This pattern has been around for years, used in fashion and home décor, so it's timeless.

There's a handy hook for hanging, and the straps are adjustable.

Celebrities love chevron!

How To Know What Is Currently In Style

Are you wondering how to know what's currently "in," such as the chevron pattern?

There are several ways to follow fashion and keep up with what is in style.

One, you could follow the annual New York Fashion Week show where top designers unveil their latest designs. If you can't be there in person, watch online!

Or, read the Wall Street Journal "Life & Culture" section. There you can find the article on NY Fashion Week to see this years' fashion trends.

Two, read fashion magazines such as Vogue, Elle, InStyle, Marie Claire and W. This will give you a feel for the newest trend. Don't be slavish to what they tell you to wear, though. Develop your own style and incorporate items you like into your wardrobe. It's easy to change out a scarf or handbag to reflect the latest fashion rather than trying to buy all the skirts and dresses you see in the magazines.

Three, read books about fashion. You'll gain wisdom about clothing and fashion, and so you'll be armed with knowledge when you spend your hard-earned money at the store.

You may be a true fashionista who wants to wear the latest fashion, or your style is vintage designer couture, or perhaps you wear the classics that never go out of style. Fashion trends come and go, so keep up-to-date and you won't be out-of-date!

Interesting hub. Chevron is a very nice design, not something I would wear.

I think the kids will love it in a backpack.
