On Monday I told you how much I love my new gingham bell sleeve top from Loft. Gingham always catches my eye and all the fun details on this top made it hard to resist. Today I’m showing you all the ways I plan to wear my new gingham top. Maybe you’ll be inspired to try a few of these looks out yourself!
A few of these looks I can wear right away and a few I’ll save for when it cools off. Since there isn’t a money tree growing in my backyard I try to shop for pieces I can wear for more than one season. The only exception would be pieces I find on super sale.
Let’s start with warm weather looks with this top. I’d also like to add that most days are way too warm to wear a long sleeve top but since this one has split sleeves it’s got built in ventilation! Speaking of ventilation I needed it the day we took these photos, it was raining and so humid! Please excuse the puddles and the gray skies.
Black and white gingham works well with all the basics like white, black,olive,and denim.
But I LOVE it with bright colors too! My magenta flame pants pair so well with black and white. Of course red works too and so does bright blue!
Even though it doesn’t feel like it now, the weather will cool off here in Florida. When it does I’ll plan to add my leopard scarf (similar only $12). Pairing gingham with leopard was probably my first foray into the world of pattern mixing. If you haven’t yet tried it, go for it! Grab yourself a leopard scarf and throw it on with a gingham top.
While I love my new gingham top you can re-create any of these looks with a button up gingham shirt. I’ll link some options below for you.
I hope today’s post has inspired you to try something new, maybe you’re ready to take gingham for a spin. You can get more inspiration by checking out the blogs I link up with my clicking on the upper right hand corner of this page.
