10 Gingham Dress Style Ideas
Are you sick of this gingham dress yet? Ha!
Just a quick recap of the outfits I’ve already shared…
I had to take a break from this series last week because I was suffering from gingham fatigue.
I’m back this week with seven more outfit ideas.
Once I got on a roll with this the ideas just kept coming.
Don’t worry…I’m only sharing four more outfits today and I’ll share the remainder soon.
Gingham Dress Outfit #7
I’m kind of obsessed with pushing the outside of the envelope so I tried bold florals next to the bold black and white gingham. It’s okay…but it’s not my favourite.
Gingham Dress Outfit #8
This look is a winner. This styling would be better in motion to show off these funky thrifted tights.
Gingham Dress Outfit #9
Plaid and gingham is fun too. This look has a bit of a Mary Poppins vibe which seems to be my go-to lately.
Gingham Bonus Outfit #10
This one is a simple outfit but it’s one of my favourites. It is interesting without being overwhelming.
I like the idea of combining gingham with polkadots. Especially colourful polka dots. Does that surprise you? ; P
What do you think of these 10 gingham dress style ideas? Which one do you prefer?
I still have three more outfits to share with you. I had four but kicked one to the curb. My gingham mojo was suffering a bit at that point I think.
I have to add that I was happy to be included in IFB for their Links à la Mode last week.

Impossible to be sick of a gingham dress, as I’m concerned!, and I love these new and fresh ensembles!, particularly those gingham & florals combos!. I really like your floral jacket , and those leggings!, such awesome florals!. But I’m a huge fan of tartan, so my favorite could be number 9, even if it’s difficult to pick only one!
Lovely inspiring posts!

Thanks so much! : )

That gingham dress is the queen of print mixing, Suzanne!! How could one get sick of it.
I love the idea of leggings under it—they aren’t a focal point, but you get a cool glimpse when you move and such!!! Brilliance!!!
Anna Parkes says
I love this dress and certainly am happy to see more of it, so bring it on! I think my fave today has to be the version with those fancy tights – such fun! The polka dots are cute too though…
I have to admit I also suffer from A bit from gingham fatigue… at least I thought so until I saw this post. You are killing it here without this number seven , eight and nine! These are absolutely fantastic looks.
Happy week ahead Suzanne!
That is seriously the most amazing dress of all time! I really love the longer length. I just ordered a blue gingham skirt – completely out of my comfort zone but I’m excited to try it. Have a great week!
Keep those ideas comin’ – you are a styling genius! I love all the combos but my favourite has to be the tartan blazer, polka dot tie and yellow shoes, so quirky, Spring-like and fun. Hmmmm, maybe I shouldn’t part with my vintage gingham maxi after all! xxx
i cant pick a favorite – all the looks are fabulous!!
and i see a gingham dress – b&w of cause – in my near future 😀
YAY! Keep going. I love these outfits and this dress. I’m loving seven. Eight is so much fun too, that pattern mashing, the silhouette, the yellow shoes – magnificent! I wouldn’t be bored if this was the only thing you ever did – loving it!
Jessica A Jannenga says
I finally found a gingham top I am in love with! I can see the obsession. Its vintage, its a fun pattern. i really love these styles.. those floral tights with the dress as a jacket is perfection! I love how you mix prints! I really need to do this more, as I love the look.
Have a great week!
You should get that shop to pay you for promoting that gingham frock! I bet there isn’t anybody on the whole planet who’d come up with more and/or better ideas on how to wear it. My favourite is the gingham/plaid combo, with the yellow shoes, but the simple gingham and polka dot one is gorgeous as well. Simple but very effective! Looking forward to see what else you’ve got in store for us! xxx
I like the way you styled it with the floral leggings and the blue shoes! Gingham is fantastic!
Gingham will never go out of style and you are rockin’ this dress like nobody. I love style #8 with the tights and would surely wear this to threads. Thanks for showing us your pattern mixing skills. Kudos!!

Do we have to pick a favorite??? OK. OK. Let’s see…. The one with the tights is the most memorable to me–memorable in a good way. It has a vibrancy to it I’m really drawn to. I like the other ones too, but that look, of these four, is my fav.
Marilee Gramith says
I’m blown away by your creative genius with patterns. Gingham with polka dots and plaid are two looks I intend to explore further. The tights are a great way to offer the “dress as coat” concept and I LOVE you for coming up with that!!
These looks have real power because they require revolutionary styling and gutsy interpretations. Maybe that kind of thinking can bring on the need for regrouping so I get your desire for a break too!
No Fear of Fashion says
Again so good!! I love the dress with the colourful tights, and with the polka dot scarf. No way you are sending this one back. I have to have another look at my gingham tunic top. I definitely did not try hard enough.
Deborah Stinedurf says
You probably already know that I absolutely love the dress over the leggings/tights since I had a cow over it when I saw it on Instagram. There is just something so funky cool chic about that amazing print peeking out from under the gingham dress.
