It was Brigitte Bardot who famously wore a pink gingham dress when she got married in 1959. Being the style icon that she was, the trend she started caused a shortage of gingham fabric in France. For Spring 2015, gingham is again having a major revival. Last fall, designers like Michael Kors, Joseph Altuzarra and Oscar de la Renta all sent checked looks down the runway. While the new gingham nods to vintage All-American sensibility, the new fashion-forward version of the print is oversized and heavily textured.
We love the idea of incorporating gingham into your big day by wearing a gorgeous printed frock to your engagement or rehearsal party a la Madame Bardot, by having your groom wear it in his tie or jacket lining, or by using gingham in a table setting for a lighthearted accent at an outdoor summer wedding. Are you as check obsessed as we are?
