Ever since gingham has made its resurgence into the fashion community, I can’t get enough. I literally want to look like I dressed up as a picnic blanket at all times. No shame in the game. But what IS IT about gingham that makes it so irresistible? Hear my theories below.
1. It Embodies the Leisure Life We All Desire
Call me crazy, but I feel like one of the biggest reasons we all love gingham is because it embodies the feeling and joy that comes with leisure. We’re all walking around with these checks on us, serving as a reminder that we must find joy in the little things, like picnics. ;) THINK ABOUT IT - picnics embody literally everything I want out of life - good food, great friends, instagram-worthy moments…ya know, doesn’t everyone think that way?
2. It’s Totes Classic
One thing I remember most about my Nana is her impeccable style. And what was she always wearing? Gingham. One of the outfits I remember her wearing was a pair of gingham cropped trousers and a white sweater, and I thought, I want to dress like that when I grow up. And here we are - gingham blouse and black skirt. I think she’d be proud.
3. It Goes with Literally Everything
Okay, maybe not literally everything but it goes with a lot. Since buying this MLM Label Gingham Top, I’ve worn it with black denim, underneath a denim overalls dress, with white shorts, the list goes on. I’ve been thinking of getting a cute gingham accessory like this bag, because then I can wear gingham all the time.
