THE PRINT - DU - JOUR
All Started on the catwalks. Fashion world gave the brands a toy called Gingham to rebel against. Then , we saw it everywhere from high-end shops to the high – street and the local girl next door.
I was getting information about the fabric and the history of Gingham when I found out that the trend was highly on top fromalmost the early 50’s. Brigitte Bardot wore it couple of times and so did Katherine Hepburn – from a French allure to an all American Vibe!
It is undeniable that Gingham is having its golden moment and enjoying its crown on the stage of fashion world. It is almost inevitable not to see how the trend has transformed over the years and turned into a modern , versatile piece of fabric that every girl has fell in love with this season.

HOW TO STYLE IT?
One word- minimalistic – is the key word in this trend. If you are too worried about the picnic cloth connotation , I would advice you to use Gingham with either black or white. These two neutral colors go so well with black and red gingham printed items. Use minimal accessories and opt for one coloured footwear.
Give a Twirl in a Gingham Skirt and add a Tee with a slogan as simple as it is – it will let you easily stand out in the crowd. Throw on a bold pair of sunglasses and leave the shoes plain and comfy.
Skip the Black-and-White-Checkered Squares and opt For Red. I spiced the look up by adding the waist belt here. Brave but as the Belt is in cotton material plus in white color – It didnt make the attire look very messy. I could pair the dress with white sneakers too. Nevertheless , I went for a classier choice – Chanel Flats.
