It’s a trend that has strutted its way to the forefront of almost every college campus this spring – tribal prints. It was huge on runways for fall '12 and doesn’t seem to be going away. There’s just something slightly eccentric about the Aztec-inspired details that both accent our favorite outfits and take center stage as can’t-miss pieces.
That’s what we’ve got featured on today’s Fashionisto. I saw him strolling around campus twice today before I was able to stop him. His jacket was impossible to miss. I particularly like the subtlety of the colors in this blazer. The tones make it a versatile piece that can be worn over and over without being too overwhelming.
The blazer is Ralph Lauren, perhaps the quintessential designer of western and native inspired clothing. Though I’m not certain whether it’s modern or vintage, it’s definitely got a vintage feel.
