Gone are the days are where the only place you’d find gingham is a schoolyard, picnic blanket, or a Bo Peep costume. What was once considered preppy or saccharine is now the print of the season favored by the fashion elite. Seen at Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane, and Altuzarra, the checkerboard has taken a new lease on life with fresh silhouettes (goodbye fit and flare dress) and edgy tailoring.
When selecting your check of choice, pick tops with statement sleeves, off the shoulder detailing, or a cropped hem. These particulars will keep you sophisticated instead of square dance. Style with classic denim, a leather jacket, and an of-the-moment shoe to prevent the look from being overly nostalgic.
So, give gingham a go and check this trend off your list for Spring!
