HOT TREND: Chevron Pattern

Some consider them a little crooked. Others think that zig-zag is the way to go. What are they? Chevrons! Simply one of the hottest trends in design right now.  It’s a bold and fun trend that you definitely can’t miss.

Believe it or not, this pattern has been around since approximately 1800 BC, as seen in recovered pottery designs; but it has never been as popular as it is today.  The Chevron Pattern is a beautiful, bold graphic motif that can be found adorning everything from clothing and dishes to home d├ęcor; you name it, it’s out there – in a variety of exciting colour schemes.

EXACTLY WHAT IS THE CHEVRON STRIPE?

The chevron stripe is a zig zag v-shaped pattern. The word is usually used in reference to a badge or insignia used in military or police uniforms. It indicates the rank or length of service. It is also used in heraldry with the chevron design used as the dominant image of the arm. The chevron stripe has been used in architecture, pottery and rock carvings as well.

   


The Chevron design started becoming extremely popular last year, and it's presence has only escalated since then.  It is a pattern that can immediately make any outfit fun, and it looks great on nearly everyone.  Since chevron stripes are so eye-catching, the pattern makes for strong statement pieces.  Have fun with this pattern and do what you do best – wear it with confidence!
