I am ga-ga for gingham! There, I said it. This is not a new thing or a passing phase, I’ve been ga-ga for gingham since I was about four years old. My Mother used to sew a lot of my clothes and almost all outfits had gingham, smocking or ribbon, winning outfits had all three.
This spring/summer I feel like the gingham gods decided to party, the check with the mostest is everywhere and even in plus sizes, YAY!
Now for those of us who used to dine at pizza hut (hands up) gingham may hold different memories but it’s been used in fashion since the mid 18th century and screen goddesses have had a love affair with gingham for decades. Recognize anyone?
Gingham mostly comes in white teamed with black, navy and blue but red, lemon, pink and lime are also popular. In fact gingham works in lots of shades. It’s bold and playful and looks fabulous teamed back with white, red or black in summer but can be worn all year round. Have fun pattern clashing gingham too.
Let’s check out some super gingham pieces (see what I did there )
What about you, are you ga-ga for gingham too?
