How to wear gingham the 2021 way! The most sought after print of the season!
I don't need to tell you girls that gingham isn't exactly a groundbreaking print.
If you went to primary school in the UK and wore a dress, you almost definitely wore a version of it at some point. The print loved by Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz has, unsurprisingly, been around for centuries.
It's thought to have originated in Southeast Asia and was later seen in the 18th century in mills in Manchester. But it's no longer just a twee preppy print associated with school-girl pinafores—it can now fit into any wardrobe.
In the fashion world, gingham (like polka dots and florals) rolls around every summer. It's why it's always a good idea to invest in the print as you'll wear it for so many summers to come.
Please don't start yawning yet, because 2021's take on the print is one of the more exciting we've seen in a while. There are bold pink versions, lavender and of course, there is still a lot of black gingham, so if you're looking for something a bit more traditional, worry not…
Some fresh ideas on how to wear gingham this season.
Go bold go pink, keeping it simple here but how about changing up your footwear it can have a dramatic effect - check on check! Just add checked vans or maybe a leopard print sneaker.
The beautiful classic soft blue + white gingham, can be worn in so many ways! Layer with knit vest over, unbutton and wear tee under. Summer 2021 has seen the rise of the gingham shirt (an all time fave of mine) She's pretty but can be worn androgynously - a wardrobe forever piece! Wear with shorts, jeans or midi skirts. Or do like the Scandi girls and wear dresses over jeans come the cooler months.
The Summer pretty sleeper style dress, the sleeper is designed from the shoulder detail, having the ability to wear on/off shoulder and kinda represents pretty sleepwear. Wear for day with sneakers/sliders or dress up with a block or kitten heel sandal for summer soirees. Loving the lavender this season!
Talking of lavender! Not ready for ginghams why not try an accessory!
Classic and very Parisian our fave black + white combi. Whether it’s a classic style dress or the 'very now' dungas it's a wardrobe winning style that will elevate your look in an instant. Just add sass!
