It’s summer now and I wanted to share with you my newest obssesion: gingham.
Yes, I know. It’s on trend, why shouldn’t I be obssessed with it like everyone else is? But, to be honest, I don’t work like that. I don’t follow trends all the time, I only follow trends when I think they’ll genuinely look good on me or will fit my style and that’s how I think most of us should base our fashion choices.
Now that that’s been said. YES, I love gingham. Now, in case you’re wondering “What is gingham?”. Weeeelll, according to this article in GQ, gingham is a pattern marked by having colored threads going against uncolored threads, making it look like it’s ‘checked’ and reversible. I bet some of you thought that pattern was simply called “italian restaurant tablecloths”, lol.
I guess you learn something new every day!
So with my new obsession in mind, I bring you this look.
I got this dress from Nasty Gal and I absolutely love it. I think it’s a fresh take on this summer’s black and white gingham style.
I accessorized this dress with some red tasseled earrings to bring a pop of color in an otherwise monochrome look. I also opted for a straw boater hat, grey oval sunglasses, and pointy black shoes.
Here are some other cute gingham dresses that I loved:
1. Urban Outfitters’ Cooperative Straight Neck Gingham Dress
2. Revolve’s Maren Dress
3. J. Crew’s Smocked off-the-shoulder gingham beach dress
4. Charlotte Russe’s Gingham Cold Shoulder Shift Dress
5. Nasty Gal’s On Your Checklist Gingham Dress
6. Revolve’s Kiwi dress
I hope you like these dresses as much as I do. Let me know in the comments section below what you think.
Have a beautiful day, my loves!
