3 Ways to Style Gingham This Summer

When this gingham trend hit the scene, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. Now no hard feelings toward gingham but I always got the preppy vibe from it... That or picnic table vibes. But this year so many brands have been stepping up their game and making gingham pieces more "trendy." I'm into it. I didn't realize how into it I was until I looked at my recent purchases and they all had that checkered goodness splattered all over them. So I've compiled 3 outfits featuring this gingham trend for you guys. Let me know in the comments which one was your favorite!

1. Blue Life Set

I know when I posted this outfit on Instagram, some of y'all didn't love it and that's okay because I adore it! This set is super cute, definitely a splurge but I just love the fit of all Blue Life! I wear a medium in their clothes and the medium fit perfectly in this top and shorts. Also, I'm wearing my hat that gives me major "Mary Kat and Ashley" vibes. I know I say that all the time but it's true because I owned a hat very similar to this growing up from the MK&A Walmart line. #Fashion.

2. "We're Not In Kansas Anymore" Zara Set

(I laughed at the title, that's all that matters)

I purchased this set during Zara's semi-annual sale for like $30 bucks. I think it's super cute and can be worn several different ways. If you checked out my post about what I wore to Faster Horses, you may recall one of the outfits was wearing the top part of this set with denim jeans. So you don't have to go all farm girl vibes when wearing gingham! I found a yellow version on SheIn for under $30!

3. Urban Outfitters Dress

And last but not least, this gingham dress from Urban Outfitters. I love how this midi dress has the slits up the sides so it's a little more mature. I feel like sometimes gingham can be mistaken for a preppy trend but this dress is anything but preppy! I paired it with my favorite booties and favorite jewelry by Jay Nicole.
