Ginger vs. Mary Ann

Besides the original Batman series (I had a huge crush on Burt Ward), Gilligan's Island was definitely my favorite show to watch reruns of as a child. I was always fascinated by the Professor's crazy inventions, the Howells' incompetence, and of course the age-old debate of Ginger versus Mary Ann. Ginger got to parade around the island in gorgeous, slinky gowns (totally impractical), while Mary Ann rocked cute gingham tops and cutoff shorts. I definitely preferred Mary Ann's girl next door style to Ginger's movie star glam. Fortunately, the gingham check is back in style (and not just for your picnic table)! Here are some of my favorite picks for the trend.

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
Just remember, a little gingham goes a long way. Don't overdo it!
