The Gingham Fad
The gingham shirt is a classic. It’s traditional color combination looks good with every pair of pants, and the repeated pattern is particularly camouflaging – which is a good thing.
The problem? Everyone has the same shirt , and wears it the same way, although it doesn’t have to be like that. Here are three ways to style this piece.
For a polished look, let the gingham be the most casual part of your outfit. Pair it with slim navy trousers and a Herringbone blazer to complement the shirt pattern without overwhelming it. The oxblood shoes and belt will look especially sharp against the deep blue of the trousers.
Make your black suit feel sleek and modern by opting for a more slim-fitted one over a wider one. Black chelsea boots are a great way to make the suit feel polished without looking too buttoned-up.
This plain weave print is traditionally preppy. Take it in an unexpected direction by wearing it with light wash jeans and a black denim jacket. Complete the look with clean white sneakers and simple sunglasses.
