BEAT THE HEAT IN A GINGHAM DRESS

August 20, 2019

Gingham: could there be a more heatwave-ready print? It's been our go-to for sticky summer days for a long time now — and luckily, Dorothy’s favorite motif is still a huge trend for SS19 (and probably will also be for 2020 — but more on that later). Although these days it’s available on everything from swimsuits to blazers, we still think a good auld fashioned dress is the best way to get checked out (lol). Let us show you what we mean...

Did anyone else’s jaws drop to the ground when they saw Jacquemus’s recent Spring/Summer 2020 show? Not only was it set in the stunning surroundings of Provence’s lavender fields, the collection on display was a mouth-watering mix of oversized tailoring, utility-inspired separates and dreamy dresses. (AKA everything our wardrobe wants and needs and wants RN). One of the highlights was this floor-skimming pink gingham beauty, styled with just one beaded statement earring. As well as being gobsmackingly gorgeous, this one makes a strong case for dresses so floaty they create a nice breeze as you walk. A seriously good look and your own personal AC system in one? Win.

Standard fashion cities like New York and Paris may be where we usually go for street style, but we also enjoy a browse through the pavement photos from other fashion weeks. Like Barcelona, for e.g., where we spotted this ludicrously good get-up. Giving us all the summer-dressing inspo we need right now, this street styler pairs her gingham frock with espadrilles, skinny shades and gold chains. The result? A heatwave-ready ensemble we’ll be rocking from work to play.

Try it on

To have a gingham moment of your own, there’s plenty of options to suit every style. This cute pink Mango number is giving us the Jacquemus feels; pair it with espadrilles, sneakers or techy sandals. And there you have it: a look that will have you navigating the oven-like bus, sunny pavements and sweaty beer-garden in style. Take that, heatwave!
