How to Wear Gingham

6 Real-Girl Ways to Wear Gingham, Without Looking Like a Square

If we had to choose a king and queen of Summer separates, it would be white denim and gingham-print anything. Slip into a crisp pair of skinny jeans, tie on a check button-down, then finish with embellished sandals, and you'll be fashionably fit for any Summer soiree. Not 100 percent sold? Let us break it down.

Though our love of gingham is unwavering — we credit our obsession to Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy and her timeless style — some still believe the smart pattern is solely reserved for days on the Cape, journeys to see the wizard, and barbecue table decor.

Almost ready to convert? We'll drive it home.

We've challenged our editors to fashion six personalized looks centered around the smart print. From glamour girl to urban hipster to modern pinup, we've got a style just for you. Scroll through to gather street style inspiration from a feature we like to call: oppa, gingham style!
