The colours are most often blue and white or red and white. This cool, breathable textile varies from medium to lightweight and can range from a very small, checked pattern to very large checks.
There is no right or wrong side in gingham as it has the same appearance on both sides. This is due to the fibres already being coloured before they are woven together.
This makes gingham a perfect fabric for making clothing (and also table cloths).
However at Joules we’re very fond of giving the classics a twist – so with that in mind we looked at what we could do to make this classic fabric stand out from the crowd. We’ve picked five pieces from our new Gingham Collection that need adding to your wardrobe (or suitcase) this summer. From classic dresses to waterproof coats, these are the styles you need to check out…
A lightweight waterproof is an essential piece for life in the British Isles. This jacket packs away into its pocket and is a shorter version of our ever-popular Golightly packaway. And if you can’t choose between checks and florals, don’t worry – choose both.
This simple shirt dress is an easy to wear summer piece that will see you through all manner of occasions. With cap sleeves and a waist tie for a flattering shape.
This lightweight, sleeveless cotton top is a summer outfit builder that every woman’s wardrobe needs. With unique Joules prints this one can be dressed up or down.
A well-cut shirt is a must for any wardrobe, one cut from high-quality, summer-loving linen and in a stunning gingham check, is an outfitting essential.
We’ve given our classic pieces the gingham treatment too. Our best-selling scarf, The Wensley has been adorned with this classic check, making it a perfect partner to any summer outfit.
