For anyone who thinks gingham is reserved for picnic blankets, jam jars and British summer school uniforms, think again. This bold print is back and it’s better than ever. The simple white-and-colored square pattern is easy to work into any outfit, adding texture without cluttering up your look – and it’s perfect for spring. 

There are several ways to wear it without looking like you’re late for a Little Red Riding Hood convention, and they’re super simple. Firstly, look out for larger squares. The bigger the squares, the bolder the pattern. And the bolder the pattern, the more purposeful it becomes. This could be the difference between becoming a street style star, and being mistaken for a chef. 

Next up, you want to look out for trending details and unique designs to make people know for sure that you’re high-fashion. We’re huge fans of how this print looks with ruffles, and everyone from Topshop to Pixie Market has their own take on it. Deconstructed shirts have also been a huge look in recent months, so while everyone else has opted for a banker stripe, why not stand out from the crowd in gingham?

Rock a ruffle skirt with a hot pink sweater for a vibrant daytime look, or style a statement jumpsuit with biker leathers for an unexpected evening outfit.
