Gingham Shirt Dress

 

Gingham Look

I whipped out this gingham shirt dress for work the other day. [Aside: saying the word “gingham” reminds me of that guy – the Gangnam Style singer. What is he up to these days?]

The gingham look seems to be ubiquitous this summer. Although, I guess gingham never really does fade away – black (or blue/red/any other colour) checkered with white will always make a classic look. I have included a few lovely gingham looks in the sidebar.

Shirt dresses. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with shirt dresses: on one hand, the concept is so appealing – a shirt that is long enough that it can be worn alone (aka no pants/trousers needed); on the other hand, however, they tend to be annoyingly clingy. Is it just me?

Despite this relationship, I continue to keep an eye out for shirt dresses and have included my current favourites below. To address the issue of clinginess, I went a size up on this one to give me a little more wiggle room. Unfortunately though, this may have given the dress a different fit than was originally imagined by the designer.
