The “V” shape is a chevron that’s commonly affiliated with architecture, military insignia, and a certain gas station. However, it has now turned into a wonderful fabric pattern. Our favorite way to see them is on women’s dresses! The zig-zag pattern is played up in many colors, but the favorite tends to be in classic black and white.

Argyle

This pattern has always had a type of “academic” reputation. It’s easily identified for it’s overlapping diamond shapes. Argyle is practically synonymous with sweaters and fancy socks, but they’ve easily been incorporated into chic dresses, tights, and other accessories! For both guys and gals, it’s an easy go-to pattern to dress up casual looks or to add a hint of color. With all the geometric trends going around, you can bet the Argyle will be in the mix.

With it’s Persian heritage, the pattern is usually intricately detailed. It’s very floral-like and can be seen anywhere from rugs to silk runway dresses.
