The Summer season saw the rise of the gingham print and boy did it have some traction. You couldn’t go on anyones instagram who knew their stuff, without seeing the check print. Checked bardot tops and gingham pinafore dresses were the unofficial uniform of fashionistas far and wide.
We all know that gingham print isn’t new and has been sported by many of famous celebrity, supermodel and street stylers, alike. A prime example of someone wearing the iconic print is Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Who doesn’t love a bit of Dorothy.
Gingham did have a slight slump and was often labelled as the ‘dishcloth print’. and before that is was considered a preppy print that was associated with school girl pinafores. But now…Gingham is officially back! Needs some inspiration i hear you say? Well say no more. We have put together a list of styles that some of our favourite bloggers have been wearing this season. This list is perfect to help you fill that gingham void in your life. Check out the styles below, we’ve got style tips for all of them.
1. Throw a pinstripe slim fit blazer over a gingham prairie dress.

Style Notes: Gingham trousers teamed up with a red blouse is a sartorial match made in heaven
