Tried and true as a summer BBQ, we can't do summer without a gingham check. The iconic print of picnic baskets, this playful print livens up your wardrobe and your spaces deliciously. We adore gingham's re-emmergnace into surprising wardrobe choices like one piece swimsuits and precious off the shoulder tops. How will you go gingham?
Thought to have originated in India, it was in Brittany, France that this summer staple began spreading across the globe. Gingham is one of the most versatile patterns in the design and fashion world. With over 500 years of staying power, gingham is anything but a fleeting beauty. Classically found in red-and-white or blue-and-white (think Dorothy's dress with those fab red heels), gingham glows in any color pattern. Neutrals know how to make gingham sleek and sophisticated, while colors croon a warm and happy vibe in a space.
When Bridget Bardot wore a pink-and-white gingham dress, the country of France had trouble keeping the pattern in stock. That's right, the country. Can you blame them? The world wanted to emulate Bardot's effortless, playful style and that's exactly why gingham deserves a place On the Pedestal. Summer is the perfect time to let your gingham flag fly. Shoes, bags, tops, dresses, and even bathing suits in gingham are the go-to for a summer stunner!
