All About Gingham

Gingham - We saw it in 2014 and now once again the Gingham trend is back in shops and near enough everyones wardrobe, and for sure everyones Instagram feeds. From checked shirts, ruffled skirts, thrilled trousers and co-ords, this print has made a return with near enough every brand stocking the monochrome and brightly coloured print trend. 

Fact of the Day - The truth is that gingham doesn't actually mean checked, but more so stripped (horizontal and vertical lines overlapping) yes creating a checkered appearance, but coming from the Malayan word "genggan" in English meaning 'stripe'. 

My love for it started from seeing my favourite fashion blogger, Emelie Natascha aka Emitaz wearing a monochrome gingham thrilled skort from Zara... which sadly sold out but
I found it on depop and of course had to buy it!! She paired it perfectly with a white cropped Guess jumper and turned a dressier item into a casual look (picture below). She recently posted the second picture onto her Instagram of a gingham cutout dress from Revolve, which added to my love of all things gingham as well as it fitting in well with the deconstructed shirt trend that was all over catwalk for SS17 and of which I spoke about in my previous posts HERE

As the Zara skort no longer exists I found an identical skirt on Pretty Little Thing (click here to shop) & the Revolve dress (here).

My opinion is that the gingham trend is going to stick around, as it is a very good transitional piece, from summer to winter - not that we want to be thinking about winter just yet - but it can easily be dressed for both. As well as it already making an appearance back in 2014, you have no worry of it going out of trend any time soon!
