Darlings, suddenly the runways are awash with high-falutin’ Ellie Maes, walking out wearing their picnic blankets like a dress. In other words, the fashion world has rediscovered gingham and the humble little print is on an upward trending journey at the moment. Lorenzo heeded the call of the runways, dove headfirst into the world of retail, and came up with his picks for the best ways to interpret the wonderful world of gingham.
Let’s get shopping, ladies. First stop, the first thing everyone thinks of when you think of gingham fashion…
Because is there anything more springtime classic than a little cotton gingham frock? The ASOS and TopShop samples are really cute and fresh, but Lo’s really feeling that Melissa McCarthy maxi number.
But if you’re not the dress type or the above selections aren’t rocking your world, perhaps you’re in the mood for something with a little more structure and coverage. Perhaps you’re just the gal who’s looking for …
GINGHAM JACKETS AND COATS:
That J Crew trench is TO DIE. Lo’s other picks: The London Fog and TopShop trenches are nothing to sneeze at either. Also, the TopShop jacket with the flared sleeves is super-cute, and the St. John Blazer is a classic.
But maybe you can’t commit to a dress or a coat. Maybe you’re a gal who needs to keep her options open a little. Maybe that makes you the lady in the marker for …
Yes, we know. Technically, bathing suits aren’t “separates.” But aren’t they cute anyway? Isn’t all of this cute; the pants, the leggings, the blouse after blouse? Lo’s faves: It surprises us to say it, but Forever21’s got some cute options. Also, the Melissa McCarthy is another cute entry. Loving the Maison Jules, Kors, and ASOS options too.
And finally, if you just don’t want to commit to any article of clothing, perhaps you’d like to gingham up some of your incidentals this season. Let’s take a trip to check out the …
Any of the Mizrahi and Timex watch options are adorable, as the MINKPINK shades and the Wello kicks. The Banana Republic pump is a classic, and the embroidered TopShop boot is super-trendy. In terms of picking favorites, Lo’s stumped. He loves them all.
How about you, kittens? Feel like getting your Ellie Mae on this season?
