There are fashion trends that are seen on every corner these days, take off-the-shoulder tops or floral print dresses, for example. And, there are others that still feel fresh, unless you are not in the most instagrammable place in town, of course. Gingham print is one of those – it’s been all over Instagram this summer, yet I haven’t seen it much on the streets of Montreal for some reason. But isn’t that one of the most classic and chic prints ever, worn by beauty icons like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, to name a few? It’s true though that gingham is a pattern that should be worn with caution – nobody wants to blend in with that same cropped bardot top from Topshop or end up looking like a walking tablecloth. Let me tell you how to safely incorporate this trend in your everyday wardrobe.
The easiest and probably the best way to wear a gingham print item is to let it stand out on its own. Don’t mix it with other prints, unless you’re feeling edgy. If you want to continue wearing this pattern later this fall, go for a black and white or navy and white print. These are the most versatile and look amazing with not only neutral colours like nude, grey and black, but also with this season’s hottest colours: khaki, silver, chocolate brown and red.
Gingham print is definitely worth having, even if you are minimalist at heart. In addition to being extremely cute, it’s a trend that keeps coming back on the runway almost every season and never disappears from Pinterest, which, I would say, is definitely a good sign of long-lastingness.
