Don’t stress though, we’re sharing five simple to execute styling tips for gingham. You’ll be on your way to mastering this trend in no time.

1. DRESS IT DOWN WITH DENIM – Pairing gingham back to your favorite jeans is the simplest way to add a modern edge to this otherwise playful print. We recommend a medium wash boyfriend jean with a touch of distressing.
