MCLV Style: Herringbone

Herringbone is a twill fabric with a distinct v-shaped weave. It’s a classic cloth and pattern that’s been around since ancient Rome. It’s been popular for suiting and gone in and out of vogue over the years in the women’s wear arena.

I’m a long-time fan of herringbone and have seen great iterations of it on the sidewalks as well as the runways in recent seasons. From Emily Ratajkowski’s killer harringbone oversized overcoat to Balenciaga’s all powerful power suits. One of the things that’s so great about this fabric is its never-ending versatility. From accessories to outerwear to male and female suiting essentials, it can make a chic addition to any wardrobe. It can also go easily from classic and retro-inspired to edgy and eye-catching at a designer’s whim.

I fell head-over-heels for this timeless little shift from Amour Vert, the question was how to make the modern-meets-mod frock sing. After playing a little bit of dress-up, I decided that I liked a classic but contemporary take with tights and booties.
