Get picnic-ready with dreamy dresses, vintage-inspired blouses and swishy skirts to see you through summer in style
A versatile fashion mainstay, gingham is also having a serious moment this season, thanks to Molly Goddard’s, Ganni’s and MSGM’s spring/summer 2022 collections. Sweetly sophisticated with a retro feel, gingham checks have been reworked in vibrant shades and combined with puffed sleeves, smocking and supersized collars to amplify the sartorial impact.
Wondering how to style out gingham for the school run or the office? A puff-sleeved blouse will look great with tailored trousers, and equally lovely with jeans and trainers at the weekend. Look for gingham tops made from responsibly sourced cotton to help keep you cool on hot days, while textured linen fabrics offer a more relaxed look for holidays and weekends. Don’t miss our gingham beachwear for a dose of riviera chic, wherever you’re headed.
What better way to pretend you’re picnicking in Provence, not on your local park bench, than to wear a pretty gingham dress or skirt? These sunshine-ready midis, minis and midaxis (yes, that’s a thing) just scream summer, and look effortless teamed with this year’s most-wanted footwear. Whether it’s a shirred dress with ribbon-tie shoulder straps, or a puff-sleeved midi with smocked detailing, gingham dresses and skirts are a favourite that come back year after year, guaranteeing longevity. A rustic basket bag is the only accessory you’ll need.
