Gingham stole my heart in 2017 and I have been hooked ever since! It was a long and cold winter without my favorite print, but so excited that it’s just as popular in 2018. This season I am obsessing over gingham dresses. They are the perfect statement piece and are sure to garner a lot of compliments!
Gingham dresses come in a wide variety of styles, colors and price ranges. Many are suitable for backyard barbecues, pool parties, graduations, bridal showers, baby showers, the Kentucky Derby, wedding guest season, date night, vacationing and more.
They’re easy to dress up or down with your favorite shoes, jewelry and accessories! Gingham dresses will look amazing with slides, wedge sandals, strappy heels, mules and more. My only advice is to make sure your shoes are a neutral color, so your dress steals the show!

This comfy smocked off the shoulder dress with ruffled gingham at the hem is a favorite of mine! It’ll look great with bow slides, slide sandals, wedges or sneakers! Wayf is one of my favorite brands, I love their dresses and tops. The quality is great, especially for the low price. Did I mention this dress is only $75! It’s such a bargain for a dress that you will wear all spring and summer.

Fab Ruffle Gingham Dresses
It’s no secret, ruffles and gingham are two of the hottest spring and summer fashion trends for 2018! If you’re searching for a trendy ruffle gingham dress this season, you’re in luck. We have the scoop on a few dresses you will absolutely adore.

I love this dress, but debated featuring it because the neckline is so low. If you love this dress too, but aren’t comfortable with the neckline, I’d highly recommend wearing a neutral cami or even a lace camisole underneath. I don’t think wearing one would take away from the dress, I think it would enhance it. The camisole trend is incredibly popular these days!

Bardot is one of the most popular dress brands! They’re absolutely gorgeous, and at affordable prices. How cute is this gingham off the shoulder dress by Bardot? It’s so popular that it’s nearly sold out. There’s only one size left, but I would definitely keep checking as it’s sure to be restocked in your size if it isn’t available.
How gorgeous is this midi length gingham dress with lace and ruffle detailing? I love the tie waist! It combines so many great trends. I think it’d be perfect for the graduate or someone attending a graduation party. You can wear it wine tasting, to Mother’s Day brunch, the Derby, a summer soiree and more.
