Tribal prints come in all different shapes, patterns and sizes. And no, I’m not talking about that awful tribal tattoo your one friend decided to get. Patterns and color blocking in general have made a major comeback in fashion this year, so it’s no surprise that a combination of the two would be driving fashion-lovers crazy. Personally, I own an adorable, colorful pair of tribal print leggings (which is odd, because I usually hate color). Crazy prints like Aztec prints can be scary to try out, but don’t be afraid! Prints are fun, eye catching and a great way to mix an outfit up. Aztecs may have died out a long time ago, but their tribal patterned trends are making a comeback.
I spotted this Fashionista roaming around downtown on a snowy Sunday. Although I was freezing, she seemed super warm and comfy in her vintage found Aztec styled jacket. Bought without tags, we both couldn’t come up with where this fantastic jacket was found. After some research I found some similar substitutes, although couldn’t find anything exactly the same. I came across this Aztec Patterned ASOS Pattern Coat. It’s much longer than the Fashionista’s I found, however it’s great for taller figures and it’s an all around stunning piece.
Another aspect of this Fashionista’s outfit I loved was how dull all the colors were. Nothing extremely bold stood out, but instead all of these low-key colors mixed together perfectly. Her light blue pastel jeans are from a State College favorite, called Metro. This store is full of the most current trends at extremely reasonable prices, plus there is always a fantastic sale going on. Her combat boots were actually an Ebay find (if you don’t have an Ebay account, go get one right now), and are great for those snowy, slushy days walking to class.
Spotted: Custo Dalmau added hints of drama to his collection by adding separate Aztec tribal pieces to his ready-to-wear fall 2013 show.
