The message from the New York Fashion Week runways was loud and clear. Give your neo-grungy buffalo checks a break this spring and try out some light and feminine gingham instead. Here are three ways to do it, ripped from the spring 2015 collections.
First, Altuzarra unveiled a sexy milkmaid update. Designer Joseph Altuzarra countered the traditionally whimsical feel of gingham with figure-flattering silhouettes and strategic flashes of skin.
Then Diane von Furstenberg sent out her own Côte d’Azur-inspired collection—re-imagining the picnic print onto a sultry evening gown ideal for a French bombshell.
And then last night—bam! Oscar de la Renta gave baby pink gingham a blast of modern energy with oversize checks on a swingy cocoon coat.
