5 Ways To Style Spring's Biggest Trend
Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking, we know. Gingham on the other hand...
Sleeker and more unexpected than florals, more amped up than plain stripes and more sophisticated than polka dots, gingham is shaping up to be the next big print for the upcoming warmer months. It brings to mind picnics, long walks in the park and warm summer sunsets on the beach. Plus it plays off of two other big design inspirations in both fast fashion and higher end brands–shirting and ruffles. You could play it safe with a pair of white skinny jeans and wedge sandals or you could take the plunge and experiment with mixing prints and shapes.
Florals for spring may be practically required dressing but update them for 2017 with a Bardot inspired off-the-shoulder gingham top. White lace sneakers are equal parts sweet and comfortable, carrying you from an afternoon at the botanical gardens to drinks at a rooftop bar.
Just because it shares a pattern with the humble picnic table doesn't mean checks can't be chic. A smartly tailored romper with micro checks pairs well with strappy heels and a ladylike straw bag for look that is as polished as an LBD but infinitely more stylish.
