Dorothy made the print famous, but gingham has been creeping up in modern fashion for years now, and we’re all about this classic print for summer. If this pretty pattern takes you right back to the farm, you’re not alone, but that doesn’t make it any less perfect for rocking during summer time. Gorgeous gingham pieces have been spotted all over the streets of some of the world’s most fashionable cities, and even on celebs like the ever-stunning Reese Witherspoon. So, how can you sport gingham without looking like you’re on your way to milk a cow? Keep silhouettes modern and on the sassy side to ensure your look is sweet as can be.


Flirty pieces like a crop top or skirt is a fabulous way to rock gingham. We adore the way a black and white gingham pattern looks when paired with a bold red lip and luxe gold accessories. Try a gingham crop top with a little leather pencil skirt to take it for a nighttime spin. Otherwise, a pair of black or denim shorts is another great way to let your top do all the talking.

A gingham pencil skirt can be paired with all kinds of pieces to create an ensemble that’s just right for summer time. From a black camisole to a little white tank top and faux-leather crop tops in between, a gingham skirt is versatile and is oh-so-adorable during the warm month, though they can easily be made for winter, as well. Throw on a black motorcycle jacket into the mix to jazz things up once the weather cools down.
