If you think gingham is reserved for picnics, prairies and pin-up girls, think again. This geometric print is back with a vengeance – spotted on the likes of Victoria Justice, Rihanna and Emmy Rossum. It’s also graced the runways of Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg. Follow our top tips to rock the look.
Choose classic gingham fashion
This print looks best on simple tailored items: button-down shirts, shift dresses, trousers and pencil skirts. Opt for the classic colour combinations such as black and white, blue and white or red and white. For a softer look, try pastel shades or neutrals.
Let the print take centre stage
Gingham separates work best when paired with simple items in a neutral hue. Think a gingham blouse with a pair of black jeans or a gingham skirt with a white top.
Keep things chic with the right accessories
Basic black or nude accessories keep gingham looking stylish. You could also add a pop of colour by opting for a bold primary colour (such as red or yellow) for one of your accessories. You can also turn things around and go for gingham accessories with a simple outfit.
