Think red and white check picnic blanket, Brigitte Bardot’s pink and white wedding dress, the Scottish tartan. S/S 2015 runways were dominated by the ‘gingham’ trend by nearly every designer. The pieces were not just stylish checked shirts. No ma’am! They were…
The Playful Crop Top- Gingham crop tops or crop tops with checks reinvented were seen in abundance. Giving the outfit fun summers feel, this chic top can be paired with anything and everything.
The Flowy Midi Skirt- The calf length skirts in monochrome and colour will transport you to the green fields where you walk barefoot. Catching the breeze around your legs, these a-line skirts are the next best thing!
The Pencil Skirt- Pencil skirts with slits are all the rage now. So why not wear one with checks? Giving the outfit a slightly more formal look, this skirt was a pleasant elegant surprise from all the chic and flirty outfits which we were showcased. Tie your hair in a chic ponytail and you can walk into that boardroom.
The Perfect Summer Dress- Flirty summer dresses or the innocent ones turned heads nearly every time the gingham trend showed itself on the catwalk. These dresses are so versatile that you can pair them with leather jackets or a soft shrug and probably ride a Vespa. Pair them with bold coloured pumps and you are ready to rock the night.
The Accessories- Don’t like checks so much but really want to try the trend? Why not keep it simple and small with gingham accessories? Gingham patterned totes, sling bags and gingham patterned pumps and peep toes get the fun element in your ‘fun’tastic outfit. Tired of the same black pumps every day? Why not opt for the black and white check patterned ones for your office wear?
Don’t opt for the thick checked fabric. Go for the dreamy, flowy ones with the perfect summer layering and with the right hint of elegance and chic. This trend has managed to embody the laid-back trend, the playful 60s, the vintage 30’s and warm sunny days which are perfect for picnics. Get on with this trend and soak in the sun and watch people checking you out.
