Pardon my print : Aztec


Tribal prints were huge this season and aztec is one of my absolute favourites!! The root of aztec goes back to Mexico where tribes that made up the Aztec empire wore aztec clothing.  Clearly this erupting trend has evolved and modernized and is now recognized by it's colourful impact that commonly consists of a lot of lines and triangles.  Because this print is so dramatic, keeping the rest of your look simple is the way to go.  Especially if you are wearing a dress your accessories should be very minimal and your look should be finished off with a pair of flats.  If you are wearing the print as a skirt pair it with a simple top, one colour no detail, and this I would recommend a fun accessory piece like a rad thick cuff, a playful necklace or tribal inspired earrings.  Again depending on the style of your piece stick to flats as aztec is usually a more casual style however if you are dressing it up a tad pair your look with the perfect pair of wedges.  I want to know with prints being so popular what your favourite has been this season.

Love the aztec print every time!  So much it was tough to narrow down my inspiration pics.  And can you tell I'm obsessed with the print being worn on the bottom half the most?
