Weekly Wish List | Going Gaga for Gingham

Gingham Skirt New Look


Utility jacket by Whistles | Eyeshadow palette by Dior | Jersey jumpsuit by Monsoon | Tassel earrings by Gorjana | Bird clutch bag by Mango | Gingham skirt by New Look | Yellow camisole by Topshop Unique | Suede mules by Castañer | Off-the-shoulder top by Joules


Be honest, how many gingham pieces have you bought so far this season? Gingham is the ‘It’ print for spring/summer 2017, and it can be found on everything from trench coats to bikinis right now. I’ve yet to indulge heavily in the trend, but I’m struggling to resist New Look’s gingham skirt. Those feminine frills are fabulous!

The midi skirt would look great paired with utilitarian pieces – like Whistles’ boxy jacket – as extreme contrasts always work well when it comes to fashion. Do you agree?

This week I also have my eye on Mango’s bird embroidered clutch bag (sooo much fun), Joules’ pretty off-the-shoulder top and Topshop Unique’s vivid camisole. The latter is one of those “sad bad it’s good” designs. It’s kind of naff in principle, but at the same time that’s what makes it so covetable. Pair with classic Levi’s and your highest heels for a super-cool evening look!

Which style buys are topping your wish list this week? And have you added a gingham skirt to your spring/summer wardrobe yet?
