According to Ruth Negga, Amal Cooney and Sienna Miller, it's all about gingham this summer. Appearing across everything including trousers, dresses, jackets and accessories, gingham looks modern when worn with off-duty denim and soft knitwear. Opt for streamlined silhouettes and team with boxy shapes to play down ginghams twee associations. Plus, choose bold colour combinations such as Maisie Williams black and mustard mix or, as seen on Kate Middleton and Ruth Negga, slide on a smart pointed-toe heel for a more polished look.?
