While gingham is technically a fabric, mini checked patterns have become so synonymous with the term that a semantic change resulted. I call most mini checked patterns gingham, and feel justified in doing so.
And few things scream SUMMER louder than gingham. Now that the forecast for the foreseeable future is for temperatures in the summery 70s, my fleet of gingham dresses hang front and center in the closet.
The lightweight sundress that I am wearing here, a mainstay for French Connection, is available in dozens of colorways, prints, necklines, and sleeves. The material feels a touch beach wear, but it’s easy to care for and would be a great piece to pack for a warm weather getaway.
