A Classic Pattern with a Modern Twist

Posted on


To start off Fall Break, I wanted to showcase a pattern I love. Gingham has been seen everywhere- on large sleeve blouses, dresses, and even cropped pants. I actually have a pair of black and white gingham slacks that I love to wear to work. The classic pattern is not only stylish and chic, but can easily be paired with trendier accessories and clothing pieces. Usually in black and white, this brown neutral gingham dress from the Oklahoma boutique Blush Norman of Campus Corner in Norman adds a perfect fall twist to the classic pattern.

Since the dress is so classic in it’s pattern and cut, we wanted to show off a trendier set of accessories to make the outfit a little more modern. To style that, we paired a pair of suede brown mules (also from Blush Norman) and a pair of gold pom pom earrings (those too from Blush Norman). The trick when styling a pattern like gingham is to always remember to not go overboard since it’s so loud. I think we did a pretty good job of that here. Also, all of our accessories were earth tones as well, which kept with the same color range.

The dress hit me at about mid thigh and has ¾ inch sleeves, which are perfect for these cooler days. It also has a zipper in the back and would be so cute paired with a simple neutral colored belt!

Have you been seeing gingham everywhere lately? Are you loving it or leaving it? Let me know in the comments below! We want to hear you!

As always, thank you to Blush Norman for partnering with me on this fall post and for letting me have a hand in styling the pieces. They are already getting winter items in store so be sure to check their social media channels and website out for new arrivals!
