Gingham is in for Spring!
Being mainly influenced by vintage and retro designs and patterns, we're not often 'on trend' with the main stream fashion world, but it seems, this Spring we will be just that! It's hard to look at any fashion news (again, not something that we do very often!) without noticing pretty, nostalgic checks making a jolly appearance on the catwalks... yes, Gingham is in for Spring 2017!

With many of the main fashion houses splashing gingham across their collections and mixing it up with big bold prints we can't help feeling that our versatile gingham bandanas will be hot this year! Already one of our best selling items, our square bandanas are extremely versatile accessories. They can be worn as head scarves, wraps, head bands and neck ties. We make them to original 1950's dimensions so you can easily create an authentic vintage style or go for that edgy Rockabilly revival look ... and now it seems they are perfect if you want to give a nod to current trends.
Gingham can be a tricky look to pull off if worn in big pieces, so adding a splash with your accessories can be a great way to add some super cute nostalgia to an outfit without going the whole Dorothy!
Don't just take our word for it, here are some of the fashion articles we stumbled upon this week with more tips for using gingham in your spring wardrobe;

We are kicking off 2020 with the fabulous Aisling, a self-confessed vintage addict, whose self-build home is crammed full of amazing thrifted finds, vintage furniture and eclectic art. A labour of love over many years, a family home layered with history, stories and intrigue … I think I could happily get lost here for days ….
Well, here we are at the end of another decade, as someone pointed out to me the other day. Here was I thinking it's goodbye to just another year, but hey, turns out it's a whole decade! ... So I thought it might be a good idea to have a look back at all the fabulous homes we have featured in 2019 from countries all over the world, and then if you missed any, you can go catch up on some gorgeous retro decor.
On The Inkabilly Blog this week I thought we should create an ode to those who are absolutely rockin' it in the kitschmas department. A smorgasbord, if you will, of festive kitsch in all it's many splendid forms. You might want to grab a cuppa and get comfy ... this is a mega collection!
