Styling Gingham Shorts for Summer

It's been a while since my last outfit post and I've been so eager to step outside and take some shots with my friend Hannah*, especially as it's so warm here in the UK and I have recently had my hair coloured lighter! We found the perfect spot in my hometown of Stratford Upon Avon, a wall with red and white roses and a bright red postbox! It was meant to be!


From just the first glimpse you're probably thinking oh no not another gingham outfit from a blogger but these Boohoo gingham shorts are extra special because there are added florals and a bad ass crop top from H&M! Also wait until you hear how much the top and shorts cost together... £10! This is only my second piece of gingham in my wardrobe so far, and I'm sure I will be buying more as I have absolutely fell in love with these shorts. High waisted and super comfy, I could also style them with a white or black top. 

The gingham trend itself has hit the high street in a big way, coming in an array of styles including skirts, dresses, tops and also different colour combinations: red, blue or black with white. I have styled this gingham look more rocky than preppy, but if you wary of pulling off the gingham trend yourself just add a little bit to your outfit in the form of accessories or if your extra daring wear shorts like me.

To accessorise this gingham outfit, I had to go with the colour black as it goes with everything. The leather fringe jacket is from Matalan over a year ago and the bucket bag and wedges are from La Redoute. To finish off the gingham outfit I wore my mirrored sunglasses from Primark, also a bargain at £3. If you scroll all the way to the end of the blog post (I loved all the pictures so much, it was difficult to narrow them down!) you can see my accessories closer up.















Are you loving the gingham trend for Summer?
