The Pattern You Need to Try This Summer: Gingham

It's simple, yet chic, can be styled so many ways, and chances are you've been seeing this trend everywhere lately... GINGHAM! Today, I'm sharing my new favorite summer top: an off-the-shoulder, black and white gingham top from J.Crew factory. You're going to love this look for the summertime!

Pattern to try: 

This lightweight top from J.Crew Factory is seriously made for summer! It has a hidden tie-closure at the front, so you can easily adjust how tight or loose the top is. This is perfect for the off-the-shoulder trend, so you don't have to worry about the sleeves sliding up or down at all... you'll always have the perfect fit! I also bought this top in solid yellow, and it comes in red, white and denim as well! 

This top goes great with white denim jeans and we all know how much I love my J.Crew white denim! I seriously wear these bad boys everywhere and I'm convinced that you will never find a pair of white skinny jeans better than the ones linked below. Trust me when I say that J.Crew needs to be your go-to spot for jeans and leggings!

I finished this look off with some adorable (yet super old) espadrille wedges. I've linked similar options below for you since espadrille wedges are a must-have this season and are the perfect finishing touch to any summer outfit!
