Brigitte Bardot was ahead of her time when she opted to wear a pink gingham dress to wed actor Jacques Charrier in the summer of 1959. Known mostly for the Dorothy-association and its place at a picnic, the checked print has received a sexy-cool upgrade for Spring 2015, and we think BB would approve. Gingham dresses rendered in sheer or with striking slits turned the heat up a notch on the runways at Altuzarra and Diane von Furstenberg, while separates in unexpected tones felt more playful than played out at Karen Walker.
