Gingham – this preppy staple has become the hottest summer trend, and I am SO happy about it. The checkered print is so versatile I’ve come across it while browsing furniture, home accessories, party decor, and of course my favorite – clothing!

I recently discovered this gingham dress while shopping at Island Gypsy, a cute little boutique near the beach. The checkered print came in two different colors – either black&white or blue&white. I decided to go for the black&white because I knew the colors would carry me successfully through the fall.

The bodice of this strapless dress is composed of smocked elastic for a close fit and the statement ruffle sleeves are so fun and flirty! I love how flattering this piece is and I know it will be a staple in my wardrobe.


I styled this dress with my Soludos Ghillie Lace-Up Suede Platform Sandals. This platform espadrille sandal has been my go-to all summer! I also wore my Diff Eyewear Sunglasses in Astro Tortoise Frame’s for a pop of color to this all black&white outfit 🙂


Unfortunately Island Gypsy doesn’t have an online store, so I’ve linked some of my favorite gingham dresses and tops 🙂 Shop my look here!
