Gingham is everywhere this season, and here at HDYF we think for good reason—it's perfectly posh for work, flirty for date night, and just un-fussy enough for running errands. For this week's Friday Five we've decided to go all in on this classic, yet often misunderstood, print because we love it and we think you should, too. We believe gingham can be chic, flattering, and even downright sexy, if you know how to wear it. Forget Dorothy, forget picnic tablecloths, forget farmgirl costumes. Instead check out our 5 picks in the slideshow below, along with our how-to-wear-it tips, and let us prove to you why gingham is a wearable and versatile option for all women.
