If you loved Michael Kors' take on polka-dots for spring 2009, chances are you'll fall head over heels for his take on gingham, too. He used this classic check print on belted dresses with full skirts that were both playful and chic, which inspired me to seek out some affordable gingham frocks for myself. I honestly love all four choices (#3 has an amazing deep v-back detail, and #4 reminds me of L.A.M.B.), but #2 has my heart aflutter (which is not surprising, seeing as how it's from the new Isaac Mizrahi for Liz Claiborne collection). Which of these four frocks would make your checklist?
