Classic and preppy with a menswear edge; lets take a moment to appreciate gingham. I sort of liken it to plaid’s younger cousin that you mostly hang out with during spring and summer, but that’s just my take on it.Are you a gingham girl? Or guy for that matter? It’s great for layering as subtle pop of pattern, but when taking it center stage I like to pair it with other pieces that make it seem less sweet. It’s still preppy and classic, but with a fresh modern feel.
Since gingham can easily sway into menswear territory, why not take it there by pairing it with a borrowed from boys accessory? Mr. T wasn’t using his tie anyway… For balance, I styled it with this denim pencil skirt. I’m currently on the hunt for a distressed denim pencil skirt in a lighter color, which would convey a more relaxed feel, but this one keeps the look polished.
Add some glam accessories like a metallic clutch, animal print pumps and a little hardware, aka jewelry, for a modern feminine touch. Oh! And don’t forget to give it some attitude; a little popped collar never hurt anybody Now you’re ready to take that gingham out for a spin in style 😉
