The New Native

by Amanda Bedgood

Aztec-inspired prints and earth tones for daywear

Native inspired pieces are one of the easiest ways to take a neutral ensemble to a trend worthy place. An all black outfit with a sweater like the rust with black and white pick from Shoe La La is instant drama. And if you're feeling fearless try a brown boot with the black (say 'yes yes yes' to black and brown) and layers of long necklaces.

A cool bag like the leather trimmed one we found at Hemline is perfect for everyday. Pair it with long slouchy cardis, rusty cords or distressed denim for a cool girl vibe. Add some moto boots for an eclectic downtown look.

And then there are the printed pants. This neutral pair from Vanessa V. is a little bit wild without being too loud. We're loving how the ladies at the boutique styled it with other neutral pieces on our own IND Style winner Crystall Coroy. They kept it neutral with basic colored pieces and, yet, utterly on trend with that fantastic hat (you know how I love a good hat).
