Style Inspo: Gingham

Have you ever harbored a secret desire to dress as a picnic blanket?

Looked at your grandma’s curtains and gone “I wonder if those come in an A-line midi style?”

Neither had I, until recently. One perusal of any West Village brunch spot these days will yield an eyeful of spring’s favorite street style celeb: gingham. Gingham everything. I would say it’s a new, up-and-coming trend but that would be offensive to style icons like Dorothy (of the Emerald City Dorothy’s) and Laura Ingalls Wilder, who have been rocking this shit for literal centuries.

But it has come back with something of a fervor, if the SS17 shows and/or real life are any indication. My personal favorite look that I would gladly relinquish my firstborn for comes from House of Holland. It’s going to come in handy when I run off to form an all-female country-rock band in Nashville next month.

If you’re similarly intrigued by this fresh and fun print but need some inspiration on how to style it, fear not! Here are some of my fave looks featuring gingham, along with several pieces currently in my virtual shopping cart that you too can own.

    Love gingham this year! I totally have a gingham item on the way to me as we speak.

  13. I love all the different cuts of these! I think gingham can look like a picnic table if it doesn’t have clean and unique lines haha

  14. I really like how in all of these the print isn’t in your face. I am so terrible with styling anything in a print like this, so this definitely gave me a few ideas!

  15. I’m loving the gingham print this spring 🙂 I’ve been seeing it EVERYWHERE! I especially love the capris in this print and dresses!
