Going Gaga For Gingham: The Print of the Season

by Kéla Walker

The gingham print is everywhere now. It’s like the new plaid, but more subtle. Many tend to think of picnic tables and blanket when they think of the print but trust me when I tell you that you won’t want to lay out on the new crop of gingham print piece hitting the market.  I’m loving the evolution of the classic print in ladylike silhouettes and pieces that will have you going gaga over gingham.

It’s easy to see why everyone is going gaga over the gingham print. It looks great on just about everyone and is one of those prints that can be worn throughout the year.  It’s seasonless and timeless.  I recently wore the print to cover a red carpet event and got more than a few compliments.

Gingham is the natural progression after seasons of plaid dominating the scene.  For those asking what’s the difference between the two here are a couple of point  to help you differentiate between the two prints.

  • Gingham is always is white plus another color
  • Plaid can be any combination of colors
  • The lines in gingham have the same width
  • The lines in plaid have different widths

I’m really into the timeless appeal of this classic print. It’s great for the office, after hours an event the weekend with some of the pieces below.

 How great are these winter gingham pieces?

More than black and white, gingham also comes in color combos like pink and white or blue and white
