In Gingham We Trust

If there's one trend that I fully embraced last year, it'd have to be the off-shoulder. See this post. (Here and here too *wink*) To say that I'm happy that the trend is still going strong this year is an understatement. I'm waiting for the style deities to proclaim it as an "evergreen" piece.

Speaking of evergreens, in today's post I am going to feature this print that has stood the test of time and is currently being declared as the "It-print" this summer - the gingham. A two-color combo (the other one being white) pattern that is mostly known for its Dorothy association and uhmm it's place in the picnic should not stop you from wearing it to work for fear of being teased. But did you know that it was once worn by French bombshell Brigitte Bardot in one of her weddings and caused total shortage of the print in France right after? So if it can be worn to a matrimony, then yes you can definitely bring it to the workplace. Rigggghhtttt. Lol.

Seriously. If paired with the right pieces such as white buttondowns and midi skirts, this geometric pattern lends itself very well to the boardroom too. Wanna know how? Then check out how I styled them below. :)
