On Trend: Chevron Prints

Chevron prints have been around for a few seasons but you can find almost any piece of clothing or accessory in this print now. It is a very versatile print that you can take from a casual summer look to a warm look for autumn.

The chevron print is very dramatic, fun and definitely a statement piece, however, it’s still chic and girly for a classic look. If you want to wear the print, but want to appear softer choose a print with like colors, such as multiple blues or different shades of pink. Another option is to choose a print of one color paired with white, so the pattern will alternate between the two and still maintain a soft look. If you want to be bolder, try something like these JustFab shoes that incorporate multiple neon colors!

The fun thing about this trend is that it can cross over from your closet to your home. House ware pieces, like accent pillows, curtains or wallpaper can be used to add some flare to your home!
