Think of gingham and several images often pop into our minds: Grandmas knitting in the corner, picnics and even…table cloths. 

But the fabric is really not as grandmum-sy as you think. Toeing the line between classic and sweet, gingham is perfect for hot summery days and adds a refreshing, feminine touch to any wardrobe. It’s all about finding a modern silhouette to bring the vintage-y print to the 21st century.
