Fall for Gingham


Gingham is most known for its pattern during the 90s grunge era, but did you know it actually originated back in the 18th century? Pretty crazy right? Being a 90s child, I've always loved plaid and it's honestly what I live in during the Fall because of the simplistic and non-overbearing pattern. Every year, the pattern continues to dominate Fall and Winter on the runways and designers continue to modernize this particular pattern. In today's post, I'm going to share with you 3 different looks to modernize this trend with Bellenista.

Sometimes, checkered skirts can look really dated, but this one is modernized because of the white asymmetrical panel. Pair it with a simple, silk cami and trench coat to let the skirt stand out. 

The 2nd look is definitely more of a tribute to the 90s. The silk slip trend was really big last year and I think for Fall, a patterned slip like this would be really unique. Leather jackets are optional, but with such a statement piece, anything muted would work.

This year my Instagram was flooded with all things sleeves related. It seemed like every single blogger, including myself was obsessed over any sleeve detail. I really love this one in particular because of the more casual print and also the cascading sleeves - something a little different than the typical bell sleeve. I kept everything pretty neutral in order to just let the top do all the talking. 

There you go. 3 different ways to style the gingham trend. I'm curious to know which look you liked the most and whether you even like this pattern.
Also, please check out Bellenista. They have the cutest items and the price is well worth it. If you like Storets or even Asos, I'd highly recommend them because they pay a lot of attention to construction detail. None of my items had any loose threads (usually a dead giveaway of a poorly constructed garment) and everything was lined. The packaging is also beautiful. It's seriously like receiving a special gift from someone. Thanks for reading!

  1. As someone who grew up in the 90s I must admit, the second look, the rebel one, was my absolute favorite as it reminded me of my young teen years. I had no idea gingham went back to the 1800s, but it goes to show that real fashion is durable and something which will come back over and over again. Regarding the sleeves, it's really been a huge thing this year, but personally I love them. Even I had a go at them during a fashion week and was swamped by photographers being the only male doing sleeves, haha.

  2. Hi Maggie,

    I absolutely adore gingham and wear it almost every season. Needless to say, you look so stylish in these pictures! Mostly, I love the first outfit with a cute skirt by Bellenista. You paired it with that black top and hat perfectly! I’m sure gingham trend will never be out of fashion and these looks will never go out of style.

Loving all the gingham - and yes, statement sleeves have been flooding my Insta for ages now it seems. Thanks for the tip about checking out Bellenista - such cute stuff for great prices!

  4. I am absolutely into the 90's vibe. Gingham looks always chic and add a fun touch to every outfit. It has become super popular during the season.

  10. The second rebel look was definitely my favorite I love slip dresses and I love how you layered it and the pattern really makes it stand out.I haven't worn much Gingham print but maybe I should!

  11. Blame on me, that I didn't get more of gingham items this summer. I hope to see more of it during Fashion Week season. I love how you styled it, dear! My favorite look is first and second!


  12. I have to admit that my favorite look is definitely "the blogger". I love the fun sleeve trend, and the Gingham pattern really accents the dimension of the shirt. Also, the geometric skirt really complements the shape of the top. Your trench coat in the "City Girl" look is absolutely adorable, and so perfect for fall.

  13. First, I love Storets so I'm definitely going to check out Bellenista! I'm a 90's kid too so it's very nostalgic to me as well BUT I have to say that I have a hard time with finding Gingham patterns that don't look dated or too country! You did a wonderful job finding very modern pieces and I absolutely love all three! I adore the white panel in the first skirt and the dress is so cute! I love layering with a leather jacket! I've been buskin to wear mine again! The last top is just amazing and those sleeves!

  14. I am totally obsessed with gingham too- it's so perfect for Fall! I had no idea that it originated in the 18th Century, I thought it was waaaay more modern than that. That second dress with the different sized gingham prints looks incredible on you and you are rocking the gorgeous 90s vibes.

  15. I have really started to love Gingham again. When I was younger, I was a little obsessed with pastel ginghams... Ha, ha. But the darker colour and different sized print are so current. My favourite look is the last one - I love the casual cool styling here. The Largerfield bag is gorgeous too! Thanks for sharing. J. x

  16. My gingham pieces are so boring compared to yours, omg! It's one of those prints that is so simple to style and match with other things. I particularly love that off the shoulder number you're wearing. Great choice to wear it with a hat and skort!

  17. I love gingham babe!!! Love the 3 ways you style this beautiful trend and all of them look great on you. My favourite is the gingham dress and how you style it with the t-shirt very cool! Would love to get a dress like this but have not found one yet. Thanks for sharing your great style.
