Definition: Chevron print consists of inverted “v” shapes. This particular shape has been found in many forms of ancient art, such as pottery and stone carvings. In history, the chevron figure is usually associated with the emblems and symbols used in military or police uniforms.

This pattern has an especially retro vibe, and was especially popular in the '70s. In recent years, chevron has made an enormous comeback. While chevron has a mod feel to it, the print can be seen in today’s most chic outfits. You can easily find chevron print on anything, from skirts to handbags. Metal jewelry can also be found in chevron metal shapes, creating a trendy and geometric look.
