Gingham: a pattern no longer reserved for primary school uniforms and picnic blankets, it’s officially summer 2017’s hottest print. The likes of Sienna Miller, fashion’s favourite ‘It’ girl Alexa Chung and street-style queen Gigi Hadid, have all rocked the print. Now, thanks to high-street saviours including Boohoo and ASOS, we can all embrace our inner Dorothy.
Here’s how real Looker users are checking it out *get it, check*
Don’t fight the frill and nail two trends in one with gingham and oversized ruffle sleeves a lá Alex. An off-shoulder top, bronzed shoulders and sun-kissed glow are the perfect combinations for SS17.
Up your style credentials like Amelia in a cropped co-ord set. Monochrome keeps it classic, while the gingham and embroidered pockets give it a modern edge – extra kudos for the statement, fringed shoes.
A leather jacket and slogan tee are the perfect way to toughen up a midi skirt if you hate looking overly polished. Do like the Hadid sisters and keep your jacket slung over your shoulders for an effortlessly cool vibe.
For the print phobic, pair your gingham with wardrobe staples like denim to dip your toes in the trend. Tick off two of Summer’s major trends by pairing your gingham with subtle frills – think Olivia Palermo, not Adam Ant.
