The Navajo trend is one of the most striking to come out of the last year in fashion. With textured pieces, lots of iconic patterns and tons of stripes and colour, the look is a throwback to campfires, the Painted Desert and stark Native American landscapes.
Think clear sky at sunset, vivid orange, dusty red and silky black. These are the colours that form the cornerstone of this inspired look. Add prints like stripes, cubes and diamonds and you’ll get the idea. The look brings to mind images of fire, desert mirages bright, sparse oasis flowers. Pieces in this style work best in rich texture and as statement pieces with a lot of character and detail.
It’s a great look for accessories – scarves, bags and belts with this pattern are an instant outfit update and will work with any colour or style. Woven bracelets, blanket-style coats and flowing maxi dresses are another great way to pull off this style. Accessories with tassels are a subtle but pretty way to carry off this look.
You can get this look at LEGiT. Merchandise is available between 20th November and 30th of December 2011.
