Get the Look: Aztec Trend

Aztec prints have taken the fashion world by storm over 2012. If you haven’t tried this fun trend yet, now is the time! Here are three tips for rocking these stunning South American prints.

1. Focus on one item at a time – choose one key garment with an Aztec print, and compliment with plain items in a neutral colour like black, white or brown. Aztec print is really bold and busy, and often very colourful – so it’s best to keep the rest of your outfit simple. One idea for sartorial success is to pair Aztec print leggings with a plain boxy tee, minimal jewellery and pumps.

2. For an easy day-to-night look, invest in a cute Aztec print dress. Wear it with wedges and a geometric necklace during the day, then throw on some heels and  a plain black blazer for an evening event.

3. Take it to the next level with Aztec nail art! Painting your nails with Aztec patterns is actually easier than you’d think. View this Aztec nail art Pinterest board for some ideas.
