Feel Fresh Friday: Aztec Prints

        Prints are always a huge summer trend, as they are the easiest way to express your style when it's too hot outside for layers. While florals are a classic, this year designers seem to be inspired by ethnic prints. Taking elements from African and Asian motifs to American southwest and Mexican cultures, the runways were filled with bright colors in abstract designs and geometric patterns. The great thing about the Aztec trend is that it can be adapted to your style in various ways. Here are a few of Renewals tribal-inspired pieces.

The attention-grabbing tribal prints should be paired with subtle accessories. Try wearing shoes and jewelry in neutral and solid colors to dress up your tribal wear.

Dress: Xhiliration, sz.XL; Sandals: Farylrobin, sz. 7;   Purse: Tignanello

If prints aren’t your thing, then you can still indulge in the ethnic / tribal fashion trend by way of accessories. Try using purses or clutches with aztec patterns, or simply wear wooden and tribal-inspired jewelry to dress up your summer staples.
