Gingham Style

It’s been a while – but here is my first summer blog and this week it’s all about gingham. This easy to wear print is a spring and summer perennial as it re-appears every season, and has done for the past few years. In fact, one of this year’s it dresses was none other than a square necked gingham number from New Look.


If you like the monochrome look or want an alternative to all the florals and animal prints out there, then this is a lovely option that you can combine with a multitude of accessories – from classic black, to tan, metallic or even splashes of brights.

Here’s my top ten picks for you:

Jodie Top £35 Marie & Lola

This also comes in a blue and is such an easy style to pair with white, black or blue denim jeans or shorts. You can even dress it up with black trousers.


Ruth Blouse £89 Baukjen

Gingham doesn’t just have to be for summer – this is something you can wear year round and ticks that smart/casual box so you can do a lot with it, white denim as here to tailoring.


Gingham Skort £27.99 Zara 

Just love this…


Gingham Check Tiered Skirt £175 ME+EM

This is a beauty that you can wear year round with tights, boots, leather jacket and then trainers/espadrilles/sandals and various tops for now.


Black Gingham Tiered Midi £14.99 New Look 

Only available in some sizes and there is a similar one for £23.99



Lizon Mini Dress £45 Marie & Lola

This also comes in blue and white and is a nice, easy dress to throw on in the sunshine.


Gingham Puff Sleeve Midi Dress £27.99 New Look

I think this might be my favourite dress – I’ve tried on several and they’ve all been oversized and tent-like which doesn’t work for me so this will certainly not swamp.


Ruth Dress £27 Baukjen

If you missed out buying this one, then it’s yours to rent for two weeks!



Gingham Nina Midi Dress £45 Nobody’s Child

Another very wearable style from this sustainable brand which uses viscose from sustainable wood sources …


Gingham Tiered Midi Dress £47.20 Oasis

And finally if black and white isn’t your thing, then try this little blue and white number.
