We’ve all seen the episode or photo of Samantha from Sex and the City on top of the roof with her favorite girls, drinking a beverage wearing an adorable checkered piece. Gingham is a classic summer print. – and this year, it’s hotter than ever!
The print dominated runways during fashion week, hitting the runways of major designers like Carolina Herrera and Peter Pilotto. It’s covered every piece in our wardrobe, from off the shoulder tops and jackets, to skirts and dresses. But before you grab a gingham piece from the hanger of your favorite store, read up! It’s easy to step your foot out the door looking like a table cloth. (Harsh, but true).
We rounded up three pieces that are sure to make you look chic with the playful pattern and less picnic. Check them out below.
A form fitting and sexy dress is the way to go when choosing for gingham. The angle on this frock makes for a sexier and less childish look. It shows off the perfect amount of skin, giving you a sultry appeal.
