Once reserved for Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, gingham was spotted on the runways of Michael Kors, Altuzarra, Oscar De La Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and Bottega Veneta. While we love us some Dorothy (and Toto, too!), it’s best to keep this trend modern.
Look polished but comfortable at a barbeque or morning walk along the beach in a pair of gingham shorts and a t-shirt or a breezy dress, like this halter from Michael Kors.
Skinny jeans or white pants and a gingham button up or tunic are perfect for going from casual Friday at the office to your favorite happy hour spot.
While balancing one gingham-printed item with neutrals can keep things from looking over-the-top, risk takers can channel their inner-Rihanna by wearing the print head-to-toe. A pair of wide-legged trousers and a blazer or a pencil skirt and crop top lets you stand out while keeping lines clean.
Ease into the trend with a gingham purse or silk scarf. We love this two-tone silk scarf by DVF.
When temperatures drop and seasons change, show that even gingham can look edgy. Throw on a leather jacket or pair a leather shell with black-and-white gingham pants for looks that would make even Glenda green with envy.
