GET THE LOOK: GINGHAM GIRLS

Hello ladies! Today we'll be borrowing a look from the boys: the classic gingham button-down shirt. Cristina from Fuji Files here to show you how to mix some menswear into your feminine summer ensembles.
Gingham has been spotted peeking out from the collars of the smartest street stylers - here are their techniques for styling the picnic blanket print.

Mixmaster Kelly Framel topped her tough look off with glittery gold stilettos! Take a page from her book and include feminine textures like lace and gold in your menswear-inspired outfit. Blogger Blair Eadie and model Freja Beha Erichsen both layered their gingham shirts to perfection with the model-off-duty staple: a t-shirt. The foundation is simple enough, layer your favorite tee with a gingham shirt (buttoned all the way up for extra style points) then add feminine textures and colors like lace and coral!
