The Gingham Dress

From Miu Miu to the tablecloth at your local pizzeria, gingham sure does get around!

It’s super classic and almost always appropriate (did you know Brigitte Bardot got married in a gingham dress?) but if done wrong you are at risk of looking like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. Not the look I’m going for this summer

With that in mind, I try to steer away from gingham in “cutesy” shapes. No frills, no puff sleeves, no heart-shaped necklines please! It looks best when cut in sleek, sophisticated shapes like this one from Solid and Striped. What do you think? Modern or passé?
