Scared of traditional stripes? Try a chevron print instead. The peaks-and-valleys design is a flawless choice for folks with curves, and there are no rules on how to wear the angular trend, according to Katy Hamilton, owner of Shopgirls Boutique.
“Chevron is an architectural print,” says Hamilton, who credits art deco’s stylish symmetry for inspiring chevron fashions.
“It’s a print for people that are afraid of prints.”
Chevron stripes were a big hit this summer and have staying power thanks to their adaptability. The graphic spiking print can be found on everything from maxi dresses to earrings.
