Never too late to discover Gingham style

It’s easy to play safe when choosing a shirt to wear to work or on a night out.
Simple, clear but strong colours can dominant our wardrobes and make your clothes rail begin to resemble a packet of Refreshers.
A way to break up your own collection is to inject patterns and textures to your clothes. Gangnam, sorry, Gingham style is a great way to do that.
Gingham is a striped design but is best known for its checked or plaid patterns.
If you like the idea of dark but colourful tones then a Jeff Banks designer purple gingham shirt and tie set could be the way forward.
It’s a smarter, almost formal, look but still retains a certain edge. Which is always good.
If you want to wear a quality gingham shirt in a more casual way, and without a tie, then the St George by Duffer red gingham checked long sleeved shirt is a worthwhile purchase.
Nautica, our exciting US brand, have a cracking purple gingham shirt which goes with almost any outfit and occasion. A definite ‘go to’ piece.
So get out there and mix it up a bit. With the party season around the corner it could be the best move you make all year.
