Gings of New York

 

Gingham has got to be one of my favorite prints. It’s got such a vintage look to it. I just love it. So of course when I spotted these pants at Re/Dress NYC, I wanted to take them home with me, but I left them. To my surprise when I went back two months later, the pants were still on the rack, so I definitely took them this time. Oh and the best part is, they only cost me a couple of pairs of shorts that I sold to Re/Dress that day!

With the $20 price tag, I resisted for a minute, but then once I realized how adorable these cropped Gingham pants were, I needed to make the purchase. I paired the pants with my blue silky button-up from H&M by way of Netta P’s Clothing Swap.

I love the color combination of red, white, black & blue, so added the red details–flower pin (99 Cent Store–made it myself from a fake flower), red shoes (Avenue $34) and a red belt via Netta P’s Clothing Swap.

The pants have this sheen to them that I think makes them extra fancy. I’ve gotten so many compliments because of these pants. They’re definitely a wardrobe staple.

I put two feather earrings on one side–a blue and a red to add to the grand color scheme. I guess you can kind of call it color blocking, but I’m a coloraholic, so, it’s normal for me.

How do you rock Gingham print?
