How to wear the Gingham summer dress during Irish summer

Let’s face it gingham is here to stay and is THE TREND of the season so in some way or the other it might have crept up in your wardrobe. Gingham or checker patterns have always been my favourite and now that they are in fashion there are plenty of choices.

But how do you get to wear a lovely gingham summer dress in Ireland where summer is not really guaranteed?

The answer to the Irish weather even during summer is layers. The weather is something you can never trust on so you always have to be prepared for the cold, the wind a bit of rain and the sunshine. Although I would have loved to wear this gingham summer dress as a beach dress with just my bikini underneath this is not easy to happen in Ireland,  and you will have to be creative in order to enjoy your summer clothes.

Adding a white T-shirt, white trousers and wearing the dress as a dress top is a safer way for Irish summer. As I said earlier on it’s all about the layers so a jean jacket will be good to have.

So, on an Irish summer day with the temperature just enough to allow you not to wear a jacket and with a lot of wind, myself and Katya shot once more in our favourite place at Irish Modern Art Museum. The gardens there are so beautiful and they will always make a nice background for our shoots. (You can see our latest shoot from the IMMA here). So if you haven’t visited the Irish Modern Art Museum then this summer is the time to do so.
