Whether you call it plaid or gingham. This print is in. If you’re like me and you’re no quite sure what to call it then you’re about to thank me.
In an effort to not sound too ignorant I researched the difference between the 2, I wouldn’t want all the fashion gurus out there to kill me, lol.
So the simplest way to distinguish the difference between the two:
- Gingham is always white plus another color. It doesn’t have lots of colors mixed in.
- On the other hand, plaid can be a mixture of many colors.
- The lines in gingham are the same size.
- Plaid has lots of different sized lines.
- Gingham is also a checkered pattern, but the checks are even-sized.
Okay so now that we’re all on the same page on what to call it, back to the topic at hand. Everywhere you look, down the streets or the runway you’re bound to see a fashionista donning something in this print.
The print is a classic. In fact, the blazer I’m wearing in this post belongs to my sister and she bought it over 5 years ago.
I love classic pieces as I’ve always emphasized on the blog and although the plaid blurs the lines between classic vs trend, the fact that it’s in the form of a classic cut blazer makes it a sure classic.
The blazer isn’t the only trend I’ve jumped on. I’m not actually meant to wear heels as I have some knee issues, but I’ll make another post on how I get around wearing heels everyday (I’ll admit I only pose in heels but don’t really wear them to work). So since I don’t wear heels much I go for kitten block heels as they’re super comfy and yet still stylish. I’m so glad they’re in at the moment and sky high stilettos have taken a back seat lol.
I hope you enjoy this look. Let me know what you think.
