fashion favorite friday – chevron

by jani on January 18, 2013

I love that the chevron print is back in style. The Italian fashion house of Missoni was known for featuring chevron in many of its 60s and 70s collections. I wish I still had some of my prints, as they’d be just as in vogue today! The following two sets are chic examples of the chevron zigzag “V” design.

I have incorporated this look in scarves and jewelry. My accessories are from Target. It seems that my latest fashion mantra is:  “You don’t have to break the bank to look stylish”!

The 2012 fall/winter fashion scene has been showing lots of winter white, with black and many shades of slate. We will still be enjoying the bright touches of orange, mustard yellows, crimsons,and shades of bright blues.  Subtle neutral colors will still be in vogue. It should be a lovely fashion season with something for everyone.

In the following set, I chose a classic grey polka dot on winter white J Crew blouse, with a pair of bright crimson jeans, and a small-print geometric blazer. It’s time to pull out our scarves and dust off our boots, ladies. With school just around the corner… chillier days will not be far behind!

The 2012 Summer Games have come to a close… four more years until we all sit together cheering our countrymen and women on to victory and medals. In 2016 we be immersed in everything Brazilian! Rio… now that will be quite the Carnaval!

I don’t know about you, but for me, summer has just flown by! Are you ready for cooler weather? Do you still want to hang onto your summer wardrobe just a little longer? I’d love to hear back!
