With the onset of monsoon and all things romantic, all we can think of is stuffing our wardrobe with nothing but preppy checkered pattern outfits. All thanks to the pop beauty Taylor, for bringing the 80’s much-hyped about couture back to trend. And before you curse us for donning picnic blankets or aprons, take a quick look at the easy-peasy ways to style your gingham print. And don’t forget to rock it, like always 😉
- Check Mate:
Just because you are chained to your desks doesn’t imply it can’t be fun and quirky. Take these monochrome Gingham pants from desk to dinner flamboyantly. Pair them with a solid bright tank and add a classic blazer for an evening soiree with a statement accessory. A dash of smile and high heels will be enough to woo those men 😉
- Old School Glam:
Bring back the nerdy look with this effervescent Gingham midi-dress. Tone down the preppy print by pairing with your classic favorites. Because a hint of vintage is the mantra to our old-school look (Shh.. it’s a well-kept secret). Pop a leather jacket for that tough-girl look or add a sleek bag to neutralize the look.
Who says the print needs to steal the show? Instead, use it as an unexpected accent in your look, popping it underneath sleeveless dresses for a fun burst of pattern. Accentuate your waist by adding a sleek belt always works, so ‘werk’ it up girl J
Tip: A Gingham top or shirt flatters all shapes and looks great with denim, add some edge by pairing with black peeptoes.
- Get disheveled:
A great way to muss up the prim vibe is to keep it slightly messy. You can never go wrong with a plaid skirt and tennis shoes. Keep your shirt half-tucked, bed head hair and don those large mirrored glasses to complete the look. Voila! You are all set to exude the devil-may-care vibe. A go-to ensemble for those hangover mornings :p
- Dreamy Silhouette:
Our personal favorite for those girl’s day out or brunch dates is undoubtedly a bright Gingham statement skirt with a classic typo tee. Don your cat eye wayfarers to add some drama and wear a bright, beautiful smile to steal hearts all the way.
Tip: If you have an aesthetic or petite build, wear your bold color gingham on the bottom half.
