Gingham Is The New Neutral
The Gingham Print is no picknick, it is this summer’s biggest trend. Without being too obvious, the pattern adds a little french sophistication to your look. Because of the black and white colors and the small lines, it is a very versatile print that looks like a neutral. It mixes with just about everything and became populair in the form of skirts at first. But those days are far gone, as the print is taking over our pants, dresses, tops and even coats.
Brigitte Bardot’s Iconic Gingham Look
Back in the days (the ’50 and ’60), Brigitte Bardot made the Gingham print one of her iconic looks. No wonder the print has such a southern french sophisticated look to it. She even wore the Gingham print while saying her I do’s in a light pink version.
Brigitte Bardot understood the simple but cool strength of the print very well. While most prints can be heavy on your outfit, the Gingham is it super easy to combine and goes with almost everything. It deserves a place next to the Breton stripes, polka dots and leopard print as a contemporary classic.
Gingham The New Contemporary Classic
Perfect to add some flirty and cool vibes to your summer outfit. The print has never been so popular, whether this is a ruffled skirt, wrap top or cropped pants. Although this trend is the latest thing now, it is fun to see the fashio icon rock the look like no other a few decades ago. This proves the style is totally timeless! This makes it a great investment because years from now it will still be a great piece to fall back on, a piece you can combine endlessly. For example a good quality gingham wool coat, a real showstopper you won’t regret investing in. See Brigitte Bardot’s best Gingham looks for some vintage inspiration.
