Gingham is one of my favorite patterns and it seems to never get old. The print has been around for a while now – you might recognize it on Dorothy, who wore it in The Wizard of Oz or the pink gingham wedding dress that Brigitte Bardot wore for her nuptials! Designers such as Derek Lam, Oscar de la Renta, and Balmain have even showcased it on the runway as part of their collection for Spring 2014.

Such a classic print lends itself well for both a dressed-up or casual feel. This is my dressed-up version of the outfit ‐ something I would wear to work. By adding a pop of color, I’m able to create a unique contrast to the navy blue and thus, a visually catching look. For a more casual feel, I would pair the gingham with some boyfriend jeans, canvas sneakers, and a baseball cap. What’s your favorite gingham piece?
