This summer there are two key trends surpassing everything else—straw basket bags and anything gingham. It's hardly a surprise, then, that the one outfit that we keep seeing over and over again involves both. This summer's throw-on look, whether for the beach or the city, is a gingham-check top paired with raw-hem denim (short or long) and a Jane Birkin–esque basket bag.
Thanks to the Instagram set, we have no shortage of inspiration for how to style this look, as everyone from Reem Kanj to Lucy Williams has been sticking to this easy-to-copy outfit formula, each time putting a different spin on the look.
