We all know that quote from The Devil Wears Prada where Miranda Priestly denounces florals for spring as hardly being groundbreaking. If you agree with the infamous fictional editor and you’re looking for something fresh for your spring wardrobe, you’ll be pleased to know that gingham was a major trend on the Spring 2017 runways.

The distinct checked fabric was seen at shows throughout fashion month, including Carolina Herrera, Blumarine, Peter Pilotto, House of Holland and Pringle of Scotland. And the look was quickly snapped up by editors, bloggers and street style stars. Much of the fashion set was already test-driving the print during the chilly days at the shows, which means you can start wearing it right now.

Besides being a fresh alternative to florals, gingham has clear appeal. The check is as classic as polka dots or stripes. It has a preppy vibe that is perfect for the warmer weather, but you can also find gingham pieces to suit your edgier style. Get on the gingham bandwagon with one of these spring picks.
