Eye on Fashion – Gingham Style

 

Spring has officially sprung and this week’s fashion trend comes directly from picnics and backyard cookouts – gingham! First, a little history lesson about this fabric. Gingham originated in Europe and was originally striped. Eventually it became the the checkered pattern we know and love and it’s synonymous with country chic fashion. Perhaps the most famous gingham dress is Dorothy’s in The “Wizard of Oz” – who can forget that adorable blue and white checked number with the red ruby slippers?

Well we’ve got our version of that combo today with these adorable gingham dresses with red accessories. Whether black or blue and white checked, red adds the perfect punch of color to any gingham outfit. Keep it sweet and simple with a pair cork wedges, classic bag, aviators and bangles and you’re ready for anything! You can find these fashions here. ginghamredIf a dress is not your thing, go for a gingham on the bottom in a swingy skirt or a pair of shorts. Pair with your favorite top and a white denim jacket. Bright  yellow accessories add a touch of sunshine to these country inspired styles. You can find these fashions here.
