Vintage Wrangle Aztec Shirt, Topshop 86 Tee, American Apparel Afrika Bodycon Dress, Topshop Eagle Necklace, Topshop Avenger Boots, Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick no 107
When I first moved to London I went Aztec crazy - shirts, shorts, dresses, socks.. if it was aztec I'd have it. But just as if you ate the same meal everyday, you start to get a bit sick and a bit bored, and I've been aztec clean for over a year! But this summer, Aztec is back with a new look. Taking an urban influence, the new way to wear new trend Safari is by mixing your typical aztecs with animal motifs, sportswear, sheer fabrics and two pieces
This fresh way to wear has inspired me to dig out my favourite Aztec pieces and have a bit of a play with outfits without making me feel I was in my teens again!
The American Apparel dress has been a staple in my going out wardrobe since I was 17 and is probably the one aztec item I have not flung in a dark hole somewhere. The bodycon and long sleeves compliment the oversized 86 tee perfectly, a look I've tried with the spotty dress from school daze too and now cannot stop wearing! To inject some colour, pattern and another layer of interest into the look, I have layered this gorgeous shirt I found in either Beyond Retro or Rokit a couple of years ago which has also kept me pretty warm! As a summer trend, getting this to look right in these freezing wintery days can be a challenge but animal motif sweatshirts inspired by Kenzo are the perfect way to feel summery in the snow :)
