It’s a fashion look that has been in and out of fashion over the years, but it’s coming back. Gingham.
The light-weight plain woven checked cotton cloth is often used as a test fabric for designs because it is so cheap. So it is great news to those who like to sew when it is back on trend.
Mods loved it in the 60’s, Brigitte Bardot even wore it for her wedding, and it’s a staple for Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, and Mary Anne in Gilligan’s Island.
Gingham has been making a show on the catwalks in recent times.
Fashion bloggers are embracing the looks.
It’s also been a look used by celebs too, and even the royals.
It’s just as popular with men too.
It’s not just the outfit. You can go for the look in accessories too.
It’s been used in everything from nightwear, to underwear, to swimwear to formal wear and more.
Do you remember any of these looks?
