Five Must-Have Gingham Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe

5 Must Have Gingham Pieces

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

When I think of gingham I think of pictures of Audrey Hepburn in a blouse and gingham crops riding a bicycle or Brigette Bardot in a gingham dress. Having grown up with a love of 50’s and 60’s icons, I have always had a sweet spot for this pattern.

However, as much of a fan I am of the classics, I am loving the fresh and updated take on gingham that many people are embracing. I even recently purchased this MINKPINK dress, which combines this classic pattern with ruffles and the oh so flirty one shoulder trend. I’m also loving this cold shoulder Amanda Uprichard dress.

How are y’all embracing gingham this spring/summer?

Lovin’ Right Now: Velvet

Velvet, like suede and leather, is one of the most versatile types of fabric out there.

Pair a velvet top with skinny jeans, cool booties, and circle frame sunglasses and you’ve got a chic modern rocker vibe going on. If you want to dress up a basic blouse, pair it with a cute velvet mini skirt (a la Karen Gillian) or cool velvet flares. I also love how a velvet dress can be sexy or chic, depending on the cut of it and how you accessorize it.

And for all you shoe lovers out there, velvet booties, pumps, mary janes, and boots are the IT shoe right now. So get them while you can because they’re going fast!

What are your thoughts on the velvet trend?
