Two Trends Together: Cold Shoulder Top With a Gingham Skirt

I am a huge fan of the cold shoulder trend that is all the rage at the moment.  It seems to be universally flattering, appropriate for all ages and a great solution for ladies who prefer not to show too much of their upper arms .

The other new trend that is reigning supreme is gingham. What I love about gingham is that is lends its self so effortlessly to so many looks.  Blue and red gingham always reminds me of summer school uniforms and yellow gingham of beautiful baby nurseries. There are a multitude of colour choices on the high street but black and white gingham is probably my current favourite.

While gingham look great by itself, my recommendation to make a gingham look pop is to add another bright colour to the outfit. I think the addition of a bright colour in any form, be it shoes or a handbag, really brings the gingham check to the forefront and makes for a stylish fashion forward look.

I have paired my black ‘cold shoulder’ jumper with a high-low hem gingham skirt.  I can see myself wearing this skirt through the summer with trainers and sandals.  For now, I have gone for a dressier look with classic black high-heeled courts and a clutch bag.  I have finished it off with a bright blue woollen jacket with padded leather sleeves.  The jacket adds a fabulous pop of colour that makes the outfit stand out from the crowd.

I hope you enjoyed this look and have a fabulous rest of the week! As always, thank you for visiting my blog.

One thought

  1. I also love the cold shoulder look that’s on trend- I just need to remember to bring a shawl! The style is also flattering in longer tunic tops with leggings- a little more casual and fun for on the go polished looks or dressed up for dinner with friends.

    I really like the sweet ruffle that accentuates the shoulders. Nice pairings all around!
