5 Ways To Style Spring's Biggest Trend

5 Ways To Style Spring's Biggest Trend

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking, we know. Gingham on the other hand...

Sleeker and more unexpected than florals, more amped up than plain stripes and more sophisticated than polka dots, gingham is shaping up to be the next big print for the upcoming warmer months. It brings to mind picnics, long walks in the park and warm summer sunsets on the beach. Plus it plays off of two other big design inspirations in both fast fashion and higher end brands–shirting and ruffles. You could play it safe with a pair of white skinny jeans and wedge sandals or you could take the plunge and experiment with mixing prints and shapes. 

Florals

Top // Pants // Sneakers

Florals for spring may be practically required dressing but update them for 2017 with a Bardot inspired off-the-shoulder gingham top. White lace sneakers are equal parts sweet and comfortable, carrying you from an afternoon at the botanical gardens to drinks at a rooftop bar.   

Chic

Romper // Lace up shoes // Purse

Just because it shares a pattern with the humble picnic table doesn't mean checks can't be chic. A smartly tailored romper with micro checks pairs well with strappy heels and a ladylike straw bag for look that is as polished as an LBD but infinitely more stylish. 

Preppy

Pants // Espadrilles // Tee

Give navy gingham trousers - the ultimate retro summer WASP piece–cheekily update with whimsical espadrilles and a slouchy tie front tee. Never scramble for a summer barbecue outfit again.  

Stripes

Dress // Mules // Clutch 

Sometimes more really is more. Play up the geometric check pattern with accessories in contrasting stripes for an outfit that is dizzyingly dazzling. 

Sophisticated

Skirt // Sandals // Shirt

Let the ruffled pencil skirt take center stage by pairing it with clean, minimalist pieces. There's no going wrong with a sharp white button down (the ultimate Carolina Herrera vibes) and simple stacked sandals are comfortable(ish) and endlessly versatile.
