Gingham and stripes are very difficult to pull off in the winter when it is cold, we are pale and the natural landscape is dull. Often we wonder if stripes and gingham go together. Over the years, as more women have started wearing gingham and stripes, I have accumulated quite a bit of clothes that have these patterns which I use both for professional meetings and casual hang outs. Here are some of the ways I pair them. What I found most challenging about wearing gingham and stripes is the color of the pattern and the color of my hair. You’ll know what I mean as I change my hair color quite often.
