There’s an art to mastering the transition between winter and spring. After months of bundling up in warm layers and dark, earthy colors you’re just itching to lighten things up and let a bit of skin show… but the second you take a risk, the finicky weathers got you freezin’.
A sneaky way to add a little spring to your step?? Gingham.
Crisp, Neutral, Versatile, Classic. While gingham can often come off overly preppy and prim, the right styling can turn this classic staple into a quirky touch. The beauty of Gingham is that changing the size of the print can completely change the look of your outfit.
A small scale print can almost look like a solid from far away, giving your outfit subtle interest. Because the small print is a bit more subtle, it can work with more outrageous silhouettes. A large print, in contrast, works well making a big impact on a simple silhouette. Pair a sleek gingham pant in a large print, with a simple, little top and you really don’t need much more for a complete outfit.
In addition, gingham comes in a variety of materials and weights… So again, perfect for transitional weather. Pick a gingham printed wool skirt with a lightweight t-shirt, or a gingham button down peeking out of a layered sweater, and you’re not only prepared for whatever comes at you, but you’ve also got juuuuuuust enough pizazz.
