| Summer is back and so is their partner, the Gingham trend. These two come hand in hand and there are so many styles from summer dresses to cute summer tops.
Somewhere over the (fashion) rainbow, spring's most noteworthy designers from Miu Miu to Stella McCartney have made gingham the epitome of cool again. It's a fabric choice that has lasted through the ages. From Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, Audrey Hepburn in those black and white peddle-pushers and Alexa Chung around 85% of the time. I'm sure you'll agree, it's no wonder the print is always returning each summer, with a stylish line up of lovers like that!
Pretty much the most classic print since the leopard, gingham is that eternally chic textile that looses retro glamour and effortless style. Ever making us eager for the warm weather, the high street and beyond are filling their gingham boots with every possible silhouette and colour — from easy weekend dresses to ruffled black and white trousers — making it pretty much impossible to escape the trend this Summer, and it doesn't stop there. If Instagram is anything to go by, it looks like there's no other item that will complete your SS17 wardrobe than a touch of the beloved checkerboard.
Worn H-2-T, with a pop of colour or mixed with other patterns, gingham can really do no wrong. Not just for retro girls and lovers of nostalgia, the new way to wear your gingham is simple - wear it with everything. Layered over a simple white tee, chucked on with a sweater, this is the print which will do your summer wardrobe no harm.
