Styling Inspiration: How to Rock 2017 Summer Gingham

House of Holland summer gingham

At WGSN we predicted in our vision for S/S 17 – called Edgelands, that classic gingham checks would be making a comeback. And now for 2017 summer gingham has returned to the catwalk and to the shelves of your favourite retail stores. When it comes to styling, the catwalk offers up a huge amount of inspiration, especially the Peter Pilotto and House of Holland LFW shows, which offered up a quirky twist on the fabric.

Gingham seems to recall lazy afternoons picnicking in the park, while mismatched iterations added a quirky twist. From micro to macro, the classic gingham pattern is transformed from a twee classic to a contemporary newcomer. Sugary palettes pair well with flounces and frills.

Whether your budget is high-end or high-street, there is a gingham item for everyone. And style them up like these images below:
