10 Adorable Gingham Outfit Ideas To Copy

Dorothy called: she wants her gingham back.

There's something so magically nostalgic about a gingham outfit. From primary school 'Summer uniforms', to Dorothy's pinafore in 'The Wizard of Oz', a gingham outfit is enough to make me dream back to my childhood.

But before you declare the gingham outfit a silly, childish farce and hit that 'x' on your tip right hand corner of your screen, I'll stop you in your tracks!

This seasons gingham trend is sexy and cute in equal part. Think Dorothy grown up and shopping in the Hollywood Hills, retro shapes and cheeky flashes of skin that would make the original 1950's-gingham-donning-housewife blush and cover her mouth.

By the end of this post, you will be craving a gingham look smack bang in the centre of your wardrobe!

Don't believe me?

Here's 10 adorable gingham outfit ideas to copy...

This stunning conglomeration of gingham and pin stripes gives me cartoon heart eyes springing from the sockets. 

The folds and shapes are practically a work`of art.

If you want to style a gingham look with multiple prints, opt for those in the same hue to keep it looking chic and put together.

Gingham: check. Ruffles: double check.

Pop on an adorable hat and you're ready to hit the beach, the bar and everywhere in-between.

A few seasons ago I had a sartorial obsession with co-ords. This picture alone makes me want to re-light my love for the two piece and go all-out gingham.

The basket bag and sneakers make it as effortless as breathing.

You really thought that you could get through this whole piece without seeing my old mug!


Although I'm not exactly adorable, I just wanted to waffle on about how much I've worn this gingham wrap blouse! It puts the v in versatile.

This gingham outfit goes out to all my Aussie ladies in Sydney and Melbourne freezing their butts off!

Cover up the right way with gingham pants and pop on a classic leather jacket to shield from the cold.

Gucci and gingham go together like Bert and Ernie!

If Gucci is further off your radar than Zac Efron, a slogan or plain white tee will make an equally beautiful gingham outfit.

Side note: this girl is like Jessica Alba as a model!

If you want a cute and girly look for frolicking the streets of Florence, cafe-hopping in LA, or tanning in the tropics, look no further than a classic blue and white dress.

This is one trend to go all out girly girl on, so opt for pieces with bows, ruffles and the works!

Orange prints and gingham are about as retro as you can get, and this gingham look can take you from day to night seamlessly.

Please note: an adorable gingham look does not include complimentary adorable pooch,

A plain black tee and gingham pants make for something quirky and cute.
