Chevron, you're so out, and herringbone, you're oh so in.
Although these two looks are very similar, the recent chevron craze has left somewhat of a bad taste in my mouth lately. I'm love it, but I'm tired of it. See the above illustration for a more detailed view of what makes these two patterns different.
Both patterns are quintessentially European and, in my mind, just scream "apartment in Paris". However, I find the "flow" of the herringbone pattern much more visually pleasing than the sharp lines in chevron.
I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions!
