It’s officially summer! Bring on backyard BBQ’s with corn on the cob and Bruce Springsteen, sweltering days at the beach with salty hair, sandy toes, and the sunburn that (unfortunately) goes along with it, and cold beers and long chats with friends by the fire pit.
When I think of summer, all of these things come to mind. In the fashion world, however, all I’m thinking is gingham. Tartan plaid’s summertime sister is a hot trend for the summer, and there are so many ways to incorporate it in your wardrobe, no matter your age. For the minimalist that avoids pattern like the plague, try testing the waters with a gingham scarf or pointy flat with your jeans and tee. For the risk-taker, try an all-over gingham dress or blazer. I gravitate toward black and white gingham for an edgier vibe to pair with my vans, a leather jacket, and a red neck scarf for a pop of color, however, Beth delves into the preppy world with gingham button downs and blazers in colors like navy and coral.
