Trends come and go, but some stay for a while, making them classics. When it comes to trends that define spring and summer, florals and gingham have stood the test of time. Speaking of the latter, many people often think of gingham as an upgrade to traditional checks, but let’s tell you it’s different. What distinguishes Gingham from checks is that it isn’t a print; it is a lightweight material that was originally covered with stripes but has evolved into the playful checkered pattern that we see today.
Diving deeper into the trend, designers are highlighting this as a season favourite in their collections. And it’s only right to stock up on all the gorgeous gingham pieces. From Tory Burch to Kate Spade and more, here is Luxebook’s edit of delightful gingham fashion essentials to wear on repeat this spring/summer.

Easy, breezy and chic, this co-ord set by Twinkle Hanspal is just the pick you need for a casual lunch or a day touring the city. Pair it with heels for a semi-formal look, and if you’re going to be on the move then white sneakers will never leave you disappointed.
Romantic yet laidback, LoveShackFancy’s gingham maxi dress is interspersed with florals making it an ideal addition to your summer wardrobe. The delicate crochet trims along the tiered hem and cutout bodice give it a feminine appeal.
Who said gingham always has to be formal? On days when you wish to channel your inner sporty-chic, Jacquemus’s Tuba cropped gingham jersey turtleneck top will see you through the day. Slip it on with your favourite pair of joggers and get heads turning as you walk through the city.
A Formal Affair
A dash of gingham can instantly add a formal touch to your ensemble. So, if you’re looking to spruce up your workwear attire, we suggest adding this Kate Spade elbow-length puff sleeves top. The classic button-down shirt never fails to impress.
Seamlessly bringing together Indian sensibilities and western silhouettes, IKAI’s dress can be worn for every mood. Pair it with culottes for an Indian look or wear it as a dress on its own.
The day dress
If day dresses had a prototype, Peony’s After Swim would be topping the charts. A dress that you can wear on repeat, the lightweight, breathable fabric makes this the one you will reach for all through summer. The earthy colours further add beauty to the piece.
If you feel adding gingham to clothing is very mainstream, stand out from the crowd as you pick a gingham bag. This one by Tory Burch is a versatile pick that will pair seamlessly with all your wardrobe essentials, courtesy the colours!
Peony’s ‘After Swim’ maxi dress is consciously made from a lightweight blend of certified organic cotton and ECOVERO™ viscose. It’s patterned with sweet gingham checks and has a cutout waist detailed with slim ties. Wear yours over the matching bikini when heading from the pool to lunch.
