When I wear gingham, I feel like sunshine and picnics. Nothing says hello summer more than a pretty gingham dress. In fact, gingham is the biggest trend of the season and it never goes out of style. It’s the first weekend of June, and the weather couldn’t be more perfect for a day out with my sweet hubby Gary, so I am wearing my new 50s inspired Roberta Gingham Swing Dress from Collectif Clothing.

Their size-inclusive collections, which range from XS-22, elegantly celebrate every body shape and size, re-imagining the enchanting fashion of the 1940s and 1950s for the contemporary woman.
My Retro Summer Gingham Dress: The experience slipping into Collectif Clothing’s retro summer gingham dress is an experience in itself. The moment you don this beautiful dress, you instantly feel feminine and dainty. It features a sweetheart neckline framed with a delightful white collar detail, mirroring the short sleeves that share the same pretty, white detail.
This dress has a magic of its own; it effortlessly cinches my waist, highlighting the natural curves of my body. The flared swing skirt adds a breezy charm that’s perfect for those hot summer days. Underneath, I wear a petticoat to give the skirt its full, flowing silhouette that I so adore. The dress also features pockets, a practical addition that I find delightful, and a matching belt that accentuates my waist.
But the charm doesn’t stop there. The retro summer gingham dress fits comfortably, accommodating my full bust without any issues. It’s rare to find a dress that offers such a flattering fit without compromising comfort, but Collectif Clothing seems to have perfected the art.
Styling the retro summer gingham dress I love the inherent simplicity of this dress, which needs little adornment to shine. I pair it with basic heels and my petite pink summer purse, and voila – a perfect summer outfit. The 1950s silhouette, my personal favorite, accentuates my curves in all the right places, embracing the vintage style that Collectif Clothing does so well.
A Day Out in the Retro Summer Gingham Dress: A recent trip up north took us to the idyllic wine country, and a stroll through the quaint town of Healdsburg. Amid the tourists flocking in from San Francisco, I received countless compliments on my dress. It seems that everyone loves a gingham dress, and this one is indeed a showstopper!
