Every New Season comes a new and exciting trends. For Spring Summer it
is clear to see that Gingham is the New Black. Literally every babe on
Instagram is rocking everything from gingham tops to skirts, even coats.
There is something in the print that simply makes it fashionable.

Much like the rest of the high street, there has been a gingham invasion over at Zara and Topshop. This cute top is actually from Zara. One thing I love about it, is the fact that it has a combination of two trends making it double cooler. The ruffle detailing on the sleeves caught my attention, considering ruffles are pretty hot this season. The picnic-friendly checks makes me instantly feel cheerful. Though Farai was not entirely ecstatic about the checks. He said it reminded him of the house help uniforms (This will not make sense to most of you but growing up in Zambia/Zimbabwe it was a norm to have a house help and they normally wore gingham patterned uniforms lol), which took me aback. But once on set, He warmed up to it.
Lastly, If you are like me, and you like to think ahead, I reckon you could even wear this in autumn with a long sleeved bodysuit, and that should definitely keep you warm. I digress, back to the topic at hand. This top is an instant statement maker that you can pair with just about anything.
Are you a fan of Gingham this Spring/Summer?
