How to Style Gingham Pants

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!

      check out the land’s ends ones! They carry the line at Sears if you have one locally.

    They are such cute pants! I totally agree about your approach to styling, add texture instead of another print to come up with a truly timeless outfit! xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life
