Gingham, the pattern associated with UK school summer dresses and Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ has, obviously, been around for a while. In recent years it has climbed the social ladder and found its footing firmly at the top, within the bracket known to many as the wardrobe mainstays.
As reliable for summer as florals and polka dots, gingham is the trend that just keeps on giving. In the world of fashion, Victoria Beckham has recently jumped on the bandwagon with her diffusion line Victoria by Victoria Beckham releasing a variety of iterations of the picnic print, but it is the sustainable, independent brands that have really taken the print under their wing. Look at By Megan Crosby, for example, or Molby The Label; both brands have been catapulted to stardom as a result of their coveted pieces, a high percentage of which are crafted from sumptuously sweet and colourful gingham.
This trend is one of the reliable ones that rolls around every summer, so you’ll always be able to find something you want. If you’re ready to jump in, why not try an easy-breezy gingham maxi dress? Alternatively, the trend has made its way to accessories, so you can inject your crisp white ensembles with a pop of colour by way of a gingham bag or hair accessory. However you decide to adopt the trend, you can be sure to feel confident in knowing you’re investing in a trend that isn’t going anyway anytime soon. Isn’t that sweet?
