I hate to say it but I’m just going to: Checks or rather gingham as it’s being called is huge.
Like ruffles, the Dorothy Wizard of Oz connotations are gone. These really are for women. My fave pieces are three: a ruffled gingham skirt (yes I know that’s two trends in one), a gingham trench coat (a fresher take than the sea of beige) and a blouse like the above photo which looks so good with a black knit.
Any of the below would slide easily in with anything black, with jeans plus simple heels. Gingham also pairs with pink, yellow, white and reds.
Let me know if you check out on anything here (pun intended)
