12 Gingham Pieces You’ll Love for Summer

 

 

Happy Summer friends! Well, technically, we're a few days away but we've been in full-on summer mode here in New York for a few weeks now.

When it comes to my summer wardrobe, I tend to stick to what I love: brighter colors, prints, jumpsuits, dresses; but every once in a while a trend rolls around that seems to come at the perfect time. This season, for me, it's gingham.

In the past I have always stuck to the classic black gingham print, but when I saw this OTS smocked top in-store at Express, I was totally drawn to it. I pictured it with a pair of light wash denim and white mules (my inspo for this outfit). Gingham is one of those classic prints that reminds me of warmer weather and a picnic lunch followed by sunset cocktails. Totally puts me in a summer state-of-mind!

Here are 12 pieces you'll love for your summer wardrobe...

PS - Have you heard that Express now offers extended sizing from 00-18 (XXS-XL)? Love that I can share my favorite pieces with you that now cater to a more diverse range of body types.

SWIMWEAR
There's no such thing as unflattering horizontal lines with this print! If you're wanting to switch things up from the traditional solid suit, gingham is a great print to experiment with. You know I love my retro vibes, so I'm all about the high-waisted bottom. Love this one-piece style too!

MINIDRESSES
Give me a gingham mini and a denim jacket, and I'm good to go for nearly any summer event. This pink mini gives me total Beverly Hills Hotel vibes and I love the faux wrap style on this one. My pair for all of these dresses? A great pair of white platform sneaks!

TOPS
I love a gingham top because it's incredibly easy to style. Light wash denim or white jeans, a pop of color on your feet and you're good to go. I paired my smocked pink top with these flares (which are incredibly flattering, by the way) and white slip-on mules. Also adore this sweetheart puff-sleeve style
