gingham

112202c06a347175294a281c1c856c94 Gingham pops up in the shops every year around this time, but this season it seems like the pattern is everywhere, and I like it. I mentioned a while back that J.Crew has an entire section dedicated to all things gingham, and I’ve seen it in quite a few editorials and blogs as well. Gingham can tend to veer super preppy and buttoned up (think Reese Witherspoon) or casual-chic (a la Brigtte Bardot), but I think the ideal way to style it is somewhere in between the two. I absolutely love how Ines de la Fressange wears gingham, below – she looks classic and put together but a little bit edgy thanks to her accessories. Perfection, right?

A few of my favorite gingham pieces are this fun skirt from J.Crew (worn with something casual up top like a slouchy white t shirt to keep it from looking too twee), this amazing halter top (I know, a halter top! but look how cute the back is), and this printed dress which would look so cute with some strappy sandals. I also have my eye on these Solid and Striped swimsuits. Thoughts? Are you into gingham or is it not a pattern that you can see yourself wearing?

    I think it all depends how it is styled!! It can really be hit or miss, but when done right it is so cute!

    yes! Such a fan. I’ve especially loved gingham pants. They’re great for the office and for dressing down as well! This post is such good inspiration.
