Gaga for Gingham

Gingham is so prevalent this season it’s practically a neutral. Never has looking like a tablecloth been so en vogue but I love it! My obsession started with with a pair of trousers from Primark, escalated into buying about 5 gingham tops (they’re all different, I promise) and now I’m even looking at gingham shoes. I have to remind myself that once summer is over, all items will be resigned to the back of the wardrobe so I shouldn’t go too mad but I just can’t resist. Here are a couple of my favourite recent outfits featuring this popular print.

This checked, embroidered beauty is from Zara which is my fashion mecca at the moment and it’s so comfortable. The jeans are an old Urban Outfitters pair but ripped jeans are everywhere right now and the mac is from Topshop last year. The espadrilles (another fave of mine) are also from Zara.

This cold shoulder top doesn’t translate as well on camera but looks better in real life. (photo editing tips are welcome!) It’s from H&M which is good for gingham on a budget. Another one of my favourite recent buys are these pink culottes from New Look which have the added bonus of not needing to be ironed. They also have an elasticated waist and plenty of room for an expanding gut after a big meal. What more could you want? These espadrilles were from River Island last summer but New Look have a wide selection at the moment.
