Come spring, I jump for joy at brightly-hued jumpsuits, polka-dotted anything and florals, because what's warm weather without an outfit perpetually in bloom? Something about the sun and the liberation of limbs begs for cheery patterns and colors.
This year, gingham was splashed over Spring 2018 runways, providing me with the sartorial reassurance to invest in more of the check pattern. I've always been a fan of the friendly repeating squares that look part picnic, part Southern prep school, but as the temperatures rise – if they ever do — I'm fully giving into my check impulses, starting with this light-blue gingham mini from the Frankie Shop. I love both its peaceful baby blue hue and the double slit detailing on its front. It also comes with a removable and practical black vegan leather belt and for added fun — and $189 — a matching, over-size blazer.
Gingham Light Blue Mini Skirt, $129, available at the Frankie Shop.
