Everyone might have caught the plaid fever this year. But when it comes to prints, plaid’s preppy cousin gingham is THE summer print that’s here to stay. The vintage print is chic and extremely easy to style. Also, there are so many silhouettes, styles and outfits in gingham to choose from. Whether you plan to spend this sunny season in a tropical destination or the comfort of your humble abode, the easy-going gingham deserves that #1 spot in your summer wardrobe. Want to channel your inner Brigitte Bardot? We’ve got three looks that’ll help you style this sunny staple.
Casual Summer Vibe
Think summer and you’ll imagine yourself in a summer dress sipping lemonade or hanging out on the beach. Live out this ideal situation by opting for a black, button-down gingham dress. Style it with a fun, scallop-edged flats in bright red. To finish off the look, we suggest a raffia crossbody bag. Alternatively, you can accessorise with espadrilles and a black mini tote bag as well. This look is also apt for a brunch with friends or a casual outing.
Daytime Date Outfit
Sport a pair of gingham mules with floral embroidery so as to let your accessories do the talking. To draw attention to your shoes, opt for a minimal white cami top and style it with a denim slit skirt. Amp up this look by layering dainty necklaces together. Cinch your waist using a tan or black belt with a detailed buckle. This outfit is perfect for a daytime date.
The Holiday Look
Look chic in your holiday pictures wearing an off-the-shoulder gingham crop top. Pair this piece with wide-legged pants and carry a stylish bucket bag in white. This breezy look is not just effortless but also easy to style. Alternatively, you can opt for a belted top instead of the off-the-shoulder one and accessorise with big hoop earrings.
