Gingham- Spring/Summer 2017

Spring/Summer 2017, Gingham took over the fashion world, from skirts to shirts to dresses, everyone and their grandma wore this fabric trend.

Styling Gingham

Hi guys! I’m back and finally wearing Gingham. When this trend was in full flux, I wanted to style it for the blog but I was tired of the ruffles skirts and wrap shirts that were making the rounds. I wanted to wear it and feel like Vanessa; minimal yet fun.

I finally figured out a way to wear Gingham that I loved, that is affordable and can be reworn in different ways. Drumroll please ; a jumpsuit!

Jumpsuits are extremely versatile and can be taken from casual to extremely sophisticated and high fashion. For this look on the blog I went for a casual, laid back, everyday look.

The jumpsuit I’m wearing came at very little cost, all it cost me was the fabric because I made it myself  ( learning how to sew was the best thing that ever happened to me) .

I took my trend styling a step further by pairing the jumpsuit with the bag of the year, a woven raffia bag and slides.

P.S

I actually have worn this trend before, you can read it here.

      Amaka, thanks so much. ‘Lush’ that gives me all kinds of butterflies. The bag was 1000 naira.

  • Double Gingham (2017 Recap) - Style by Ohaha

    […] I styled my Gingham shorts with a Gingham tie top, channeling a vacation on a sunny island somewhere. Simulating a vacation in this banana farm near my home put me in that frame of mind. The top was a diy tie top made from left over fabric from the jumpsuit I made for my Gingham post here. […]
