GINGHAM IS BACK
ok, so gingham -- aka spring's favorite print -- may not have actually gone anywhere. it's a true classic pattern, akin to stripes and florals. and like spring florals, it makes it's return each year. which means you probably already own a gingham item or two hidden in your closet.
pull those pieces out front and center because: this season is gingham's time to shine!
forget gingham picnic blankets, and sugary sweet Easter dresses. right now, gingham is cool, fresh and sophisticated. i especially love it because brands and fashionistas alike are fearless when it comes to piling on the prints: that means gingham with gingham and more gingham for this print-happy girl.
read on for a mishmash of gingham-patterned inspiration that i've been really loving as of late, from vintage finds, to right-now styles. but, you won't see the typical spring pastel pallet here -- i've been drawn to bright blues, oranges and deep grays instead.
MISS PRINTS TIP!
try playing with scale when mixing gingham with gingham. or buy a piece that already comes pre-mixed -- like this amazing blue jumpsuit.
love this photo of Marilyn Monroe. she's rocking a classic gingham look -- i would wear this right now!
