what's trending now gingham styled by peexo
Recently, gingham has been appearing left right and centre and naturally, the more I see it, the more I want to have a wardrobe filled to the brim with gingham items.

Personally, I find gingham one of the most difficult prints to style. Prints are difficult generally but for some reason I find gingham to resemble a picnic blanket more than anything else and I never know when I've gone overboard - too much can be overkill.

For my first go at playing around with the trend, I picked out black and grey pieces which compliment the print whilst still being subtle enough to not give you a headache when you catch a glimpse of your outfit in the mirror (anybody else get that when there's a whole lotta print going on?) My gingham shirt is from Glamorous, it's the perfect slouchy fit for a casual weekend but can also just as easily be tucked into a pair of jeans and worn with a harness bralet popping out for some added sexiness. As I said, I kept the rest of my look simple by wearing my go-to Farleigh jeans from ASOS, a grey coat from New Look and a bobble hat from Quiz because just when you think it's starting to get a little warmer in the UK, it goes ahead and gets really really cold, really really quickly!

Finally, my footwear of choice were a new pair of studded ankle boots from Missguided. Initially, I spotted these boots on ASOS and added them to my saved list instantly. Then, whilst browsing Missguided's website they popped out at me again and I knew it was meant to be. I read some of the reviews suggesting to size up which is exactly what I did and they fit perfectly so, if you're thinking of buying these gorgeous booties then you'd be better off sizing up! As tends to be the case with any new purchase I make, I couldn't wait to give these their first outing; I was nervous they wouldn't suit the outfit because they're not plain and gingham is such a loud print on its own, I was sort of scared to wear anything that wasn't plain and simple. Having said this, I learnt that these are definitely the perfect pair of boots, they're still monochrome which means they work with just about anything. I had doubts about whether these would look too much like going out boots when they arrived but actually, they're perfectly suited for the day time too; I've only ever worn them during the day and don't think they're over the top at all.

    1. I'm around 5"11, I usually get the Farleigh's in the 30 length so they are quite cropped on me but work really well with ankle boots! X
