Joe’s Style Edit: Must-Have Summer Gingham!

Looking to add a little nostalgia to your wardrobe this summer? Let us introduce you to this season’s must-have print; gingham…

 

The word gingham was coined in the 17th century as a striped fabric imported to Europe from India and didn’t become the pattern we know and love today until the mid-18th century, when Manchester mills started weaving fabric into checked or plaid patterns – often blue and white, but this season we’re loving an array of bright and beautiful gingham finishes.

So, whether you’re loving getting your fashion inspiration from the past, are looking to add a modern vintage twist to your wardrobe or just want to dip your toe into this retro trend with some accessories, we’ve got loads of fabulous styles for you to choose from.

 


Vintage Vixen…


Let’s kick things off with one of our favourite and most versatile styles of the season, Joe’s Printed Capri Pants – perfect for dressing up or down depending on the occasion. Made from comfortable stretch cotton and complete with contrasting trim throughout, these capri’s will help give a subtle nod to this season gingham trend whilst being a timeless wardrobe staple for years to come… Make sure you get yours quick though, they’re a limited-edition style!

Looking to go full vintage vixen? Style yours with Joe’s beautiful Frill Sleeve Blouse – in a ravishing red, with waterfall sleeveless unique button detail and finished with a fabulously flattering shape – you’ll be radiating vintage charm! Add the finishing touches with Joe’s Pointelle Heart Cardigan and the Lovely Patent Mary Janes.
