Lime Green Dreams
By now, we all know that our girl Nnenna can pull off any trend, no matter how tricky. Gingham can easily look dowdy and plain but rock the pattern in a bright lime green hue and it’s instantly exciting and fresh. We especially love how she added a wide belt to cinch the dress.
Although this is the gingham table cloth we’re all envisioning, this ain’t your normal gingham dress. Complete with an empire waist and puffy sleeves, this dress on Harling is anything but basic. It can easily be dressed up with heels or down with sneakers, too!
While some opt to test out a new trend with accessories, we suggest going all out like our girl Ada did in this gingham co-ord set. Not only is this outfit super cute, but paired with strappy square toed sandals, it’s also not over the top but just the perfect amount of extra!
If you’re in search of a totally new and fresh way to wear gingham, take a note from Anna and rock a pair of trousers outfitted in the pattern. A twist off the classic, you’ll stand out from the crowd and also gain major style points for taking a risk. This outfit is also office appropriate too as she added an oversized blazer, too!
Apart from red and white gingham being the classic, black and white check is also up there, too. This co-ord set on Anya is so sweet but so fashion forward too as she paired the suit with bright heeled mules and a fun hat!
Thought gingham outfits have to be summery and feminine? Well think again because we are officially swooning for how Courtnee is rocking her gingham trousers with cowboy boots. Not only are the boots fierce but the addition of a blazer and fanny pack give it an extra oomph, too!
Thanks to Emili, a gingham t-shirt is officially on our shopping must-haves list for the season. Her gingham top be styled with pretty much anything from jeans and skirts, to even overalls.
