Happy Friday,

Slowly picking up pace on my blog posts again whilst I sort out my personal issues. Sorry for the slowdown over the last 2 weeks. Should be back on track very soon with exciting collaborations and giveaways coming your way soon.

Meanwhile, as mentioned in my previous post on my " 10 MUST HAVES FOR SPRING WARDROBE 2015", Gingham is heavy trending in terms of pattern for this year. So some of you may be wondering what is the difference then between Gingham prints,  Checks, Plaid & Tartan?

Gingham pattern are usually smaller check prints of equal width ( square) and often alternating with white. Many often associate this kind of print with aprons, kitchen cloths and young girls' outfits. But 2015 will see this print in clothing styles that would take it up a notch to a sexy level.

Plaid ( as its known in the USA & Canada) OR Tartan, is often associated with Scottish kilts or blanket patterns. Consisting of varying criss crossing of horizontal and vertical bands where the varying stripes meet, this gives the appearance of new colours blended from the original ones.

Checks tend to be larger square patterns of equal width, similar to Gingham, and often alternating with white or black though not always.

So now that we have cleared up the confusion of these varying checkered patterns, here's my style inspiration for you this week. As I do not own anything in Gingham JUST YET ( and hopefully I will look at getting some), therefore I decided to pull out my checkered peplum skirt - being the next closest pattern to Gingham and trend it since the weather has warmed up a little.

Nice to throw on a floppy hat and statement jewelry to top off the whole look!

So how at best can you Style Gingham pattern for 2015? Here are some Street Styles over Fashion Week SS 2015 trending Gingham prints, for you to draw your inspirations from.
