Looking for a fun, fresh take on a classic? Gingham never goes out of style. I have some special workplace events coming up, and I wanted to incorporate this trend into three different looks.
This first look is definitely my favorite. I paired this gingham camp shirt with my white blazer. I wore it with the same black cropped pants and nude strappy heels featured in my previous post. This would be a great springtime look for the office because a camp shirt is lightweight and it is still appropriate to wear without a blazer.

A great tip to keep in mind when styling gingham is that smaller checks are better suited for work because the pattern is more subtle compared to a larger check. Stick to neutral colors, like navy or black, to give the pattern a more “profesh” look. I added a statement necklace to all the looks to add that final bit of pizazz. You can read more about how to find the right statement necklace for the workplace here. I found a similar necklace from Nordstrom.
This next look adds a pop of color, if you’re feeling a little bold. Since the gingham is a larger check, it seems more casual, but the navy color makes it work-appropriate. Since pink is a contrasting color to navy, it acts as a great accent, which makes this classic look modern and bright.
I found these pink flats at Nordstrom, and I found a similar pink bag online at Nordstrom Rack. These accessories tie the outfit together to make a statement. For a more conservative look, you can pair the dress with a cardigan. Check out more details on how to tie in accent colors into your basic wardrobe here.
My final outfit takes the gingham trend to another level with these patterned pants. These pants look great for the office when paired with a white shell and a navy blazer, but can also be paired with a denim top and some nude wedges for a fun Sunday brunch look. I paired them with these cognac Steve Madden slides, which I found online. The slides are a trendy update on the typical ballet flat, and they give your feet a break when you don’t want to wear heels.
