Now that summer 2017 is well underway, we wanted to take a serious look at the trends that are popping up everywhere — from the streets to the feeds of our favourite fashionistas and street style stars — and one trend we couldn’t help but love is gingham. It not only gives us a feeling of nostalgia — instantly reminding us of our childhood, but it also looks flattering on all body types, especially if you’re not a fan of summer stripes. Regardless of your taste or price point, there’s a gingham piece suitable for everyone! Get on the gingham bandwagon with one (or all) of these summer picks.

1. gingham bathingsuit

The Bather

When you’re not lounging at the pool or beach, a gingham printed bathing suit can easily be worn with a pair of high-waisted pants for an on-trend look.

Shop the look: Warehouse Bardot Ruffle Gingham Swimsuit, $64, available at ASOS

2. Gingham shoes

The Shoes

A pair of gingham printed shoes is perfect for those who don’t want to fully commit to the gingham style. We can’t get enough of these ankle-wrap heeled sandals; they are far too chic to stay hidden under long pants, so make sure to wear them with a flirty summer dress or skirt.

Shop the look: Sam Edelman Odele gingham canvas sandals, $120, available at Net-a-Porter

3. Gingham Playsuit

The Playsuit

Nothing reminds us more of summer than a cheeky gingham playsuit. Perfect for a picnic or BBQ, you’ll stay cool in this playsuit with its Bardot style top and cropped ankle.

Shop the look: ASOS Off Shoulder Jumpsuit with Tie Sleeve in Gingham, $56, available at ASOS

4. Gingham top

The Top

Here you’ve got all of summer’s top trends covered with just one piece: gingham and off the shoulder. This top can be dressed up with a pair of white cropped or flared jeans and heels or down with a pair of denim cut offs and mules.

Shop the look: ASOS Cold Shoulder Tie Cami, $45, available at ASOS

5. Gingham Dress

The Dress

A curve-hugging gingham dress is definitely a wardrobe staple you’ll wear for summers to come.  This blue gingham print is perfect for those who aren’t a fan of the traditional black and white gingham style.

Shop the look: J.Crew Smocked off-the-shoulder gingham beach dress, $104.50, available at J.Crew

6. Gingham Pants

The Pants

Ditch your traditional work pants and opt for a pair of stylish gingham trousers! These cropped skinny pants have a flattering fit and can be dressed up with your favourite heels or down with a pair of flats.
