The Great Gingham Round-Up!


Confession time: I used to hate gingham! My mother used a yellow gingham in my bedroom when I was a baby and I always disliked it, which is weird because not only do I now love gingham, I adore yellow gingham! Last year I purchased my first gingham dress (seen here) and now I kinda want a pair of gingham cropped pants. As I was looking for the aforementioned pants, I found a ton of fantabulous gingham dresses, shoes, and even a tee shirt and bathing suit. If you love gingham as much as I do you will adore the items I found- check them out:

This dress might not look like gingham, but if you click here you can see a close up of the fabric which has a gingham stripe in it. How amazing is that fabric? I have this dress in three different colorways and I love them. They are incredibly comfortable and always look good when you don’t really want to dress up but you also don’t want to run around in sweatpants.

This gingham dress is so sexy! It gives you curves in all the right places. (here)

I am loving the jacket in this suit, and I like the skirt, but not together. I would wear the jacket with a solid black pencil skirt and a casual tee shirt and I would wear the skirt with a nice white blouse and a pair of heels. (here)

I have this bathing suit in a red stripe but I think I like this one better! This would be perfect for a 4th of July pool party. (here)

I love a graphic tee shirt and this is no exception. As a matter of fact, I think I have this exact same shirt only without those adorable gingham sleeves. Now I want this version! (here)

Here are the gingham pants I have been wanting. I still haven’t purchased them because pants are a difficult fit for me and I don’t like to order them online. But aren’t they cute? (here)

Technically this vintage dress is a plaid, not a gingham, but I thought it was so cute with the loop detail at the neck and arms I just had to include it. (here)

A gingham shawl with a matching dress! Adorbs! (here)

I would wear this black gingham dress without a crinoline and without the red belt. I might wrap a pretty twill ribbon around my waist and add a pair of bright red heels instead. (here)

gingham shoes

How cute are these gingham shoes? I especially like the cutouts. (here)

Ruffles, heart pockets, halter straps! This dress has everything! (here)

gingham shirt

Ignore the styling on this gingham shirt and imagine it tied in a knot at the waist with a pair of vintage jeans and a pair of wedges. A perfect casual look for running after the kids. (here)

    I LOVE gingham! One of the many things I love about Summer is wearing my vintage gingham dresses and I always want more. I blog and pin gingham inspiration constantly! Great selection here!

    Love this post – and gingham soooo much! What could be dubbed my first ever repro piece (a classic 1950s circle poodle skirt that my mom made me for Halloween when I was six, and which I proceeded to wear nearly every day after school for the next three years) was pink and white gingham and I’ve been smitten with this cheerful pattern ever since.

    Love, love gingham! It just says vintage to me. I had my eye on a pair of black/white gingham shorts but not a good fit so still looking! I did pick up a couple of petite galvanized pails at Target that had red/white gingham ribbon as a handle…very adorable for summer decor! Love the bathing suit and the check pants…want them!

    Fabulous post!

    Adoring gingham! Bought two fitted shirts, one in black and white…truly pairs well with everything! And one mint gingham, the check is smaller, very wearable! Might I suggest the jcrew perfect shirt? The fit is very nice and fabric is wonderful!

    I too, have been on a gingham kick recently. I bought some cute gingham fabric, (with ants, lol) to make a top, and a gingham blanket at the thrift store to use on a picnic.

    I used to rent a house with a vintage knotty pine kitchen, and I made red gingham curtains to hang in it. I always thought of curtains and picnic blankets when I thought of that pattern.

    I own the black and white gingham dress with ruffles and heart pockets!!! It’s amazing, and I wore it to a dinner party on the weekend with a black petticoat, aqua shrug, red lippy and red 50’s chiffon headscarf.

    Gingham is the future!!
