We’ve recently posted about two trends to watch – espadrilles and mini-bags – and today we’re talking about gingham! Gingham is a pattern that is traditionally viewed as girly and youthful, but this season’s offerings have shown that it’s suitable for adults as well. All of the big designers such as Prada and Versace featured this trend in their SS17 shows, making it a must try for this season.

By having feminine silhouettes such as tailored shirts and jackets, the trend has a more sophisticated look. Furthermore, with different color combinations such as nude and white rather than just red, black or blue, there’s something for everyone in this trend! Other takes on gingham feature embroidered detailing, incorporating another trend for Summer. If you’re not confident in wearing head-to-toe gingham, try incorporating small accessories such as neckties to try out the big Summer trend.Screen Shot 2017-05-14 at 4.42.13 PM

It’s not just designers embracing the gingham trend, celebrities are too and they’re giving us lots of inspiration on how to style our own gingham pieces! Alexa Chung goes for a more structured and modern look, pairing gingham trousers with a printed blouse and heels. Taylor Swift is a long-time lover of gingham, and shows us how to wear a more feminine look with her gingham dress.
