The sweeter cousin of plaid, gingham is the print of spring 2015. It was popularized by style icon Brigitte Bardot and has the optimistic feeling of 50s and 60s French Riviera-meets-classic-Americana. This past September designers including Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenburg and Altuzarra sent the retro print down the runways in modern silhouettes and unexpected colors. We’ve seen the trend on the street in matching seperates, sweet shirtdresses and button-down shirts playfully tied in the front. It’s easy to wear, understatedly sexy and ultra-feminine, we’ll be wearing this print all season long.
We’ve taken a few of our favorite looks from the runway and paired them with nearly identical BurdaStyle patterns that will help you get the look – for a lot less! Just pick up your favorite gingham printed fabric and get sewing.
