Pinterest and Instagram are flooded with summer’s hottest pattern—gingham. Skirts, dresses, and tops are flying off the shelves in this summery print. So how did this picnic tablecloth staple print turn into a chic and feminine piece? The neutral pattern usually consisting of white and another color, can be paired with almost anything. I’ve seen gingham pieces worn with other prints, graphic tees, heels, and as a matching top and bottom. We’re used to stripes, florals, and geometric patterns, but gingham is dominating because it’s new and exciting. A lot of gingham pieces double dip and feature other hot summer trends like off the shoulder sleeves, embroidery, deconstruction, and ruffles.
Finding the perfect gingham dress, skirt, pants, romper, top, or all of the above can be tricky, but luckily Tanger Outlets has our back! This trend can be found at many retailers within Tanger Outlets and has become a key piece for my summer wardrobe.
Here are my top gingham picks and styling tips!
Pair with espadrilles and bold colorful earrings for a modern twist or with sporty sneakers and layered dainty necklaces for street style appeal. I love the thought of wearing these to brunch, quick errands, or to a laid back dinner party. Check out J. Crew Factory for jewelry, Converse for sneakers, and Saks OFF 5th for espadrilles.
Pair these tops with white denim and oversized sunglasses for a fresh and clean look or with distressed denim shorts and strappy sandals for a relaxed and hip feel. These tops are great to have on hand for those days you’re at a loss for what to wear! Head to Levi’s Outlet for your denim needs, Saks OFF 5th for strappy sandals, and Francesca’s for sunnies.
Shorts & Skirts
Pair these with a black or white crop top and sleek heels for a date night look or with sneakers and a graphic tee for an edgy flair. Either way you go you can’t go wrong with these feminine staples! You’re sure to find a basic crop top or graphic tee at Forever 21, heels at Nine West Outlet, and sneakers at Adidas.
