Plaid of Summer
I've never really liked gingham patterns. They felt frilly or preppy... two words I wouldn't use to describe my style. But then a friend mentioned that she's always thought of gingham as the "plaid of summer" and that completely changed my perspective. I mean, I love plaid in the fall and winter. Why limit myself to just those two seasons? So here we go with my first gingham styling session. If you're like me and a bit apprehensive about the pattern, start with basic black and white. It's classic, widely available, and works with all body types. I was also able to find a gingham sundress that was made into another hot trend, tiered layers, and I love it! I hope you do, too!
Just a girl and her dress, minimally styled with sandals and sunnies.
Level up by adding a hat.
One of my favorite styling tips is to layer a tee, sweater, button down, or jacket on top. Gives any dress a whole new look!
And you can't talk about spring and summer styling without talking about straw. Hats, belts, earrings... all the rage.
