Hello Beautiful People,
Gingham: A classic wardrobe staple. The epitome of timeless all-American style. You’ll find it anywhere from interior design to high-end fashion. Nope, it’s not just for table clothes and aprons, my friends.
The iconic print has been a favorite among some of the most famous women in history, including Katharine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Fonda, Jackie Kennedy & Grace Kelly. In its long history prior to becoming a glamorous fashion statement among Hollywood celebrities, the fabric had a history of being used to make clothing for the working class in both Europe and the United States. Today you’ll see gingham on a new generation of Hollywood it-girls, such as Taylor Swift, Kendall Jenner, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon, & Oliva Palermo.
It has a vintage feel that brings to mind simpler times. It’s classic but really fun in the modern twists you see put on it the present day. I am a fan of keeping things classic yet fresh with a modern take on design, fabric, and cut.
If you don’t currently have any gingham in your life, I highly recommend you get some. Here are some of my picks:
