Think gingham is reserved only for napkins and tablecloths? You may want to reconsider.

The classic checked fabric has always been popular when it comes to tabletop designs, but this summer, it's getting a stylish update.

We've seen gingham on everything from dresses and shorts to shoes, swimwear and accessories. Whether you're headed to a picnic in the country or a day of work in the city, these gingham pieces will give any outfit a retro-chic flair.
