Sure, Dorothy rocked gingham in The Wizard of Oz, but there’s more of a fashion sense there than you might think. The gingham look has spawned some modern takes by fashion bloggers like Atlantic Pacific — think Mad Men meets Susie Homemaker. It’s cute and wholesome but also sparks a little mystery.
This Alicia Bell gingham dress
has fitted panels at the waist so that the fit is flattering yet still retains that conservative vibe. Turning this dress into a full force vintage
look is all about the styling.
This Beak You To It Necklace
was another great find on Mod Cloth. It still brings home the sweet side that is gingham and the mixed metals and bluebird imagery ring true to a retro look.
First up is the fascinator hat! This one from Mod Cloth
is made up of pretty fabrics like velvet and satin. The cherry on top of the icing is the fur accents and the netted top that screams, “I’m vintage!”
