Sunday Style - Gingham

In this edition of Sunday Style with the JET Team we will look at a very versatile pattern for spring and summer - gingham!

When I think of "The Wizard of Oz", I don’t just picture the creepy flying monkeys of my nightmares, but also Dorothy’s iconic light blue gingham dress. Because of this association, gingham outfits can seem a little too costumey or young for me. However, I’ve searched through Etsy and found some very wearable outfits that feature gingham and won’t have you worrying about the flying monkeys kidnapping you!

Gingham is a ideal for a tomboy look. A camp shirt tied at the waist in a gingham color, paired with a rolled up pair of boyfriend jeans, is a great weekend look. Add a pair of canvas sneakers and some simple handmade jewelry pieces and you are ready to walk the trail at the lake or hang out at your bestie’s barbeque party. It’s easy living wear!

This outfit starts with a sleeveless top (1) from theethicalpetal and vintage Levis (2) from PastReferenceUS. Add a cute double wrap bracelet (3) from malves1009 and an industrial bike chain pendant (4) from WanderingJeweler.



If you like to fidget with your rings, you will love this set of stack rings (5) from LoveStoneArts with a spinner ring. To keep you on your feet, treat them well in a pair of canvas shoes. How about a pair with a cute little dog (6) handpainted on them by ByGThatsMe? Adorable! Add a big red gingham tote (7) by marketbags to stow all your stuff for a busy day.



Gingham can be seen as the sweet version of plaid, but add some lace to it, and it seems very modern. This amazing open back dress (8) of black gingham and lace from chrystalshop is a great place to start. I decided to add peridot jewelry because I was feeling the spring green color. This accent color comes in the form of shoulder duster earrings (9) from EarthEnergyWeddings, SilverSmack's peridot silver bypass ring (10), and a peridot stone and druzy necklace (11) from JemsbyJBandCompany.

Also add the shade of green with a cute clutch (12) from aylla. Finish the outfit with 2 inch patent leather wedges with gingham bows (13) from QuieroJune. Add a little of BonefeathersPeridot natural perfume (14) to your pulse points for a great evening out!

See you next week!
