OutFit: Gingham

Springtime is a classic pattern, but always looks fresh in spring.

Plaid is perfect for fall, but in springtime when the flowers start to bloom it’s time for another classic pattern: gingham.

Also known as a checked pattern, gingham can be worn many different ways.

A gingham print dress can look traditional or modern depending on the style. A full skirt and ‘50s silhouette is more retro and girly, while a form fitting gingham dress is city-chic.

Choose a gingham print button down for a fresh office look, or wear a sheer gingham blouse with a pencil skirt as an alternative to the little black dress.

Hollywood beauties have worn gingham for decades. From Judy Garland in Dorothy’s iconic dress in “The Wizard of Oz” to Brigitte Bardot’s pink and white gingham wedding dress, this print manages to be both sweet and glamorous.
