This Fall, Native American inspired clothing and accessories are taking center stage...and taking stores by storm! Designers have infused this warm and earthy vibe with a fashionable tribute to the style, color and texture of the Southwest. Here are four of our favorite ways to make this look work for you.
1. Sweaters: Whether you embrace this fashion trend wholly, or just dabble in a few key pieces this fall, one of our favorite ways to indulge in the neo-Native vibe is a great sweater. This season's chunky knits and long cardigans are made for the bold patterns and warm colors that go along with this southwestern look. Stick to earth-toned colors and fabrics to make the pieces feel authentic and natural.
2. Accessories: Accessories are the heart of this trend. Go for beaded bags, feathers, and jewelry with tons of colorful accents and wild prints. Adding one amazing piece to the simplest outfit and make it modern and current.
3. Shoes: Just when we thought they couldn't make a cooler way to wear a flat shoe, we have rediscovered the moccasin. This incredibly comfortable and stylish shoe gives new meaning to casual. It is one of the coziest pairs of shoes we have ever worn...no lie!
4. Fringe: Fringe detailing is an amazing and subtle way to work this look. Bags and boots are dripping with fringe this Fall, and can easily be incorporated into your everyday look.
Since this trend surfaced in the Spring and Summer collections, you can easily make your favorite pieces transition into Fall. Add a few layers, a pair of tights, and cooler weather accessories like scarves and fur, and your Native American vibe can take you well through the Winter. Whether you choose just a few key accessories, or wrap yourself in this trend from head to toe, you will be ready for the fashion spotlight!
