Gingham is one of the top trending patterns for this spring season. It seems that the wholesome, picnic-in-the-park checked print has got a luxe makeover, and it is being seen in everything from flirty dresses, men’s-inspired shirting, cigarette pants, and crop tops. Here’s a look at some of the ways to bring a little gingham into your style this spring.


The idea of gingham-on-gingham may seem a little busy, but the key is in the color and the size of the print. As long as you use a cool hue, like an ethereal blue gingham and the check size is the same on the top and bottom, the look is extremely chic.

A large check in a vivid color like a bold burgundy gingham is the perfect way to incorporate the trending pattern into a full skirt—without looking like you picked up your picnic blanket and tied it around your waist. Top it off with a pair of Mary Jane heels and tucked in sweater for that “luxe lounging” look.

Believe it or not, cutesy gingham can look edgy. Try a black gingham A-line dress with a black leather moto jacket over the top—instant glam.

Combining prints is big this season, so why not incorporate two of the hottest trending prints into one outfit? The navy gingham crops are the perfect partner to this large print floral top. The cool color palate and differing pattern sizes make the look work, the hot pink heels make it pop.

An oversized button up in an oversized navy gingham print is surprisingly slimming. It is the perfect relaxed piece to top off crisp white ankle denim and saturated blue driving moccasins for weekend getaways.

A streamlined pencil skirt in a small check black gingham gives the print a super sleek and sophisticated look. Pair it with a tucked in black button up and a killer pair of black heels and you’ve got yourself an incredibly chic look that can go from desk to drinks with ease.
