If you told me last year that I would be wearing gingham this spring, I would have told you you were crazy. When I think of gingham, the first thing that comes to mind is preppy. It just goes to show the power of fashion and photography and styling…because this season I’m in LOVE with gingham. Literally, you have to pry this top off of me, I’ve been wearing it every week!
I love how fashion can take something old and make it new again, and that’s exactly what happened with gingham. Take gingham and put it on a new bold shape (think off the shoulder, exaggerated sleeves, oversized ruffles) and you have something entirely new. If I have learned one thing about fashion, it’s never say never (good rule of thumb in life, really).
I have been living in these overalls since I bought them a few months back. They are SUPER stretchy, which I love. I’m actually wearing a 25 because they were sold out of the 26 at the time. I would prefer the 26, but with this much stretch, it works. I have mostly paired them with a tight, white, crewneck tee, which is a look I love. But HOW CUTE is this off the shoulder gingham top under the overalls? If you hear ‘gingham and overalls,’ I’m sure the first thing you think is country farmer, right? But with fitted black overalls + an OTS ruffle top, it just works. What do you think?? I love it.
I added my favorite slide sandals and oversized fringe tote. Oh, and a black choker, because black chokers with everything. I have another fun way to wear this top, so stay tuned for that post coming soon.
The overalls I am wearing come in multiple washes…I’m considering another pair. I’m wearing the Stark Black, but I love the Sulphur Black, too!
