Fashion Tip: Aztec prints – Getting fashionably tribal

Fashion Tip

If you are the kind that is crazy about wearing print, then you definitely have to try out the latest print trend, the Aztec! This tribal and very gorgeous print gives you an ethnic and very polished look, if balanced well, with the rest of the items in your outfit.

The Aztec print, can be worn on body con dresses, pants, skirts, cropped tops, bags, and even shorts. So this means you have a wide range to choose from. You can decide whether you want to accessorise with the print, or to have it on you dress.

The tricky part about wearing this trendy print, is that it’s very colourful, so it becomes quite tricky to balance it with other items in your outfit.

The numerous patterns created with this kind of print, will require you to keep the other items in your outfit, very neutral.

For instance, if you choose to wear a pair of printed shorts, then you can complete this look with a plain white tee.

If you are wearing an Aztec printed body con dress, then you can have on a colourful pair of heels, preferably, in one of the colours in your printed dress. You can also choose to add a tailored blazer, in case of bad weather. After all, bad weather is no excuse for ruining a nice dress with an unflattering sweater, or jacket.

If you wear a monochrome Aztec print cropped top, then you can pair it with a pair of denim shorts, and throw on a statement pendant, or chain, preferably in gold, to add some sparkle to your outfit.
