To be honest, I’ve never really thought about wearing anything gingham before now. To me, this was always a fabric I associated with tablecloths and napkins. Case in point below…
Considering the amount of gingham fabric I’ve seen splashed all over fashion magazines and in stores at the moment, I figured that it’s having a moment and I should give it a chance… and I’m so glad I did.
I found this great, inexpensive clothing website, SheIn, which led to me getting this top as I loved two things about it – the ruffled sleeves (also having a moment this season) and the big bow at the front. Another great thing about this style of top is that it cinches in at the waist, giving you a nice silhouette.
While I have styled it with a leather mini, I think that it works well with everything from skinny jeans, wide leg pants (palazzo) and fitted skirts. Unless you are a wizard with mixing prints, I’d stick to plainer fabrics on the bottom half and let the top half be the centre of attention.
