Move Over Florals, This Print Actually is Groundbreaking

School is officially out (for most of us, that is) and it’s time to put away the dull and drab colors that we’ve been wearing as a mode to reflect our inner feelings towards final exams. No matter what scores you ended with, there’s a totally different grading system when it comes to summer and it has nothing to do with calculus. The key to success? A fresh summer wardrobe that includes absolutely no grey. I mean it – none.

This summer, it’s all about prints – or dare I say print (singular). Gingham is seriously everywhere and soon it’ll be on you, too. It’s most intriguing quality is it’s ease of implementation into basically any outfit. Unlike florals, which can scare off the less daring, gingham is simple and sophisticated without being boring. Even better, you can find just about anything that you’re looking for in the print—from daytime dresses, to swimwear, to lightweight trousers.

Check out how a couple of your favorite fashionable college students implemented this print into their everyday wardrobe and scroll on for some of our favorite gingham steals.
