Today I finally spent my gift card to Francesca’s. I’ve had it since my birthday, mind you, so it was time to get rid of it. As I was browsing the shop, I noticed just how common the Aztec/tribal trend has become. While I love this style, and even purchased a few tops with Aztec prints, there is a “right” and a “wrong” way to wear this print. For example, the wrong way to wear Aztec includes:
Examples of the right way to pull off the Aztec look include:
As you can see from the “right” examples, pairing the Aztec print with a neutral solid works best. If you’re reluctant to try this trend, pair simple black and white prints with black skinny pants. Try a red and white print with jeans. Start with a sweater or cardigan and go from there. Before you know it you’ll love this trend as much as I do!
As always, here are some affordable Aztec pieces to add to your wardrobe.
please note that the following are from JenDaisy Boutique, not Karisma (as shown in the tab of my iPhone pic).

If you are not local, I would definitely recommend checking out the smaller boutiques in your area. Both Karisma and Dottie Couture Boutiques ship their clothing. I’m not sure of JenDaisy Boutique, but I bet they do as well. Don’t be afraid to add these tribal pieces to your wardrobe; if done correctly, this trend will definitely get you lots of compliments!
Do you think you’ll wear Aztec/tribal prints?
