STS: Go for Gingham

Gingham has been the name of the game this spring season. Forget the stripes, polka dots, and plaid, and we are heading into our summer break in gingham. So what is this infamous gingham pattern that has been seen all around the UCLA campus? Gingham fabric has been around for over five hundred years. The word “gingham” was originally the Malayan word genggang which translated to “striped.” As years passed, this striped phenomenon got lost in translation and transformed into the black and white checkered pattern that we all know today. In the fashion world gingham has been used in a sophisticated pant for business meetings, in rompers for a Saturday picnic, and a midi skirt as you strut to that midterm. No matter what your occasion is, know that gingham is the way to go.
