Gingham

Gingham Everywhere

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here. I occasionally scroll popular online stores to gather inspiration. ┬áIn my most recent scroll, I noticed a trend for spring that stood out. GINGHAM! Usually, when I think of gingham, I think of tablecloths and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I’ve never thought it could become a trendy pattern. I was inspired! I took a trip to the fabric store the very next day and got to work. I came up with three pieces that will fit right in with the pieces from those online retailers, at half the price.
This first piece was made from a very small black and white gingham. I thought it would work well with this bold black and white striped full maxi that I also made. I added the pleather jacket for some edge.
This top was made from a medium black and white gingham. It’s very on trend for spring with the ruffles on the sleeves. I kept it simple with black skinny trousers and a block heel sandal.
This skirt is my favorite piece. I had a vision and struggled a bit to bring ot to life. Lots of trial and error to get just the right look. I wanted an edgy look so I paired it with a band tee, denim jacket, and over the knee boots.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Tell me about some of the trends you’re looking foward to rocking this spring. Feel free to share. Until next time,
