I find that an effortless and effective way to wear spring/summer's Aztec print trend is with a LSD (Little Simple Dress. It's not the 1960s so no need to go there...). Due to the its busy shapes and explosion of colors, the appeal of the print can get lost in translation if you try to make it more complicated than is necessary. There's no need to be overly ambitious with your styling when it comes to aztec. The print flaunts for itself! Plus, a simple dress silhouette is timeless and can counterbalance the fleeting trendiness of the print, stretching the expiration date to infinity and beyond. Fine, I'm exaggerating-but definitely past this season.
An Aztec print dress with a simple cut will take you from day to night all summer long. Cinch it with a cute belt and cross-over bag for a casual but trendy daytime style. Dress it up with killer heels, a color appropriate clutch and layers of jewelry for nighttime fun. Complex print, easy peasy execution.
