Bullet Blues Trend Watch: Gingham

The snow is finally melting, the birds are finally singing, and spring is finally here! At Bullet Blues, we’re packing away our puffer jackets and snow boots, and breaking out our spring staples: floral dresses, raffia wedges, floaty cardigans, and, of course, gingham.

Nothing screams spring like a flouncy gingham dress, but the edgy versions of this pattern that our favorite designers sent down the runways not too long ago ranged from Paris-girl cool to 60s punk princess. Gingham is versatile, accessible, and easily wearable, and we believe it should be in any Bullet Blues girl’s wardrobe. Read on to learn how to incorporate this of-the-moment trend into your everyday wardrobe!

Nothing says ‘working girl’ like a sleek pencil skirt, right? Jazz up this 9-to-5 staple with a fun but neutral gingham print for a trendy touch. Pair your pencil skirt with a cute blouse in a flattering cut, like Bullet Blues Elodie Rock Top for a work look that’s flattering, not frumpy. (If you’re worried about coverage, you can always add a white tuxedo blazer for an edgy touch.)

Add some trendy accessories, like mules and a bucket bag in an of-the-moment color like aquamarine, and a simple silver statement necklace. Finish with a swipe of red lipstick, and you’re ready to tackle that deadline!

Weekend

For weekend looks, you want to be comfortable, but still trendy and effortless – not as easy as it sounds, right? Update this tried-and-true combo of a crop top and Bullet Blues Le Copain Reverie Boyfriend Jeans with a cutesy pink gingham blouse.

Cool-girl accessories like a metallic tote bag and white birkenstock-style sandals keep this look from being too sweet, while a duster-length cardigan gives you a little coverage against blustery spring winds while you’re out running your errands.

Date

This sexy look proves that gingham isn’t just for Easter dresses! If you want to dress up for that cutie you’re meeting on Saturday night, start with a sexy staple like Bullet Blues Chic Parisien Skinny Cigarette Jean, and add a cheeky off-the-shoulder top in a coquettish red gingham over a slinky lace bralette. Then add edgy accessories. like studded combat boots, a crystal bullet necklace, and a leather bucket bag. Finish the look with tousled waves and a grey fedora for an effortless cool-girl vibe, and no one will be able to take their eyes off you that night!
