The One Print That Will Define Summer 2019

Green gingham has long been reserved for primary school pinafores and vinyl tablecloths, but this summer it has leapfrogged polka dots to become the most in-demand print. Once you notice green gingham, you'll see it everywhere—this print is dominating both the high street and being reimagined by more luxury designers like Molly Goddard and Burberry.

A number of Instagram-famous labels like Faithfull the Brand and Shrimps have made green gingham a popular option for the beach, as both have created checked bikinis and cover-ups in a lime grid print. The shade of green varies from a muted sage to a neon, so this trend can be as subtle as you make it.

There are a number of trending gingham pieces out there, including a £59 fitted midi dress from & Other Stories and a lime button-front dress from Faithfull. Keep scrolling to see how the Instagram crowd is wearing this print this summer, and then shop our favourite pieces.
