Trending Tuesday: #summeraztec

If the world of Alicia was the internet, aztec would totally be trending.  Aztec prints have been in for a hot minute but I really just couldn’t get into them at first because it just was a 90’s flashback and not in a good way.  I’m talking hammer pants in aztec prints, kind of flashback.  Like all old trends made new again, the trend came back modernized.  I just had to wait for the right inspiration… or pinspiration!  Here’s a few favorite aztec pinspiration!  (and check out more on my pinterest board Summer Aztec)

I dabbled with some aztec influence this winter (as seen here) but the print fits summer so much better!  Its fun, playful and colorful, everything a good summer trend needs to be.  For me personally I’m loving the trend glitzed up and in more fun colors, not the dusty dessert shades.  Which is why these mark. Aztec Empire shorts ($30) were the perfect pick for me to start with.  I love the colors and the print, while a little 90’s-esq, its modernized.  I’ve been fully pinspired so this week see how I styled these shorts 4 different ways:  casual, fun, dressed up and for going out!
