Spot the trend – Gingham

One of the major trends this spring summer is this plain weave cotton fabric. If you are looking for something fresh to add to your wardrobe, look no further, Gingham is your print. The fabric has stood the test of time and returned with a bang. It has been a hit on the SS’17 collection all around the globe. Spotted at all branded as well as thrift stores; from designers to runway models; celebs to fashion bloggers, everyone is swept by the gingham rage.

About Gingham

  • Light weight cotton cloth.
  • Typically with checks in white and any bold color.
  • Shirts, Pants, Blazers, Skirts, Jumpsuits, Dresses, off shoulder tops- a piece for everyone.
  • Unisex pattern. A gingham shirt is a menswear staple.

Since, it ticks all the boxes, there is no reason for you to not own it.

It certainly compliments my wardrobe style. All praise for this trend, I couldn’t resist getting my hands on this one. I found a natty gingham dress in blue and white bold checks. What could be more in vogue, the dress has a floral embroidery that sits at the base of the neckline and an asymmetric hem that completes this trendy piece.

Let me just spare you all the bragging and share how I styled this piece. I have played around with looks; hope you get some inspiration.

This look is classy chic without being a pushover. To go out for an informal lunch-meeting, I have kept the look simple and accessorized with a structured tote in black, a gold watch and black kitten heels. Add a summer blazer for a formal/business attire.

Layering the gingham dress with a polo t-shirt in a contrasting color or pairing it with a round neck tee in solid blue. Choose your pick. For accessories, I have added an orange choker, a jute sling and tan sneakers to one look and brown wayfarers and sneakers to the other. The looks give out a laid back vibe. Perfect for college or  to carry when going for a brunch or movie with the girls. The sneakers add that playfulness and comfort for you to glide through the day.

Slay the summers and monsoons in Gingham Style!
