20 Style Tips On How To Wear Gingham Clothes

This spring, a lot of fun patterns, prints, and fabrics are in style in a major way. One of my favorite trends for spring is gingham, which popped up on the spring and summer 2015 runways in all different fabrics, colors, and clothing options. Gingham is a checkered pattern that is really very similar to plaid, and I’m a huge fan of plaid (I basically lived in it this winter), so obviously, I love this too.

When a lot of people think of gingham, they think of picnic blankets or button-down shirts. But trust me, there are so many better options for gingham than a blanket. Get creative with this pattern this spring, and learn how to wear it in new and fun ways. Need some inspiration? Here are 20 style tips on how to wear gingham clothes, with outfit ideas from fashion bloggers and real girls.

 

1. Go for a super summery outfit with gingham shorts and a simple top, like a button-down. This preppy way to do shorts is a step above casual.

7. Wear your gingham button-down shirt open, like a cardigan, with destroyed jeans and a plain tee. A pair of heels instantly dress things up, but you can go for flats for something more casual.
