The chevron, a pattern comprised of Vs and inverted Vs, is a major shape for spring. With The Great Gatsby finally making its way to the silver screen, the roaring 20s and the decade it influenced, the 1970s, will be at the forefront of fashion. Get a head start with the Kai chevron sequin dress by BB Dakota. If subtlety’s more your style, a simple chevron ring–with short, chic nails to match–is a great way to incorporate the shape into your spring wardrobe. Chevron patterns are also on-trend in home decor–novices can try a throw rug; domestic doyennes can roll out a staircase masterpiece with this DIY project.
The graphic chevron pattern looks exquisite when paired with equally stunning accents, that’s why you’ll often see it alongside sunburst mirrors (for the home) or jewelry (for the bod). Keep an eye out for Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow 1960 line on Karmaloop and PLNDR for a perfect companion.
No matter what your canvas, chevron’s a courant–just ask Missoni.
