Gingham for Summer
You could say that gingham is the fabric of the summer. Its midcentury appeal is gracing everything from sundresses to bikinis. I found the perfect gingham headband in red and black to wear while traveling this summer. In fact, I used it to keep my hair in place while ghost town hunting! The hunt was somewhat successful since the photo above is taken in an old schoolhouse is Oregon. I have more pictures of it for a future post which I am so excited to share with you! But back to the gingham. To add to its versatility, I also used the headband as a hat ribbon to decorate an old straw hat for summer.
Get the gingham headband look
You can even get a gingham headband that to show off your college athletic team pride. Or go more traditional with this Anthropologie gingham headband. The store also carries this one by Dauphines of New York, which is a brand I partnered with in 2015 that makes quality headbands. Excitingly, it also comes in pink.
Best of all they’re all on sale right now.
More gingham looks to love
Here are some more gingham inspiration looks to jump start your summer. I’ve seen a lot of gingham dresses in an off-the-shoulder silhouette, another trend of the season. If you’re wondering how to wear a gingham headband, gingham pairs with florals and solid colors (especially white).
Will you be wearing gingham this summer or saving it for your picnic tablecloth?
