Gingham is a trend that has popped up all over the S/S 2015 runway! From Oscar De La Renta, Michael Kors , Diane Von Furstenberg & Altuzarra all made it the main theme of their collections. The fabric that once was reserved for 4th of July summer picnics is now all the rage from the runway catwalk to the city streets.

Brigitte Bardot famously wore a pink gingham dress when she got married to actor Jacques Charrier in the summer of 1959. This started a trend which caused a shortage of this fabric in France. Before Brigitte, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz made the style pattern iconic. Gingham dresses rendered in sheer or with striking slits turned the heat up a notch on the runways at Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg, while casual separates in unexpected tones felt more playful than played out at Karen Walker .

The runway trend can be intimidating but if worn with flattering style, it could be such a hit! I personally like to wear a monochromatic head to toe look. Women with a small frame can pull this look off.  If you are reluctant about the trend, the easiest way to capture the look is by wearing a button down shirt. A button down look  can enhance many different body shapes. Another way to wear this trend is a shirt dress .  A shirt dress can be flattering as well as forgiving. If you are not comfortable wearing a garment, opt for some accessories that capture the classic vichy print. A pair of cat eye sunglasses or sexy sandals are a good alternative. Here are some  affordable pieces to capture the classic trend without breaking the bank!
