Girly Gingham

I got a question on my Tumblr asking how I wear gingham so I thought that would be a fun post to do because I l-o-v-e anything gingham!


Gingham by summerwind41490
I love gingham oxfords, especially Ralph Lauren ones. I have several from the boys section in a size 12 and they fit just fine with the sleeves rolled up a bit, but I also have some womens versions too. My favorite pairing with a gingham oxford is white chino shorts. I have 3 pairs, 2 pairs are from J. Crew (just different lengths) and one pair is from Old Navy (surprisingly they have a great selection of inexpensive chino shorts). If I'm going for a very laid back, casual look. I'll usually leave the oxford untucked, throw my hair up in a pony tail, and add some Jack Rogers. However, if I am looking to spruce up the look, I tuck my shirt in, add a silk tie belt or grosgrain belt, some pearls and a fun watch along with Jack Rogers and maybe even a headband or hair bow to complete the look. 

If you're not ready to try out the entire gingham look, get into it slowly by pairing a neutral outfit with something as simple as a gingham headband. Another great way to incorporate gingham is to get a Bermuda bag with gingham options! I have a great one from J. Crew and I use it all of the time! I just love it.

How do you wear your gingham and what are your favorite gingham pieces? Have a fabulous day!
