The Fab 40s are back at it!! This month we all pulled off the very popular spring trend gingham in some way or another. Ironically, four out of the five of us had some sort of gingham shirt, so in this post, you can see four very different ways to style the gingham shirt that is probably already in your closet–including an attempt to turn a shirt into a skirt–say what!? Finally, we could count on one of all gals to rock a pair of out-of-this-world gingham heels–maybe not so frequent in everyone’s closet but still totally rock-able! The Fab 40s–Jane, Dixie, Dawn, Sheela, and myself–bring you a hot trend each month and show you five different (fabulous) ways to style the look. Here’s our March take with the marsala, the color of the year, April’s look with jumpsuits, and now this May with gingham. Enjoy!

For my outfit, I was determined not to add anymore gingham to my closet. I did look, but then when I shopped in my own closet I saw that I already owned two gingham shirts. I’ve been fascinated lately by an idea with a men’s shirt that kept popping up: wearing a men’s shirt as a dress. That inspired me to play around with what I already owned. Presto! A new skirt (and idea for turning my shirts into skirts) was born. I simply just buttoned the shirt lower at my waist until it wouldn’t button any further. Then, I tucked in the collar and simply tied. A skirt was born! Will you give this look a try? I might do it again…
