Fashionista NOW: Chic in Gingham Fashion Inspiration

A classic retro print style to go with your most minimalist monotone look: gingham.

Gingham, interestingly, has its root traced back to the Malay word ‘genggang’, which means ‘striped’.

The dutch-colonized Malaysia then were manufacturing the fabric along with Indonesia and India. The introduction of gingham from the far East and into the West occurred in the 17th century when it was exported into Europe and then the U.S.A.

The medium-light quality of the gingham fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn makes it easy to wash, durable and simple in design. (source) For the hotter seasons of Spring and Summer, here’s a fabric style that one must be in possession of.

The history of gingham in fashion goes way back and while it floats in and out of the spotlight as trends from the past often do, the previous year had seen a renewed interest and influx of the retro print style.

With the global fashionistas’ current inclination to wearing monochrome color combo this year that signifies a more simplistic and clean approach to dressing up, gingham goes right back into the clutches of the fashion lovers.

Rightfully synchronized with the music festival season, and more sunny day out excursions, details like gingham distinguished as checkered patterns, can surely take an outfit into the realm of retro modern when styled tastefully.
