Gingham. Alongside stripes and polka dots, the gingham pattern is also considered as timeless by many in the fashion industry. And although its story began on tablecloths – yes, gingham was a popular standard for towels in the eighteenth century – the truth is that it was only in the 1940s that it became officially popular.

 

Fashion and the gingham pattern

 

Due to the Great Depression and the Second World War, the opulent garments gave way to fabrics such as cotton, simple and durable. And, one of the patterns that began to be more worn by women was gingham, with its characteristic squares. Consequently, in the United States of America, it became so popular, under the name of gingham, that it even became a patriotic symbol. In Europe, people used to call it Vichy.

Also, the “The Wizard of Oz” movie, was responsible for the popularity of the print. Having premiered on August 25, 1939, one of the characters, Dorothy, wore a gingham dress, of course. From then on, there were many films where the gingham pattern played a prominent role. Among them “The Philadelphia Story” where famous actress Katharine Hepburn wore both a skirt and a gingham gown.

The pattern became a trend and all women wanted to wear a gingham piece. But it was only in 1959 when actress Brigitte Bardot married actor Jacques Carrier in a pink and white gingham dress signed by designer Jacques Estérel (the actress was pregnant and therefore did not want to wear a traditional dress), that the trend really exploded.

Women like Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor were just a few of the celebrities who have eternalized it and helped it become timeless.

Today, the gingham pattern remains fashionable and is perfect for everyone who enjoys long-lasting patterns. I mean, unlike patterns like the zebra. the gingham does not tire, being able to be used either to go out with friends or to work.

And speaking of work, this gingham dress I found at Shein, is perfect for work looks. You can use it with sneakers like me if your work environment is more relaxed, or with some high-heeled shoes or ballerinas if it’s more formal. As it is midi, it is feminine and elegant at once. And, the best thing is that the price does not reach 20 €. Great isn’t it?
