True Classics Never Really Fade: Gingham Print

There is just something “feel good” about the checkered print. Maybe it reminds us of our grandmother’s red and white checkered tablecloth, or takes us back to some of Barbie’s first dresses. The classic pattern called “gingham” is simplicity at its best. Most people know the print when they see it, but the name isn't always top of mind- that is until now.

Gingham print has been a staple fabric not only in America, but around the world; it’s that feel-good fabric that people just gravitate towards. Back in the 20s and 30s it was common to see gingham dresses or tops tied up with skirts, into the 30s and 40s you may remember models sporting gingham bathing suits, and into the 50s came dresses just like Dorothy’s from The Wizard of Oz. Into the 60s gingham was seen on many young men’s button down short sleeved shirts, and into the 70s gingham was seen on the pockets of flared jeans. There is true history to this print and it hasn't gone away. Gingham print blouses are hot for spring 2013- it is a classic go-to that can be worn in so many different ways...and I am obsessed!
