Stylish Gingham Outfit Ideas You Can Wear Well Into Fall

These gingham outfit ideas will have you looking stylish well into the fall months!

Gingham outfits are nothing new to the fashion scene but I have noticed that gingham has been especially popular lately. And for good reason! Gingham isn’t just for preppy dresses anymore. Now you can find gingham blazers, pants, crop tops, bodysuits, and more. You can style it up in a feminine way or add a leather jacket with some sneakers to give it a little edge.

Gingham Outfit Ideas

Blazer and Shorts Set

I have to admit I don’t own many gingham pieces and that’s probably because I’ve always looked at the print as too preppy or too southern belle for my taste. That changed when I spotted this gingham short and blazer set at Target. Yes, Target! Don’t sleep on the fashion section at Target because they have some seriously stylish and affordable pieces.

While gingham is typically worn in the summer I could see styling these separate pieces for the transition to the fall. I might even have to do a separate blog post on how to wear these pieces for the cooler months!

Gingham Dresses

I saw this Topshop dress at Nordstrom Rack and I just had to try it on! It combines my love of puff sleeves with my newfound love of gingham. Not to mention that the wrap style of the dress is extremely flattering and fits this petite 5ft girl like a glove! I wanted to keep this outfit interesting so I styled it with a pair of neon yellow heels. A discovery I made last year at Nordstrom Rack for only $12!

The next few looks are mood boards that I created based on pieces that I found on the interwebs. I don’t currently own any of these gingham pieces but I am looking to make additions to what I currently own so you may be seeing similar outfits in upcoming posts!

Gingham Outfit Idea Mood Boards

Pants + Tee + Sneakers + Leather Jacket

This effortlessly cool look was inspired by UK blogger and model Lucy Williams. I actually found this post on Bloglovin (that’s the old school blogger in me) and fell in love with the look right away. It’s actually a blog post from 2017 which goes to show how classic gingham is and how a simple chic look never goes out of style.

Gingham Top + Leather Pants

You know I’m all about mixing feminine clothes with edgier pieces. That’s why I thought that a gingham top with faux leather pants would be a great combination. I’ve also been loving faux leather everything lately so this look is also a reason to include these pants! That and this outfit is perfect for the transition from summer to fall!

    Oh yes gingham is so having a moment! I wore gingham to NYFW and got my picture snapped for a street style article on The Cut for New York magazine. You look great in the gingham dress and shorts set. I have so been wanting to get a gingham shorts set.
