The weather during the summer is all over the place. Lately, it has been hot and sunny, which is just the way it should be. Hot and sunny is great but it can also be a little hard to dress for when you are trying to keep cool but don’t want to feel sticky and sweaty all day. The easiest way to stay cool is to wear a dress. They’re simple, fun and can easily transition from day to night. This Fashionista is wearing a simple black maxi dress that can be worn without the scarf to run errands in or just hang out in. However, by adding the scarf, she completely transformed the look from day to night. Her look could be worn out to dinner with friends or on a date.
This Fashionista incorporated an Aztec patterned scarf into her look, which is a trend that has been showing up everywhere lately. It is completely versatile and I have been seeing it around campus and in my home town. The key to rocking the Aztec trend is making sure the rest of your outfit is relatively simple. Her dress is black, which allows the scarf to stand on its own. She could have even added a colorful Aztec print scarf to help make the outfit more playful and fun.
Aztec print scarves can be worn with almost anything and can help vamp up looks that need a little bit of a pattern. Don’t be afraid to buy other clothing that incorporates the Aztec pattern; skirts and dresses are fun ways to play around with the print. If you don’t want to go that bold, a cardigan is also a good addition because it allows you to keep the rest of your look simple and let the pattern shine!
