Floral vs. Gingham: 12 Dresses to Welcome Summer In

No matter if floral prints strike your fancy or the bold checks of gingham are more your speed, either way, this season’s fabric du jour is one or the other but always country inspired. While these flowers are blooming, they are not quite as big and bold as those of the boho-chic persuasion and the gingham reads less preppy when styled in longer hems. The conservative silhouettes and understated patterns evoke the Laura Ingalls Wilder classic and have everyone wishing for a little more prairie simplicity in their lives, even if these dresses are to be paired with ankle boots and arm cuffs. But tougher accessories aside, a little country sweetness is sure to add a softer edge to any city style.
