Gingham is a classic print that’s been around for decades, and it’s making a big return in 2017. The only problem with the print is that it can look like a tablecloth at a BBQ if you aren’t careful. I’ve found that by sticking to a few guidelines, you can sport the cute print in a chic, on-trend fashion. Here are my 3 steps to wearing 2017’s version of gingham:
- Choose dark blue or black. Though red or pink gingham might look cute on some girls, I prefer darker colors.
- Wear it in updated cuts and styles. Whether that’s a one-shoulder dress, like I have on here, or sleek slim-leg pants, choose a piece with a fresh style.
- Keep everything else neutral. I paired my dress with nude mules since the dress is pretty busy. Let the gingham steal the show and pair it with things like denim or other neutrals.
SHOP THE LOOK
If you’re looking for some modernized gingham pieces, here are some more that I’m loving. I really like the print mixed with open shoulders – it makes it a little more playful, right? And the jacket is so chic!
