Shop The Trend: Not Your Grandma’s Gingham

Gingham is coming out of Dorothy Gale's Kansas and onto the streets. How would you style these camera-ready ginghams?
|

Checks are – as Derek Zoolander would say – so hot right now, that much is clear. If you’re stuck between a checked something and a non-checked something, you’re better off with the checked one. Balenciaga approves, Prada approves, Gucci approvesLouis Vuitton approves, the entire street style set approves – that’s all the validation you need, if you needed any to begin with. But, like my face’s propensity to bloat after ramen night while the rest of my dining party wakes up normal, not all faces checks were created equally. Gingham’s got a bit of that perky, preppy, docile rep that doesn’t always say zero-effort cool. Add a wicker basket and suddenly you’re Dorothy Gale.

But there’s nothing that the fashion crowd can’t turn cool. If they can make an Ikea tote bag covetable, gingham is nothing. You just need to pick the right ingredients. Above, the lovely Lisa Aiken wore her gingham trench coat from Sonia Rykiel with a Simon Miller bag and mismatched Celine boots. Gingham also looks surprisingly good with patent, but nothing says “I really didn’t give two hoots about what I wore today” than denim. (But, honestly, if the Dorothy Gale lewk is your thing, just do it. Don’t let us tell you what to do.)
