Why We Love Chevron

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with chevron-patterned clothing. Sure, I love all stripes – horizontal, vertical or diagonal. I love polka dots, too; they are classic and cute. But, there’s something simple, commanding and instantly attractive about chevron…

It makes me feel taller. Strategically designed chevron patterns with stripes of the right thickness for petites are instantly body-lengthening. A V-neck top or dress instantly elongates the torso and is universally flattering. Place the stripes in opposite directions, and it instantly draws the eye up and down and away from the center.

Chevron has the amazing ability to accentuate your curves, whatever your size. It adds movement and dimension to your bust and hips. The right cut can accentuate your waist and give the illusion of an hourglass shape to a slimmer build. And, if you are curvier, then it adds all the more va-va-voom to your figure.

An expertly tailored chevron piece can be styled for work with a solid color blazer and simple jewelry, and dressed up with glam earrings and strappy heels for dinner. Finish your look with some glossy lip color and bold eye shadow.
