In the world of prints, gingham evokes some pretty heavy love and hate. Generally speaking, we either love the country inspiration of it or loathe it for the same reason. In a season where prints are everything, gingham has appeared in force for spring and summer. Oddly enough, many of us who count ourselves in the “loathe” category are warming up to gingham just a bit. In novel colors, varying scale and on very updated clothing designs, the colorful check looks fresh and a little upscale rather than down-on-the-farm. Check out the styles featured below. You may find yourself actually smitten with gingham.
