Trend Alert: Gingham

Gingham is all grown up! You don't have to feel like Lolita in today's gingham offerings...unless you want to (wink). Every gal should have at least one gingham item for a super summery day. It may rival chambray as a lightweight, classic fabric but it's got the colorful angle. Whether it's a picnic in the park, wine tasting with friends or a romantic dinner out, gingham deserves to be there - it has stood the test of time.

Plenty by Tracy Reese Surplice Silk Blend Dress, $320.

A couple more,

Tommy Hilfiger "Krysta" Wedge, $80.

Shoshanna black and white embroidered gingham blouse, on sale for $150 (originally $250).

I love gingham, but it's better applied to a simple, classic style like a basic button-down shirt.I just got an AWESOME pink gingham headband at J Crew! The shoe is the only thing here that pleases me , but only to look at because I fear broken ankles.Seriously. Look at that wedge.

Shoes are cute, but the other two are pretty bad, imo. Esp the dress. Awful.

I'm not liking the dress. Instead of wearing it for a picnic in the park... it looks like the table spread you'd use FOR a picnic in the park. :)
