When I think of a chevron, I think of this:
Not of this:
What is a chevron exactly? Glad you asked. I did a little homework and found that it has the shape of a V or an inverted V. If someone is wearing a chevron, it usually indicates that person’s rank in the military–that doesn’t apply here. Putting a chevron on your throw pillow doesn’t mean you stormed the beach at Normandy. It’s just cute and meaningless. But chevrons have been around since 1800 BC, so there were design savvy cavemen out there as well.
If you cannot commit to something as big as a pillow, try some chevron knick knack paddywhacks first. Ease into it. All of the accessories below are from Etsy.
Like I said, everything moderation. This is a great, simple yet, bold trend. Don’t hit your computer or adjust the rabbit ears just yet!
