One of my favorite patterns besides plaid is an aztec pattern and I am not the the only one who feels this way.  This geometric pattern orginated in the southern regions of Mexico in the 13th and 16th centuries. Two seasons ago for his spring 2008 collection Mathew Williamson sent his models down the runway in his aztec patterned designs. Normally this patter is seen in jewerly form but I have noticed that different pieces of clothing are slowly showing signs of this print as well. Nicole Richies clothing line which can be seen at bloomingdales and online are heavily inspired by the Aztecs especially her jewerly collection. For fall this look is good in chunky knits, tights and also skirts. Today's Fashionista chose to sport her tribal inspired dress with black leggings. She is also wearing a pair of flats with a metallic tip. As the temperatures dip I recommend a sweater such as this one. A bandeau skirt like this one looks great with a shirt tucked in and a pair of oxford flats.

Hint:  Want the full aztec look? The traditional colors of dress are red, yellow, blue and the jewelry is usually made from copper and silver.
