AZTEC, FANTAZTEC?

Is Aztec the new check?

Whether it be floral, pastel or the frequently favourite check, the summer season is always full of many a colourful print. In contradiction to our usual donning of the check print, this summer, Aztec print seems to be a pioneer in trends across the board. A variety of ages have united in support of the print and as festival season quickly approaches, we are bound to see an influx of wearers both male and female.
A challenge to find a high street store where the print has not made a home for itself this season, would be a near impossible task. If it hasn't already, the print is due to start filtering into the wardrobes of the masses and any time soon you will most probably become a member of fashions most recent tribe. 
Most high street stores have incorporated the print into their summer collections spreading the summer pop party vibe. 
Urban Oufitters have a great grasp on the Aztec trend, here are a some of my favourite items from their collection!

Urban Outfitters Hip flask - £12


Urban Oufitters Grey Aztec drop earrings - £12


Urban Outfitters Zip front bikini - £28


Timex T80 Silver Aztec metal watch - £75


Worland Grey Marl Aztec Tee - £25

Of course, whatever filters down to high street must come influenced from designer. Many designers have taken on the Aztec trend in various forms. 

The Mara Hoffman spring 2012 collection 'Mara Mexicana' is one my preferred aztec inspired designer collections.
