The gingham pattern is synonymous with chic outfits…
A pattern that reminds you that the sun is shining again i.e. the perfect bikini weather.
I do agree that this check trend rules the Summers without a doubt – as was evident in last years Spring Summer trend predictions on the Runway, you need not wait for the scorching heat of the sun to start wearing it!
How do you ask? Outerwear is the key here!
Transitional weather (Winter to Spring) can get extremely tricky. You’re constantly trying to predict what the weather is going to be like, and honestly, nobody likes being caught off guard.
To that I say, BE PREPARED!
Growing up we memorized the saying ‘Prevention is better than cure.’ It’s time you actually started implementing this mantra in your life – and fashion alike! 😉
Before diving into more details, shop my look below. I got the brami from LF stores, but it isn’t available now, so I’ve linked a similar product below.

Step 1: Bring on the Brami
Honestly, I have been loving brami’s and I’ve been wearing them on repeat. One of the reasons I love them so much is that wearing it as my first layer, I can wear a coat or jacket to cover it up. This keeps me from burning up in L.A.’s heat, while also letting me wear outerwear that I absolutely adore.
Essentially as a fashion item, I’d love for each one of you girls to experiment with it to find the brami that best suits you and also flows along with your personality effortlessly.
But for those of you who aren’t’ comfortable with showing off your midriff, you can opt for these camis instead.
Step 2: Pick the Pants
If your overall look is understated, go bold and pick statement pants. I’ve picked red pants from Who What Wear’s Target Collection that are striking!
Red is an impeccable color to pair with black, they are a match made in heaven. When you know a color combination works and has been a favorite since forever, you can trust it with your eyes closed.
Below I’ve linked affordable options + designer items, take your pick!
Step 3: Get your Gingham on
Protip: One of the most common questions asked is how to differentiate between Gingham and Plaid – Gingham checks are all square, unlike plaid.
Remember all Gingham patterns are plaid, but not all plaid patterns are Gingham.
To make things extremely easy for you I’ve searched the internet and picked the best gingham coats!
100% fabulousness guaranteed.
For those of you who scrolled through the post and reached the bottom, as a bonus I’m sharing my picks of the best gingham dresses and jumpsuits, swimsuits and tops for Spring/Summer! Enjoy 😉
Going gaga over gingham yet?
Well I sure hope so!
