Aztec

Shirt: Urban Outfitters | Jacket: O'Neill (old) | Tank top: American Eagle | Jeans: Madewell | Boots: ASOS

In my last post I told you I'd be sharing more Navajo/Aztec prints on my blog, since I've been inspired by Burberry's AW14 Collection. Here we are! I think it's time to start wearing bright colors again despite it still being pretty chilly in Boston. This Aztec print flannel from Urban Outfitters is the softest and warmest shirt I own, plus I love the bright, bold print. I even went all out in adding another blue and black check pattern jacket on top! One thing to note when pattern mixing (and I know I say this a lot): when mixing patterns on top, keep it simple on the bottom. A pair of black jeans and Chelsea boots is a no-brainer here. It may seem boring compared to the rest of the outfit, but the simplicity of the monotone bottom brings the outfit together and makes me look a little less crazy.

Also, you may have noticed that I "forgot" to button my shirt all the way. I learned this little trick from Drew, since he is the king of layering and button-downs. Sometimes wearing button-down shirts can get monotonous since there's really only one way to wear them without thinking. To change it up, only fasten the first three or four buttons. I actually felt more comfortable only fastening the first three buttons since I felt I had more room to move. Try it out if you're feeling "adventurous."

Happy pattern mixing! Be bold. Be bright. And maybe loosen up those buttons (kinky joke).

  1. I really like how you layered this outfit and mixed the prints/colors together! You wouldn't think that blue plaid would go with a red aztec print, but I like what you did with it.
