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.

From feminine dresses and blouses to delicate accessories, there’s no end to the options available to bring a pop of gingham to your closet.
