02 Aug Welcome Spring 2017 with Gingham
For many of us we think of gingham and we’re taken back to our freckled faced school girl self. However, no longer reserved exclusively for playground fashion, gingham has grown up and become the ‘must have’ replacement for florals this spring. Fresh, and just a little bit retro, gingham will make you feel like stepping out for a good old fashioned picnic, complete with home made lemonade and wicker basket.
Gingham is a pattern that can lend itself to more stylish pieces than you would imagine. Making it’s recent appearance on runways, it has extended itself across a full range of fashion, with asymmetrical off the shoulder blouses, high waisted Capri pants, flowing dresses, pencil skirts and even shoes flaunting the new checked look.
A little edgy, while still being an old classic, the new gingham hype is ready to be given the attention it deserves. With fashionistas already jumping on board, now is the perfect time to go all out in a floor length maxi, or for those less confident with wearing an attention grabbing pattern, settle for a simple scarf.
