Trend Alert: Gingham Check!

We all know how big Tartan print was for Autumn/Winter but as we move into Spring its time to add a new pattern to your wardrobe – Gingham Check! Between Plaid, Tartan, Gingham and Check it can all get a bit confusing so here is a quick explanation on how to distinguish between them all.
Check is a collective name given to prints such as Gingham, Houndstooth, Windowpane, Tartan etc. The print that is hotly tipped to be big this Spring is Gingham. Gingham comes in a checkered pattern and is distinguished by white and coloured, even-sized checks.
As we come accustomed to Gingham for this coming spring Summer we look for some guidance from ladies who have got the Gingham trend down to a tee.
