It’s no secret that gingham was the center of attention on everyone’s social media page last year.
It was near impossible to step into a clothing store without the checked pattern hitting you right in the face - from trousers to tops, it really was everywhere.
Truthfully this stylish trend brings back a lot of nostalgia from our days of watching Dorothy sport the pattern on The Wizard of OZ. We even styled it ourselves back in our school days with brightly coloured pinafore summer dresses; so it's no surprise that it's pretty popular in the fashion world.
This year is no exception to the fashion trend as the gingham pattern has continued to show us it’s worth. We've rounded up our favourite gingham must-haves for the summer so you can make sure your wardrobe is equipped with the latest style of the season.
