GINGHAM | STYLING THE TREND

Today's post is dedicated to a trend that I've been loving recently. I fear it's set to replace my stripe obsession (I can't work out if that's a good or a bad thing!) Anyway, I thought I'd style up three gingham pieces into outfits today. I hope you like this kind of post, all items are linked if you're interested. Let me know if there are any other trends you'd like to see a post dedicated to in the comments.





For the first outfit I thought I'd keep it pretty simple and casual, integrating the gingham in a subtle way with a simple, summer appropriate, outfit.

T-shirt - ASOS
A white T-shirt is great for the summer, and a bold graphics adds a more casual vibe. I love this one from Levi's.

Shorts - ASOS
A pair of denim shorts are essential for a summer wardrobe. I did purchase this pair and can vouch for the fact they're super comfy, high waisted and a nice 'my bum is covered but they're not too long' kinda length.
I haven't owned a pair of denim shorts in years but have a feeling I might grab a pair of these in a different shade too.

Bag - Zara
Bucket bags are great for adding a boho feel to an outfit. They're also super cute and perfect if you don't have a huge amount to carry. The price of this one from Zara is amazing too!

Shoes - Newlook
The main article, this pop of gingham will bring you on the trend in a subtle way without having to change your wardrobe around. A simple sandal is grey to throw on with so many different outfits too.



A slightly more 'out there' gingham piece up next. And yup, those culottes made their way into my ASOS basket. This monochrome outfit could be styled up with a pair of heels but I plan to wear it with a pair of Vans for a casual everyday outfit.

A combination of two of my favourite trends, gingham and culottes. Culottes are so flattering on different figures and are a great alternative to trousers of dresses.

Another boho inspired piece. I picked this cute crochet top as it's slightly cropped so would sit above the waist of the culottes and also I love the mixture of pattern and texture. This adds a bit more interest to the black and white outfit.

I've worn my black Old Skools to death since getting them last year and I intend to wear them until they fall apart. Not the comfiest for walking long distances but they add a cool grungy vibe to any outfit.

I opted for this Whistles chain bag for this outfit to keep the smart elements of the outfit. I love mixing trainers with a smart outfit and I think this bag ties it all together really nicely.
