STYLE ADVICE: Gingham Love

April 28th, 2017 at 2:00am

If you are looking for an easy way to update your outfit this spring, look no further than incorporating a dash of gingham into your outfit. Everything from tops, pants, skirts, and jackets can currently be found in gingham, and the print’s surprising neutrality makes it easy to mix and match with other pieces of clothing you already own. With the endless amounts of options available this season, an option that fits your own style is sure to be found!

This Fashionista’s chic winter to spring transitional outfit is the perfect style inspiration for how to rock this season’s “it-print.” She made sure that her cropped gingham print top was the center of attention by making the rest of the look all black. To keep this look geared toward the spring weather that is finally emerging, she paired her top with a black button-down denim skirt with a high-waist fit.

One of my favorite aspects of this Fashionista’s outfit is her tights. From afar, they look like basic black tights, but up close you can see how they have little heart details going down the front of the leg. Though one might think that the hearts would clash with the gingham, the two prints, in reality, pair well together. With mixing prints, make sure to stay within the same color scheme and to keep each print a different size. To finish the look, she kept it simple with a pair of comfortable black booties that will keep her moving throughout her day.

Remember that although gingham is having a serious style moment right now, personal style never has to be sacrificed for the sake of following trends. There are limitless ways to personalize trends to fit your own personal style. That is part of what makes fashion all the more fun!
