I’m loving the fun, geometric Aztec prints that are continuing to pop up on everything from clothes to accessories to home decor this season, and with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I thought now would be a perfect time to spotlight some of the tribal print pieces I’m especially into these days. While some tribal things aren’t exactly my style (I don’t think I could pull this or this off, for example), some of the more subtle choices — or accessories that can add a pop of vibrant color/pattern to a room or an outfit — are right up my alley.
But first, a few quick tips on how best to wear/use this trend:
- The key when it comes to Aztec prints is to balance out the bold print with simple pieces and complementary colors. (This holds true whether you’re adding a piece to your closet or your living room.)
- Don’t mix an Aztec print with another bold print. Any Aztec accessory can easily be paired with a neutral top or jeans or jean shorts for a casual look.
- Pair Aztec shorts or skirts with a shirt color that is dominant in the Aztec print (and vice versa for Aztec tops).
- When an Aztec piece is black and white, consider adding a pop of color to your look by way of a colorful (but solid) sweater, for example.
With that, here are some Aztec pieces that top my list:
I actually already have this bag and adore it. I’m seriously considering buying another one to have on hand to use once the one I have wears out. (And thanks to Target’s awesome low prices, that’s totally a budget-friendly option!)
Definitely within the Aztec trend, but also on the more subtle side, I love these rings as a springtime accessory.
I saw these at Target recently (on clearance!!!) and bought two, even though I currently have no need for them. I just couldn’t pass them up!
Super cute pattern, but the black and white keeps it from getting too crazy.
I love the simple white on the skirt of this dress coupled with the busy, colorful print at the top.
Just a pop of an Aztec accent gives this suit a touch of whimsy.
Gotta love Asos for some affordable, on-trend fashion. (Plus, there’s free shipping both ways. Score!)
These are too fun!
