This spring sees the return of gingham, the trend that took center stage on the runways. Designers Diane von Furstenberg, Tsumori Chisato and Temperley mixed gingham with other prints such as florals and plaids to create a bold look. Gingham went sexy secretary at Altuzarra with prim and proper shirt-dresses and skirt suits made provocative with plunging necklines and high slits. A retro French Riviera look also popped up in several collections including Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta, and Diane von Furstenberg. It's a great alternative to spring's other classic, florals. So it's time to "check" it out!
