You may feel a little retro stepping out in gingham — and rightfully so. This classic pattern has been sported on the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.
But this summertime-favorite print has also become thoroughly modern, turning up on style stars like Rihanna and Reese Witherspoon in recent seasons. TODAY’s own Savannah Guthrie has gotten in on the trend as well.
The check-like pattern, which reminds us of a picnic blanket, is sure to add a sweet and laid-back vibe to just about any outfit. And since it's available in all types of styles — from crop tops and high-waisted shorts, to shoes and swimsuits — it’s a cinch to make the look your own.
Lilliana Vazquez, style expert and founder of TheLVGuide.com, visited TODAY Friday with affordable options for wearing the trend.
For a sophisticated feel, look for pieces with a ladylike silhouette, like tailored blouses and blazers or hourglass-shaped dresses and pencil skirts. For a more up-to-date feel, try a larger check print or pick a color combination that goes beyond black and white.
