3 Ways With Gingham
If you thought gingham was strictly for quaint Italian tablecloths and Dorothy-wannabes, you can think again. While admittedly adorable, the classic check has grown up for SS17, and we’re seriously digging its new vibe. Ladies, leave Toto and those red shoes behind, we certainly aren’t in Kansas any more…
Spring’s new way with gingham juxtaposes cute and curt, channelling a ‘nobody’s baby’ attitude with sass for days. Take things down the monochrome route, with simplistic black and white, or go bold and bright with blue, à la Dorothy. However you choose to werk it for SS17, there’s just one rule: make sure you bring it, girl!

Striking the perfect balance between tough and timid is easy, just opt for your fave distressed denim, or throw on a biker (another item about to tear it up, this season). The brasher, the better, baes!
