Last summer, we saw fashion fiends go gaga over gingham everything. It seemed like everyone’s closet wasn’t spared from cropped trousers, rompers, scrunchie tops and sundresses that came in the ever so popular table cloth fabric.
Fast forward to this year and nothing much has changed, except that they’re now available in many more variations that are anything but basic. The 2019′ way of styling gingham? Combining varied sizes or colours of the checks be it in the outfit or the apparel itself, or balancing out the old-fashioned fabric with poppy and pastel shades. It’s as if those checks have never been associated with old-school pinafores, picnic mats and table cloths.
But we would say the biggest rule to abide by, is to steer clear of classic gingham colours like red, navy, or black, to avoid looking like an old-fashioned drab.
