Today’s post is dedicated to a trend that I’ve been loving recently. I fear it’s set to replace my stripe obsession (I can’t work out if that’s a good or a bad thing!) Anyway, I thought I’d style up three gingham pieces into outfits today. I hope you like this kind of post, all items are linked if you’re interested. Let me know if there are any other trends you’d like to see a post dedicated to in the comments.
For the first outfit I thought I’d keep it pretty simple and casual, integrating the gingham in a subtle way with a simple, summer appropriate, outfit.
T-shirt – ASOS
A slightly more ‘out there’ gingham piece up next. And yup, those culottes made their way into my ASOS basket. This monochrome outfit could be styled up with a pair of heels but I plan to wear it with a pair of Vans for a casual everyday outfit.
A combination of two of my favourite trends, gingham and culottes. Culottes are so flattering on different figures and are a great alternative to trousers of dresses.
Another boho inspired piece. I picked this cute crochet top as it’s slightly cropped so would sit above the waist of the culottes and also I love the mixture of pattern and texture. This adds a bit more interest to the black and white outfit.
I’ve worn my black Old Skools to death since getting them last year and I intend to wear them until they fall apart. Not the comfiest for walking long distances but they add a cool grungy vibe to any outfit.
I opted for this Whistles chain bag for this outfit to keep the smart elements of the outfit. I love mixing trainers with a smart outfit and I think this bag ties it all together really nicely.
Finally, this Zara dress caught my eye the other day and although I’ve accepted the fact it wouldn’t suit my figure, I still wanted to style it up with an outfit.
DRESS – Zara
JACKET – ASOS
BOOTS – Newlook
So, there’s my first post in what I hope will be a regular series on my blog from now on. Whether I intend to or not I end up seeing trend pieces slip into my wardrobe so it’s fun to look around online at the pieces available. I hope you liked this post, leave a comment of any trend suggestions that I could do this post on soon.
