ZIGGY ZIGGY ZAG.....




This trend has been around for some time. The chevron print was first introduced with military uniforms and later showing up in clothing apparel from the 1970's. With its zig-zag patterns and fun colors, this type of trend really is one of a kind. I believe that the right chevron pattern can be paired with cardigans, blazers, tights and/or simple accessories. A fashion forward lady can really make a statement with this print without being too flashy.   


Here are some photos of how I coordinated the Chevron style. I took this zig-zag dress and just played around with the colors that personally stood out to me. I focused on purple, mustard, and brown colors that really complement instead of compete with the pattern. I accessorized with a simple bib necklace and a purple head wrap that adds to the look.
 

What are your thoughts about the chevron pattern?














































WHAT I WORE: Banana Republic: Dress I H&M: Cardigan I Forever 21: Booties, Necklace &Tights I Unknown: Head-Wrap I Dooney & Bourke: Satchel Bag
