Fashion Month Trend Report Part 3: Gingham A-Go-Go

Popularized by such icons as Brigitte Bardot, Jackie O and even Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, gingham has seen it's share of history in fashion.  On the Spring/Summer 2015 runways, designers used the checked pattern in a variety of chic ways.

Print-on-print is possible with the addition of a light layer, as shown at Altuzarra.

Temperley London used gingham on easy-fitting cropped pants for an effortlessly cool look.

At Michael Kors, a 50's-inspired silhouette of an off-the-shoulder top and full gingham skirt was countered beautifully with earthy leather accessories.

The trench coat was given a fresh Spring update by Oscar de la Renta with 3/4 length sleeves and large-scale gingham print. 

Diane Von Furstenberg's collection included gingham dresses to inspire anyone's inner-glamazon with checks of varying size cut on the bias.

Proving that this checked pattern can be classy, cool, boho, fresh and even sexy- Fashion Month's global designers know that this isn't your picnic blanket's gingham.  Is gingham a go for you in the coming seasons?
