessories. Designers were not afraid to style the classic print from head to toe and in other colors besides your typical black and white. For a look straight from the runway, pair gingham with smudged black eyeliner or a some rosy blush.
From the Streets
To avoid being mistaken for a middle school prepster, choose a gingham top that incorporates a high fashion detail like a ruffle or an off-the-shoulder style. For bottoms, any silhouette works – we especially love these pants and this skirt. And of course, nothing says spring like a gingham dress: this one is updates the standard shift with a tie-back detail.
