CHECK MATE

Gingham is a great print option for kids and this pretty Fifties-style tea dress is made from sustainable cotton so will keep your little one cool too

Gingham is enjoying its moment in the spotlight this season. Previously reserved for tablecloths and picnic blankets, the classic check pattern has been reinvented by designers, in easy, breezy silhouettes and fabrics. This pretty girls’ tea dress, with its flared skirt, bow at the back and crossover straps, looks great with sandals and a cardi on cool days. The design might be reminiscent of those from the Fifties but this frock is thoroughly modern – made from 100 per cent sustainable cotton, it can be thrown in the machine after a long day of fun.
