Gingham, the checkered white and colored fabric Judy Garland famously donned in the Wizard of Oz, took over the Spring 2015 runways. From Oscar de la Renta’s oversized take of the mod fabric to Altuzarra, Michael Kors and Bottega Venetta’s use of the pattern, it looks like gingham is here to stay (well, at least for this upcoming season).

If you’re not a fan of the retro pattern, look back to Brigitte Bardot for inspiration. The blond bombshell walked down the aisle in a pink gingham dress, a move so daring it caused a gingham shortage in France. Who could’ve guessed that could even happen?
