Top 5 Gingham Go-Tos: Check Mate


Florals, who? Everything is coming up gingham for spring! There is something so pure and innocent about this sweet print – which makes it all the more fun to spice up. Luckily, designers have done the work for us this season. From graphic black-and-white spins to saucy silhouettes to unexpected embellishments to classic pastels, these top picks have me saying, “Check, please.”

1. Oscar de la Renta Check Pattern ScarfIf you don’t want to commit to a print, a soft cashmere scarf is the way to inject it without going all-out. On Farfetch for $550.

2. Diane von Furstenberg Kyla Wrap Sweater: Or take your DVF checks in the form of a sultry-sweet wrap sweater, a nice update on Diane’s signature dress style. On Shopbop for $348.

3. MSGM Lace-Paneled Gingham Cotton-Blend Twill Mini DressEvery girl deserves a pretty new dress in time for spring, and this guipure lace-paneled number is just feminine enough. On NET-A-PORTER for $905.

4. Oscar de la Renta Checked Wool-Blend Shorts: These shorts have been on my list since I spotted them on the Spring ’15 runway. Wear them day or night with a collared shirt, white tee, or crop top: the possibilities are endless. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,190.

5. Diane von Furstenberg 440 Micro Mini Bag: A mixed and magnified checkered print looks especially good on a supremely scaled-down mini bag. On Shopbop for $178.
