The Gingham Skirt That Simi Is Totally Crushing On Right Now
My sartorial heart has always been inclined to gingham, as my tryst with checks started early on. Call it childhood nostalgia, but I remember a time when my mother took me to our trusted local tailor where I stood in attention as she instructed him to sew the gingham fabric she’d bought into a cute dress for me. And I still fondly recall this powder blue sleeveless piece with add-on floral embroidered pocket patches. Keeping that aside, I think gingham is popular thanks to its retro flair, which instantly adds to its charm. Look up Audrey Hepburn’s off-duty style where she wears a pair of gingham pants on the sets of My Fair Lady, and then you must check out Gigi Hadid’s blissful shot for Vogue with bae Zayn Malik, where she sports a gingham high-waist bikini. See that? Timeless versatility; that’s what I’m talking about.
And most importantly, you can team up a gingham skirt with a knotted top for that yesteryear vibe or be right on trend by wearing it with an off-the-shoulder crop top. It’s a classic no matter what the season.
My love for gingham takes a fresh new route thanks to this uber-stylish midi skirt from The Label Life. With a rounded hemline and two essential pockets on the sides, this piece looks like it has been designed for all those outings where I need to be stylish and want to be comfortable. The detail that has got me going “I WANT!” is the self-tie flat band on the waist. Chic, isn’t it? So perfect for spring as well as for fall, given the length — I’ll pair it with a white body suit when it’s warm and a turtle neck for when the temperature drops. A far as playing on my weakness for the print is concerned, got to say this piece has done a pretty good job. *Clicks on add to cart right away*
