On the Runway: Whether you're perusing the farmer's market, hitting the beach or packing a picnic basket, wear a graphic gingham. Spring is all about that classic check pattern that feels beachy and retro. Design by Tsumori Chisato
In the Home: Designer Brian Patrick Flynn proves gingham is an ideal pattern for both men and women. To put a gender-neutral spin on gingham, choose a feminine color such as pink or coral for tailored upholstery and use chrome nailheads. The combination, he says, will create a menswear-inspired look that's also female-friendly.
