It’s About Gingham for Spring 2015

It’s not over til the fat lady sings. Or skinny girl since we’re talking Fashion Week… Either way, there’s lots of time left in Fashion Month but it already seems like gingham is the print for Spring 2015. On an ordinary day it reminds me of tablecloths and kitchen towels but I think the designers have proven it can look glam and not just … practical and useful.

If you’re wondering what the difference between gingham and plaid, gingham is always one colour and white while plaid can be any number of colours. And while the lines in plaid have different widths, they’re all the same in gingham.

Michael Kors used both gingham and plaid.

But Oscar de la Renta, Diane von Furstenberg and Altazurra went for just gingham.  Oscar De La Renta

I like how Diane paired gingham shoes with the floral dresses.

Since this print is likely to be the next best thing, will you give it a try?
