How to Wear Last Year’s Gingham Pieces Now That Summer’s Here
Last summer, gingham captured everyone’s hearts, as you couldn’t go on Instagram without seeing the tablecloth-check print. Checked off-the-shoulder tops, cropped trousers and strappy tops became the unofficial Instagram uniform. And one year later, the print remains just as popular.
Of course, gingham isn’t new, as the print loved by Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz has actually been around for centuries.

It can fit into any wardrobe.
