I honestly didn’t think gingham was going to be as huge as it is now. I mean, I’m hardly a fashion forecaster (unless you call checking the New In page of Zara fashion forecasting), but after indulging in a little gingham during autumn last year, I really thought the novelty of the print would wear off. Oh, how wrong I was. Gingham has returned with a vengeance, and now you cant breathe for the amount of different shapes, fits and colours it’s popping up in. Best of all, it’s popularity has peaked just in time for spring, meaning we can pull on our midi skirts or rock a bare shoulder whilst, of course, still freezing half to death (it is the UK, after all), but not feeling quite so silly whilst doing so.
I was going to write a lengthy tips post on how to manage full-time or part-time employment with blogging, but I thought, it’s Monday, I’m sleepy, I, myself, am feeling shoppy, so why not round up the best new season gingham pieces on the market so we can all indulge in a little spend? (The time management post will come, though!) These super-comfy and super-versatile New Look trousers are sadly sold out, but panic yet not, I’ve linked a tonne of alternatives so there will definitely be something that satisfies your gingham craving, and these Topshop babes are basically an exact dupe!
