Recently gingham has become extremely popular! Why is this? And what is gingham?!
Gingham is usually always going to be found as a medium weight fabric that is plainly woven. The best way of explaining what it looks like is like checks, contrasting checks – for example, black and white, red and white, yellow and white. Anything that makes it pop, and stand out!
I particularly love how it just fits perfectly into spring – especially with those colours. Kind of reminds you of a picnic!
Every high-street store you can think of has this trend in various different styles and colours. To name a few – Topshop, Urban Outfitters, Zara… you get the idea.

I mean you can easily style up a double gingham look, put possibly keep it to having the same colours – thats just what I’d suggest.
However! You definitely can style your gingham piece with relatively any colour! This must be why we all love it so much! For example you could put the black and white gingham trousers from Topshop with perhaps a bright red/yellow/green bralette & have a large over sized denim jacket, to either wear off the shoulders or just regularly. Then just add some fur gucci slippers (not like I can afford that lol) and some heavy bling and you’re ready to go. It can really just go from something so simple to make it look like so much effort and creativity went into it just by knowing what goes along with it.
Some images of myself putting a bright colour with B&W gingham –
So the question is, did you really think red and yellow could really be styled together? The truth is a lot of people do hear that and go – no way! However, I take it you are curious to see what my opinion of the combination is – maybe thats what brought you here, or whatever the reason is, I hope I make it worth while your time!
I like to think that anything can be styled – you just need to conquer the balance of that statement piece with something that is also quite daring. For example below –
Ok, so – the yellow biker jacket definitely is what over takes the look! Think of it like a colour palette from the right image I have selected four colours.
This kind of just shows the proportions of the amount of colour I put into my outfit. I didn’t make this much effort before piecing the outfit together of course! I get it’s something that becomes natural to me. However, if this is something you struggle with – maybe not sure if the colours go together, you are starting to learn but still a bit unsure, or perhaps just want to go out your box a little bit!
I find that this would be a huge help to many people. You can see that all the colours do go nicely together, in my opinion anyways. It almost looks stereotypically, french in some ways!
Anyways, to conclude – yes! Yes, I do think yellow and red go together! In this form anyways. The red is just giving that little bit more of a rebellious side to the outfit but it is still appropriate to walk down the high street, any day of the week. I guess, it makes you look like you have made a lot more effort than you actually have!
I hope this way helpful for some of you’s. Be sure to keep an eye out for more of these posts, I have a few planned!
