The Gingham Dress

Not long ago, I shared this post featuring the gingham trend. I mentioned my hesitation when it comes to this pattern and how I have a love-hate relationship with it. When writing that post, I didn’t think I would ever wear a full on gingham dress… But here we are.

I’ve said it a million times before, I’m always open minded when it comes to new trends. A lot of the times I feel a little reserved at first, but with time I grow more and more accepting of them. And that’s exactly what happened with gingham. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not on board with the big gingham print and I still think it kinda looks like a kitchen cloth.

You guys know I’m all about dresses in spring/summer time and this one just sums up everything I’m linking at the moment. My love for off the shoulder will never die I think. It’s one trend I wish it will never go away. As for the ruffles, they’re in all the right places. They give this dress a nice gypsy vibe.

The length is just perfect, even on a shortie like me! And I always love a tight waist on flowy dresses as it helps give an hourglass shape.

This gingham dress is such a perfect summer piece. It also comes in red which also looks very nice. I can imagine wearing it on my next vacation or even for a date night. Throwing a leather jacket on top to give it a little more edge and to keep me warm on chilly San Francisco nights.

    I adore this dress! I love the scale of the gingham, the length, and the ruffle details on the neckline and hem! I also love that woven bag paired with it, such a perfect summer outfit! I’m the same way with a lot of trends, it takes me a little time to open up to it and I’ll usually end up caving because I’ll see it SO much that it’ll begin to grow on me. Thanks for sharing, beautiful l, and I hope you’re having a great day so far!

    Oh Wow! I just found your blog when you commented on mine and I am so excited! I love it! I know how you feel about gingham, I feel the same. I love it but am close to sick of it. But what did I do? I bought the most adorable gingham dress last weekend. It has a cute wrap front the big tie! Swoon! Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog. I will sign up for your newsletter, I don’t see you on bloglovin? Peace!

    This dress is gorgeous on you – I’m still not sold on the whole gingham thing, it’s a tad prairie-esk for me but I like this one with the off the shoulder cut.

    That’s such a pretty dress and it looks great on you! I’m also a fan of tied waists on flowy dresses, always looks great. Scrolling through your blog and I really like it! xx
