20 Style Tips On How To Wear Gingham Dresses And Skirts

Okay, fine, I admit it: I’ve been going a little gingham crazy lately. Not only is my closet filled with gingham skirts, dresses, and shirts, but I’ve already written about the topic for Gurl (still helpful advice though!), and I continue to be tempted to buy even more gingham pieces. I can’t help it! It’s a classic pattern that will probably never totally go out of style, and it’s fun and especially trendy right now. Why wouldn’t I want to talk about it even more?

If you want to get in on the gingham trend, you definitely don’t have to stop at a shirt. There are tons of gingham dresses and skirts that make for really adorable outfits. The pattern can be made to look preppy and chic, or more fun and eclectic – you can decide based on what you wear the pieces with. There are so many different ways to style this print to make it look a lot more unique, which is one of the best things about it. And I’m betting that gingham will be just as popular in the fall as it has been this summer. Why not pick up a gingham dress or skirt during all of the end of season sales? So, if you’re now just as in love as I am, check out these style tips on how to wear gingham dresses and skirts:

1. Pair a gingham mini skirt with a graphic tee and sneakers for a casual and stylish look.

2. A lot of gingham skirts are black and white, but they don’t have to be. Choose a bright pattern, like this magenta skirt. It stands out a little more.

3. Mix it up and wear your gingham skirt with a striped top. Keeping the colors similar is a good way to keep it less overwhelming.

4. You can play around with that concept with accessories too, like wearing a gingham skirt with brightly patterned shoes.

5. Gingham is a pretty feminine pattern, so add some ~edge~ to it with something like a pair of combat boots. It’s unexpected and looks really cool.

17. Gingham is pretty casual, but it can also be made more formal. Add a fancy shirt and a pair of feels to a gingham skirt – dramatic makeup and the right jewelry make this work.

    These gingham dresses indeed look very pretty and are a fantastic alternative option to lace dresses and can be used for casual outings or social group meetups etc. These are very comfortable and cosy as one uses them for regular basis rather than traditional cotton dresses
