Nope, you don’t see double – but you see one of the trendiest patterns for this season. Some call it gingham, others say vichy. Either way, those checked blouses, skirts and trousers attract a lot of attention. This means, it’s high time to get inspired by styling ideas.
Gingham may consist of some small squares only, but thanks to its simplicity, there are various ways to wear it. This is also way it appeared in many different ways in the collections of this season: At the Dolce & Gabbana show, the duo paired a loose checked shirt with some wide embroidered trousers. At the same time, the British label House of Holland presented a purple gingham skirt with ruffles and a jacket with bold blue squares. However, if you are more in the mood for a simple look, you might go for a dress like the one of Christopher Kane. You can also find a more colorful version with a bow and a print at Peter Pilotto.
