I am a huge fan of the lighthearted and romantic Old Hollywood era of '50s and '60s, and thus I was thoroughly delighted to see gingham all over the Spring 2015 runways. In fact, my entire beachy gingham look was inspired by the South of France native Brigitte Bardot, and her white linen check dress worn on her wedding day in Paris. Of course, I adapted the look to the modern 21st century woman whom demands something chic and elegant for everyday.
Below, you will see I picked out a gingham loose fitting dress, white huge sunglasses (inspired by Audrey Hepburn's Oliver Goldsmith white sunglasses in the 1960s classic How to Steal a Million), and all white tennis shoes. Aside from gingham, all white sneakers are all the buzz this season. I suggest snagging a pair because all white sneakers are not only comfortable but match with absolutely anything!
The photos below were shot on the beautiful white sand beaches of Negril, Jamaica. Hence, I brought a bit of European and American style to the Caribbean. There you have it fashionistas, a bit of inspiration and style insight into the timeless gingham look. Until next time, stay beautiful and comfortable, xoxo from this Caribbean tropical paradise!
