One of the big looks of the past few seasons has been the use of chevron prints, and this is set to continue through the upcoming spring 2015 season, if the designer fashion shows are anything to go by! The chevron print can be worn in a number of ways, for example in a bold two colour design that forms one large set of chevrons on a skirt, dress or top, drawing the eye downwards and creating the illusion of a leaner, taller shape, or smaller chevrons forming a kind of zig zag pattern that makes a more flattering and interesting alternative to horizontal stripes.
Chevron dresses are going to be in all the stores for spring 2015, so whatever your style or size, you can find one in a cut and colour that suits your body and your taste. From chevron maxis in fun, contrasting colours that give an almost retro look, through to bold black and white chevrons in short, tunic styles, there is going to be the perfect chevron dress for you out there this spring, so once you’ve found it, all you need to do is style it with the perfect accessories!
Watches and Jewellery
As a fairly bold print, the chevron looks best when worn with accessories that are not too ornate. Watches should be chosen with plain metal or leather straps, and minimalist faces – this always looks better with geometric prints, and the chevron is no exception. For jewellery, stay away from things with lots of fuss and dangly charms, instead opting for chunky pieces in materials that complement the colours of your dress. Consider silver metals with black and white, or plastic in black, white or a bold accent colour. With richer multi-coloured chevron dresses, wood and leather can look good, but again, go for simple shapes and chunky pieces rather than anything fine or elaborate in its design.
Shoes should also be kept plain, letting the chevron do all the work as far as pattern goes on your outfit. The style of shoe really depends on the cut of dress and the occasion – maxi chevron dresses can be worn with flip flops or less delicate sandals for day, then dressed up with wedges or kitten heels for night. Short chevron dresses will always look great with classic heels, but can also look good with ankle boots or ballet flats.
The boldness of a chevron print dwarfs small, dainty bags, so this is the time to bring out that statement oversized bag, or go with a blocky clutch with a bold, chunky buckle for evening.
Accessorizing this spring’s stylish dresses is actually very simple as long as you keep in mind that this kind of angular, striking pattern is not a good match for anything delicate or elaborate. Keep accessories on the large side and bold and simple in design, and you can’t really go wrong when you are styling your favourite spring 2015 chevron dress.
