ACCESSORIES REPORT: I Really Wanna Zigazig, Ah!

Ever since the Missoni x Target takeover, it seems that people who weren’t even familiar with the famed Italian knitwear company had to get their hands on the multi-colored zigzag frocks, blouses and even bicycles.

This Fashionista’s Navajo inspired mini skirt, comprised of a mix of zigzags, triangles and other repeating patterns in neutral, earthy hues is ideal for these warm winter days. It's eye-catching with its unique geometric chevron pattern, which has become the “it” print for spring. Paired with a simple black sheer Ellison blouse, subtly checked tights and faded, grunge-inspired booties, the brightly colored and distinctively patterned Lush skirt becomes the focal point of the ensemble.

She accessorizes with my favorite shade of metal, rose gold. While silver and gold have always been the staples for jewelry shades, this refreshing, feminine hue is making its way towards popularity. This Fashionista sports an oversized Michael Kors watch and a bold statement necklace, both with hints of rose gold.

Spotted: Steering away from the straight line and opting for chevron, the spring 2012 ready-to-wear collections of Carven, Christian Dior and Etro dared to be different with bold zigzags in even bolder colors. Whether layering on zigzags for those “man-repelling” Fashionistas, or opting for a statement piece like this Fashionista, chevron can add a fun and flirty twist to any ensemble.
