Every year once spring rolls around, we can usually expect fashion to return to pastels, floral patterns and breezy lightweight fabrics. This season, the industry is also embracing the return of another perennial springtime favourite: gingham.

While it’s usually reserved for your Sunday best or leisurely picnics, this year’s crop of gingham styles have transformed the pattern into one of this season’s most covetable wardrobe updates.

Even stars like Reese Witherspoon and Emma Roberts have been wearing the pattern on repeat, in case you’re looking for another reason to add a little gingham to your wardrobe.
