Easy & Stylish Ways to Style the Gingham Print

I'm not going to lie: sometimes trends are really hard to follow. In between work and handling a cheeky six year old, who has the time to add one more trend in their wardrobe? I get it. It's way easier to get dressed in the morning and wear whatever is easy and comfortable. That's why when we add trends to our wardrobe it should be because we want to refresh our looks and feel more updated rather than adding more pressure to our already stressful lives. 

What do we need trends for anyway? you might ask. Well, we don't actually need them but adding something different in our closet and wear something new will make us feel more confident to get through the day. And that's what the gingham print is all about. And after a few seasons being one of the dominant prints on the high street is seems that gingham is here to stay. But how can you wear the trend without looking you're going for a picnic all the time? Here are four easy ways to master the gingham print trend. 


Mixing and Matching

To infuse a contemporary vibe into your gingham look, experiment with unexpected combinations. Pair a gingham blouse with distressed denim for a stylish contrast of textures. Alternatively, opt for gingham bottoms, such as pants, a top or a skirt, and pair them with a solid-colored top to create a balanced, fashion-forward look.

Bold Colour Choices

While the traditional black-and-white or blue-and-white gingham patterns are timeless, don't be afraid to explore a broader color palette. Incorporate gingham in vibrant hues, such as orange,
yellow, red, or green, to infuse a fresh and lively element into your outfit. Just remember to balance the boldness of the print with complementary neutral pieces.



Layering and Accessorising

Gingham can be a versatile addition to your layering game. Try wearing a gingham shirt under a leather jacket for a juxtaposition of edgy and classic styles. Alternatively, tie a gingham scarf around your neck or use it as a headband to add a pop of pattern to a monochromatic ensemble. Accessorize with minimalist jewelry to keep the focus on the print itself. Or if you really want to go for it, you can match your shoes with the dress.


Gingham in Contemporary Silhouettes

While gingham has a nostalgic charm, it can be easily incorporated into modern silhouettes. Look for gingham-printed pieces with contemporary cuts, such as a tailored blazer, wide-leg pants, or a midi-length dress with puff sleeves. These updated designs will give your gingham outfit a fashion-forward edge while preserving its classic appeal.





And there you have it. Now you're ready to play around with gingham print and have fun with your wardrobe. And you if you want to learn about the print and have a look at the most iconic gingham looks of all time, you can have a look here.
