Who doesn’t love gingham? The pattern is both classic and fun at the same time, and looks especially great in the navy/white combo. Gingham first became popular post World War II and has really seen a resurgence the past few years with no signs of slowing down. As most preppy styled ladies, I gravitate towards anything gingham and these pants are no exception.
When I first tried these on I couldn’t believe how comfortable they were. Pants are often tricky, and a lot of them can feel uncomfortable after a few hours (at least in my case). The waistband seems to be a little higher and the fabric is thicker, which may be why I can wear these all day and still be comfortable.
My favorite sweater is the Drifter by Land’s End. I had the sleeve monogrammed and I really enjoy that subtle touch. Reminds me of something from the 1950’s you’d cherish for generations.
When styling gingham pants, I also keep the rest of the outfit solid with a little texture (like a cable knit). I’m all for pattern mixing but this pattern is too tiny and would be hard to do so successfully. I look forward to styling these pants with a chambray shirt and red pointed toe flats as the weather gets warmer!
