Via We Heart It
I have a new obsession: gingham. Really, I shouldn’t be surprised I love this retro vintage print – I am, at heart, a classic All-American preppy kind of girl. Last week at J.Crew, I bought my first piece of gingham for my closet – hot pink! And now, I can’t get enough. I love the classic navy blue check as well – its so perfectly prep. Layered under a v-neck sweater just adds to the preppiness. Pairing it with unexpected elements and details, like sequins or a getting the pattern in a bright color, can make it more modern and fun, as well as give it a more retro-glam feel.
Isn’t that teal gingham dress with the camel Celine bag and gold jewelry, fabulous? It reminds me of Betty Draper on Mad Men! I think its such a great print for summer – maybe because it evokes the idea of picnics, but with all the bright fun colors its coming in now, its even more summery. Summery, ladylike, a little retro, classic Americana…just what I am going for with my style this summer.
Is anyone else dying over the tan and white Marc Jacobs trench coat?! Love!
