Trend Alert | Classic Prints: Gingham & Stripes

To my dearest:

I am an avid lover or solid colors, but I must admit prints are super fun and immediately changes up your outfit! Today, I want to share two very classic prints: stripes and gingham. I must say, they’ve been a hot trend and hit every single year, at every single season! And it’s no questioning why! But, I feel like they come around most often during Spring. In my spare time, I flip through multiple fashion magazines and lately, I’ve been eyeing these two prints a lot and I thought I might share!

These prints are easy to style and to dress up or down. I styled two similar styles, with the different prints to show the effect of these two prints!

I have a striped off the shoulder shirt paired with a pair of high waist denim shorts and a pair of sandals. This top boasts the stripes print, off the shoulder look, statement sleeves, and beautiful detailing of the front bow. All of which, are definitely current trending styles! I also used the clutch to add a pop of red to spice everything up! Cheers to the red, white, and blue color scheme!

With the gingham print, I picked something very similar to the striped outfit. I used the same pair of high waist denim shorts and for comparison purposes, both tops are blue in color, but just switched things up a tiny bit. The gingham top boasts the classic print, off the shoulder look, and statement sleeves. Sound familiar? Only difference — this is a short sleeve top! It’s essentially the same style as the other one! With this outfit, I wanted a slightly different feel to it, so I used a contrasting camel brown color for the shoes and bag.

Essentially, these two outfits are very similar, but the little details bring it a world’s difference! I love how you can play with styling with these two very classic and trendy prints! How about you? Do you love these prints? How would you style them? Write back and let me know!

    Love these tops! I don’t think I could ever pull them off like you do. The bow one is my favorite 😊

    I really love your take on gingham – they are both such lovely outfits and they are both very different but both have a fabulous pattern! I think they are perfect for summer!

    I am in love with the gingham top!!! While they are both pretty I just don’t look right in bows…. it’s clearly me not the fabulous shirt. 🙂

    I love the striped off the shoulder shirt. Especially the bow detail

  14. May 26, 2017 / 3:38 AM

    Ohh I love those blouses. Definitely perfect for our outfit of the days. I hope I can get these gourgeous designs!

    I am loving this trend for the season. Off shoulder and striped or that gingham top, you definitely cannot go wrong with any. I like how you styled both as well.

  16. May 26, 2017 / 4:09 AM

    Love the look, the vichy style it’s so adorable 🙂

    Such a cute outfit and I’m loving tops like this recently too and love they are in trend. I just bought a top like this today and can’t wait to wear it.

  22. May 26, 2017 / 1:25 PM

    Love your style, colors, and photos.. They indeed look gorgeous and love your taste

  23. May 26, 2017 / 2:26 PM

    I do like both but I think the gingham looks better on you. You are absolutely stunning. But then again you always are. 🙂

    Both of those tops are so on trend. I love the gingham one, that’s the sort of thing I’d wear. Thanks for a great post. Another excuse for me to go shopping!

  25. May 26, 2017 / 4:42 PM

    Looks so fresh and comfy! I would totally wear that! Plus you look exactly like my best friend! I’m really shocked.. I just sent her your blog so she can see the similarity! lol! 😀

  26. May 26, 2017 / 9:09 PM

    You are right – these two are classics. While gingham is such a big thing now, it has always been around like stripes have!

    These look awesome on you! I love the stripes 🙂

  28. May 27, 2017 / 10:54 AM

    Love the looks, too fabulous 🙂

  29. May 27, 2017 / 11:14 AM

    I love both outfits but I like the more subtle gingham print in the first outfit with the flared cuffs and cuffed flare sleeves the most so cute. I like the sound of Venndy as well I just checked them out x

  30. May 27, 2017 / 7:03 PM

    I love your outfits. The prints do you nice. I am a solid person, but would look more into prints since they look so nice on you.

  31. May 28, 2017 / 7:10 AM

    Stripes are great for summer! I love your outfits too they really suite you

  32. May 28, 2017 / 10:16 AM

    The tops look so good on you! It matched to your skin. I like them too but I wonder if they’ll be matched for me but maybe just as gifts.

  33. May 28, 2017 / 3:33 PM

    I can’t decide which look I like more! Both of them are great but I really like the gingham 🙂
