7 Gingham Looks We Love

Gingham Is This Summer’s Go-To Staple

 

As Hong Kong heats up, we start to think about fabrics that will make us look fresh even when the weather is stifling. Available in all colours, shapes and sizes, gingham has been a strong contender for the majority of designers this season and we’re totally on board with their choice!

Whether it be from the likes of Altuzarra and Miu Miu for a playful take on coloured gingham and Sixties silhouettes, or Christopher Kane and Rosie Assoulin for classic black-and-white checks, this print has been given a modern revamp with textures and fabrics. And we expect the highest standard from the trusty high street. They did not disappoint: cold shoulder, high waisted, ruffled or midi – there is a style to suit us all!

Check out our seven favorite gingham looks…

Topshop "Madame" Embroidery Boots

Did we mention that gingham isn’t just about clothing? Well, these Topshop boots simply have it all. Embroidery? Check. Gingham? Check. Ideal heel height that won’t make us hobble home after a night out in Wan Chai? Check. We might just order them, you know, just to try on…

Available online here.

River Island Gingham Wrap Top

The chiffon fabric makes this the perfect top to wear on summer’s humid nights out. Pair it with classic black trousers and add a pop of colour by adding some brightly coloured mules (also another hot pick for the season!).

Available online here.

ASOS Jacket with Bow Cold Shoulder in Gingham Check

For the cooler evenings (let’s hope we have some!), or to liven up an all-black outfit, ASOS’ jacket is sure to be a winner. Keeping it classic gingham like Christopher Kane, the light fabric makes it essential for nights out in Central, or for keeping the sun off your shoulders on those daytime Junk boat trips.

Available online here.

Zara Gingham Trousers with Pom Poms

Pompoms are just another accent on our ever-growing summer wish list, and Zara’s trousers let us tick off two trends at once! We are happy to say that the kick flare is sticking, so this would be an investment piece, right?

Available online here.

Christopher Kane Gingham textured-leather shoulder bag at Net-A-Porter

You can’t go wrong with Christopher Kane, and this shoulder bag is no exception. The classic handbag has a detachable strap, is finished with a modern clip and can be transformed to suit any occasion. Not only is it versatile, but also comes with a coin and card purse. So really, it’s like two bags in one. Meaning two for the price of one. Sold!

Available online here.

Rosie Assoulin "Iris" Off the Shoulder Ruffled Gingham Seersucker Top at Net-A-Porter

Rosie Assoulin’s take on the gingham trend as a whole is playful and fun, which definitely shows through her “Iris” off-shoulder ruffled top. Ruffles and frills aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, so hopping on this trend is hitting all the summer must-haves.

Available online here.

Topshop Gingham Smock Dress

For the days where Hong Kong gets a little overheated (just nine months or so), the smock dress is the answer to your humid-filled prayers. Light fabrications, flowing silhouettes and stylish, Topshop has hit the nail on the head with this little number. Follow the dress over jeans trend by adding a pair of Levi’s in winter, and because you can wear it throughout the year, we feel no guilt in adding this to our basket…
