Aztec Modern Interpretation
I decided to add a contemporary Aztec-inspired piece to my wardrobe, a fashion trend that is all about ethnic and tribal elements and not about whole looks where the origins of the look are downplayed! I have always been interested in travelling and diving into different cultures and drawing inspiration from them.
The Aztec look is the perfect Spring style, wearing a piece instantly gives you an uber-cool, street savvy, exotic style without making it look like you’ve tried too hard and instantly evokes dreams of far off vacation destinations.
Contemporary Aztec-inspired pieces use the elements while adding a new twist to keep things modern. I have seen diverse colour plattes that straggle from traditional Aztec shades, as well as an emphasis on geometry or embellishments within the fabric chosen.
If you are looking to make a statement, look for patterned skirts like I did and pair it with a casual white Tee and some nice pumps. I decided to leave my hair natural wavy to emphasize the exotic look

What are your thoughts on the Aztec-inspired trend?

PS: Anna-Lena and I stumbled over the antice flea market which is once a year along the promenade in Überlinge (lake constance) where I found this amazing mauve sequined clutch, so I incoperated it in my pics. Hope you enjoy!

  2. You look so pretty and you're so right about adding the aztec print. It's modern and fun and you pull off the mini skirt perfectly too, but I love how you added all the neutral accessories and details. You look really pretty, hope you went somewhere fun in this outfit.
