Asos Junpsuit | Christian Louboutin Pumps
Hey Lovelies! Gingham Style has found a way into my wardrobe yet another go round. I didn’t think I would want too much of gingham in my closet to be honest, but I’m really found of how it can be paired with a color; the black and white gingham especially and it pops quite nicely. Funny story, I wasn’t too aware of what gingham even was (shame on me, I guess). However, it wasn’t until a few years ago when it was like a thing or became a thing again, that I learned what all the hype was about. After researching about gingham style, I learned that the truth about the print is that it does not mean check or checked, it actually means striped. However, the misinterpretation comes from this fabric being over five hundred years old, so I guess the meaning sorta gets lost in translation. In researching the origin of the fabric, I also found out that the way gingham can be identified nowadays is as being a contrasting-check shirt. However, this wasn’t the “OG” way, lol. True gingham was distinguished primarily for being a “dyed in the yarn” fabric, which meant the yarn is dyed before it’s woven. I was quite intrigued in learning all about this fabric especially since I’ve got a few pieces hanging out in my wardrobe. Like this Asos jumpsuit, gingham forges on as a major part of spring and summer style. Although it almost looks like apron material or something your grandmother might have worn from back in the day, the brighter side is that at least I’m picnic or bbq ready! I’m not complaining all that much though, I do love the colored checks and how they add a bold touch that you can pretty much go anywhere in. Nonetheless, at least I know a little bit about where the print I’m starting to be fond for came from!
