The winter months seemed long and wearing all those layers of clothing to stay warm for one thing was uncomfortable and made it hard to move (seriously, have you ever tried to move fast in 2 pairs of pants, 3 shirts and a jacket? The storyline of a soap opera moves faster) but it is finally time to say goodbye to winter and hello to its warmer, more pleasant weathered cousin; spring! The runways this season were filled with both new trends and some of our past favorites returning. One trend making a comeback is gingham, the playful plaid that the Wizard of Oz’s Dorothy donned except it has been revived for the runways this season.
Gingham is so versatile it can be as American as baseball and apple pie or reminiscent of a south of France beach. The pattern may have retro appeal but has evolved to include sheer pieces, macro and micro patterns, modernizing the classic check print. The gingham of 2015 is more chic, sexy and with so many different styles it is easily a print that looks great on everyone.
Are you ready to try out this retro favorite? Try the print in lighter colors to give off an effortless, fun and flirty vibe. Size isn’t everything when it comes to gingham, wear the pattern in either oversized prints or micro prints, either way you will look checker chic. Mixing and matching different prints isn’t a fashion faux pas anymore, it is in this season and a fun way to liven up an outfit. If you want to try this out try pairing a gingham pattern with a print in a complimentary color tone.
