Gingham is such a summery print, so I am sharing different ways to wear it as the weather warms up! Gingham has been around forever, and I’m pretty sure it won’t ever go out of style, this season it is very in, and you can’t escape it. So, I’m writing to tell you how to wear gingham this summer and embrace it! Whether it’s a dress, skirt, or swimsuit, gingham is the perfect summer print!
In this post, I’m wearing the black and white large gingham, but gingham comes in plenty of colors and sizes. I love them all! Gingham is just like any other print, so you’ll notice the points I outlined can also work for many different prints!
How to Wear Gingham
Go Big & Make it Noticeable
Don’t hide it! I’m not always a big print person, but I fully believe that if you’re going to wear it, be bold. I always say when you try a trend or new style to do it intentionally, meaning own it and don’t try to hide it. Stand out with a big printed dress, top, or skirt pictured here! English Factory has a ton of gorgeous gingham and other printed pieces!
Pair it With Solids
Of course print mixing is fun! But if you’re here, you know I’m a fan of solids and neutrals, so this is my next tip. If you aren’t sure what to pair with your gingham piece, definitely go for a solid, and to make it easier, choose one of the colors within the gingham print already a Classic white or black tee would be perfect with a summery gingham skirt.
…and Other Prints
When print mixing, always remember to pair complementary colors and make sure your prints are one large and one small. So I might pair a small polka dot with this midi skirt or a mini floral. I have stripes on my shoes in this look!
Don’t Forget the Color
