Look picnic perfect this summer!

This summer's statement print is gingham, that checkerboard pattern that conjures up images of wicker picnic baskets and diner decor. Everyone from J. Crew to Victoria Beckham featured the iconic print in their spring/summer collections, so hop on this trend for a modern Americana outfit!

Give just a hint with gingham shoes or a purse, or go all out with a Betty Draper-style dress.

Here are some ways to style gingham for summer:

Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes wearing Capulet top, Jesse Kamm pants, and Margiela shoes
Mary Seng of Happily Grey wearing Ann Taylor top and shorts, AG Jeans jacket, and Prada shoes
Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury wearing Anthropologie top and skirt, ChloƩ purse, Cornetti Innamorati shoes, and Prada sunglasses
Shoe designer Haley Boyd wearing Mango top, Victoria Beckham pants, Marais shoes, and Mark Cross purse (via Vogue)
