We are (obviously) just crazy about gingham here at Mod Circus. It can be dressed up or down, it can look very modern or super retro, totally polished or whimsical. It's the fun cousin of plaid and it's perfectly suited for summer and fall alike. If you're still not convinced, take a look at some of the gingham looks we've styled to see for yourself what a range gingham can cover.
