J.Crew Black and White Gingham Three Ways

Gingham is one of my favorite fabrics and this beautiful black and white checked gingham has simply exploded this season! I l love to keep things colorful, so I was having a bit of dilemma when it came to these beautiful options. I ultimately realized that pink pops even better against black or white, so by adding in these major color accents, I felt like it was still very me.

I decided to show you three different b+w gingham outfits to show how to wear this huge trend!


Gingham Midi Skirt


First up is this fabulous J.Crew long midi skirt (Which on me turns into almost a maxi). I added a black bow tank (also from J.Crew), my lovely pink Kate Spade Izzie Bow Heels, and a pink purse from Free People. I also added a bright pink fascinator to complete the look.




This is another beautiful Chicago wall! The city is just a gold mine if fabulous places to shoot, and I was so grateful to have such a perfect setting for this post! The pink backdrop was exactly what I needed with this particular outfit. (As a quick BTS, it was literally about 20 degrees outside, the wind kicked up a LOT – which somehow worked perfectly for photos. Also the nearest place to change was a solid 4-5 blocks away. We didn’t have a car with us, so instead of the three looks I had planned to shoot here, we were only able to get two in.




I really, love this skirt. The ruffles are so pretty, and I love the way it moves. I was a bit at a loss for what top to wear it with, because it needed something with a little bit of oomph. Fortunately, I remembered I had this bow top and voila! The perfect pairing! The purse is very cool! It’s literally $24, and was the perfect mid size bag. I’m usually either a gigantic purse or tiny clutch person, so this was exactly the ticket for the right price.














Gingham Sweater


I’m a sucker for a good cardigan. This one was so unique, I immediately snatched it up. Interestingly online, they showed it with with half the front tucked in and half untucked. I tried it, but not sure how I feel about it. I added this pretty pink skirt from Ann Taylor, and my silver Loeffler heels. The pink heels would have been a bit much with the pink skirt.


















Gingham Dress

Always one for a drop waist ruffle skirt, I also picked up this J.Crew Factory dress right away. It’s definitely going to be a great summer dress. Light, airy, and a lot of fun! The weekend after Chicago, Nate and I headed up to NYC for an event. The weather was perfection, so I decided to wear this dress out. This is definitely going to be a staple in my summer wardrobe!
