Looking Back, Looking Forward

There is just something about a chevron print that takes me back to the 70s.  According to a Wikipedia entry, though, the inverted v-shaped pattern dates back to as early as 1800 BC.

I’ve been closely watching Old Navy’s chevron tops and yesterday I decided to head to a store to purchase one of them since it had been marked down from $25 to $19.  When I got to the store, though, the tops were on sale for just $10!  Talk about a consumer surplus!

This $10 chevron top is so chic and versatile.  Here’s how I’d wear it to three different affairs:  Work, a party, and a casual outing.

1. Work.  Skirt: The Limited; Sash: Ann Taylor

2. Party.   Skirt:  c/o LOFT

3. Casual.  Leggings: Max Studio via Marshalls; Belt: BR Factory

If you’ve also been eying the Old Navy chevron-print raglan top, I just purchased it in store yesterday.  So, the in-store price is likely still only $10.

    I have that top in the green colorway and LOVE it! I've worn it with a black pencil skirt and skinny slacks for work, and black jeans with heels for a night out. I've been wanting to grab that black and white colorway but was waiting for a markdown (I don't wear a lot of black because of my pale coloring) – this looks like a great time to buy! I know where I'll be heading on my lunch break tomorrow!

    @Pretty Dark Girl Style: Thanks! I hope you found some goodies. I'm really impressed by the tops in ON right now.

    @Fifth N Sixth Closet: Thanks! This fab graphic top makes it so easy.

    @High Heels and Good Meals: Ha! I was stepping through the mall feeling good when I wore it that way.

    @Sincerely Mally: Absolutely. Clothes that work overtime are the best deals ever.
