Yes, you are reading this caption right lol! Wearing gingham can be tricky if not styled correctly. But not to worry! You can wear gingham effortlessly. For my look, I decided to opt for a simple straw clutch. Gingham looks extra chic when you add the right pops of color to your favorite gingham piece. For this look, I decided to add lemon print bandana from JCrew to be used as hair band. The pops of yellow with the gingham print of my dress make for a perfect spring look. To complete my look, I choose my favorite pair of lace up flats. Here are some other ideas to help you style gingham:

 Pair a gingham top with white jeans and espadrilles for a casual (but stylish) look! You can never go wrong with pink accessories!

For a fun summer look, add your favorite body suit with a gingham skirt. Add some additional pink accents for a chic look that will also keep you cool.

    You’re the furthest thing from a picnic blanket, more like the belle of the picnic!
