Let’s face it…I love to shop. Spring and summer fashion looks always bring cheerful and happy designs. This season is no different. Look for soft pastels, blooming botanical prints, cool off-the-shoulder tops, wide leg cropped pants, and gingham prints of many colors.
There is something special about our love for gingham. It is cheerful and crisp with a timeless appeal.
How many of us remember wearing a special gingham dress in our childhood? I had a black and white gingham dress when I was 5 years old. I remember it so clearly. The dress was new and not a hand-me-down from my two older sisters! To this day, I am attracted to gingham prints and feel the nostalgia of my youth. Gingham is more than a trend…it is a classic.
Steph and I selected an off-the-shoulder blouse to illustrate our gingham fashion. I wanted the off-the-shoulder look to show mature women how fantastic they can look with exposed shoulders. We have a black and white gingham print. Remember that gingham is great in many colors like navy, red, green, yellow, and pink!
THE MILLENNIAL LOOK
Here’s Steph enjoying a break during our photo shoot. It was a warm day. Steph paired the gingham top with her skinny white jeans for a festive casual look. She accessorized with a bold black and white necklace and her signature white sunglasses. Steph is ready for any event. Tres chic, Steph!
THE BABY BOOMER LOOK
I wanted my gingham look to reflect a more playful sophistication…perfect for date night with my husband.
I paired my top with my classic black pencil skirt, black hose, and my favorite red heels. Heels add that special sensual touch to my outfit. The blouse needed a belt to define my waist. I created a belt out of Steph’s necklace and got the desired effect. For a better view of the blouse’s off-the-shoulder look on me, check out my bio on the About Us page.
