How To Style: Gingham

by - April 08, 2017

Admittedly, gingham is not my favorite print/pattern but paired with the right items, it can be a very cute trend for Spring/Summer. If you find one with a neutral color palette, you can treat it as a neutral piece and pair it with bolder colors, making it a surprisingly versatile addition to your wardrobe.

Let's say gingham really isn't your cup of tea. Don't fear!

You can buy accessories with the gingham pattern, such as heels, flats, purse, or a headband. They're a great way to add a casual vibe to your Spring/Summer looks.

Below, I've taken a gingham skirt and styled it three different ways-- 
an urban retro look, a fashion-forward look, and a going out look.

  • Highlight your waist and legs by pairing a cropped T-shirt with the gingham mini skirt. It's a young, laid-back look that's perfect for exploring the city.
  • Add a retro, school-girl vibe by pairing it with white sneakers, a backpack, and some hoop earrings.
  • If you want it to look a bit more modern, opt for accessories with modern details like exposed zippers.

  • This is definitely a bolder ensemble, with the bright yellow and the bell sleeves, but it would be stunning for a photoshoot on the blog, brunch at a fancier restaurant, or for a date!
  • Add a clean white crossbody bag and some gold earrings to play off the white and yellow tones of the outfit.
  • Top it off with black mules for a powerful, chic, and feminine touch. It's also a great alternative to your standard stilettos, which can come off more formal.

  • For a girls' night out, pair this skirt with a fitted number. The velvety and satin textures make both the top and the clutch evening-friendly. 
  • To amp up the sexy factor, throw on a black choker and sky high strappy heels. 
  • Now, if the outfit is too revealing or overdone, feel free to switch out the stilettos for a shorter heel or even a heeled boot. You can also wear a motorcycle jacket for warmth (it adds to the sexy/badass vibes). 

How would you style gingham? Is this one of your favorite trends?

    1. I find that gingham can look a little too countryside and casual so pairing it with something like a fitted cropped tank can def make it more wearable and modern!
