Pawing through countless #Insta feeds and front row snaps of the rich and famous during NYFW has inspired plenty of notable satorial moments on the side walk. With the fashion pack out in full force, New York Fashion Week has rolled through town leaving hundreds of runway looks and limitless street style inspiration in its wake.
One dark-horse top trend to emblazon front row fashion toters was gingham. A flurry of excited Oscar de la Renta fever surged through the fashion ranks with editors, buyers, bloggers and celebs donning monochrome matching separates and block check designs in homage of this hot-to-trot, next generation trend revamp.
Making a preppy comeback in shades of rose and baby blue, SS15 is set to invoke a romantic nostalgia of 60s style icons like Bardot and Hepburn with pretty in pink gingham car coats, sweet short and shirt co-ords, sleek silhouettes and cropped pants. Capturing the essence of next season's most anticipated trend is this structured, plaid weave raglan coat from Finders Keepers.
Getting ahead of the editorial curve for next season, monochrome gingham is a refined, structured look that can be paired with simple separates right now. Whilst we may not all have the stones to buy straight off the models from catwalk prêt à porter collections, gingham can be interpreted for the street with effortless elegance, combining wardrobe staples with interchangeable accessories to set the mood. Keeping it modern and always on trend, shopping for this spring favourite means investing in signature user-friendly pieces in bucolic patterns and slick block colour darks for winter.
Staying away from picnic blanket style suicide, gingham in clean lines and darker colour palettes generates a structured sophistication that subtly insinuates inherent style. Teaming the chic Finders Keepers justice coat with a pair of sexy pleather pants, suede loafers, Fendi textured leather tote, VAUGHAN glass menagerie silk shirt and topped off with a pair of flash-bulb-shy sunnies lets you look front row ready for NYC and beyond.
As a whirlwind of new trends whiz around the fashion stratosphere until Milan marks the end of this year's fashion marathon, set your sights on this season's dominant gingham goal of chequerboard patterns and colour-blocked pastels, adding an edge to this countryside chic print with strong, harsh lines and feminine sheer fabrics.
