I am definitely a "less is more" kind of girl. A cluttered look, whether it's an outfit or a room, is kind of a pet peeve of mine, and knowing how and when to edit is key. All you really need to do is choose one bold piece and play everything else down. You've probably heard that concept applied to a lot of things... if you're going to wear a bright lip then play down your eyes, or if you're wearing chunky earrings then don't wear a statement necklace, etc etc. And one of my favorite ways to make a statement lately has been anything in a bold chevron print.
I think there's something about a chevron print (stripes work too) that is a great attention grabber, but is still a simple enough print to not feel like you've gone overboard. I've seen this everywhere lately, and I hope it sticks around for a while, because it's a favorite of mine and I think it's lovely.
