Spring 2015 Trend #4: Glamorous in Gingham

trend 4

Elle has already called gingham THE print of spring 2015.  If you liked my blog, “How to Wear Plaid Like a Grown-Up” from this past fall, then this is the trend for you! Similar to how it can be difficult to find a plaid flannel shirt that isn’t just for teenagers, gingham print needs to be worn in just the right way to keep the look sophisticated and chic. Here is how to do gingham without looking like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.



1. The Conservative Work Outfit

While gingham may be a traditionally younger looking print, nothing about this look is immature. Your Theory power suit will look amazing when paired with this structured DVF blouse. Studded pumps may not be appropriate for the office, but I love the edgy addition for drinks after work. If you want to go bold, try a gingham blazer. This pink version was to die for on Altuzarra’s runway! The jacket is such a great statement piece that all you need is a basic black tank and your black pants.ginghampic3

2. The Coffee with a Client Outfit

This outfit should be a little more casual, yet still polished and put-together. When wearing a preppy print such as gingham, keep the rest of your pieces simple and sophisticated. This pencil skirt paired with a t-shirt and a bold necklace is very Parisian chic. A pair of cropped pants with a flowy silk shirt is always a classic look as well.
