This quirky trend continues. A huge rage in 2012, Aztec  prints are here to stay. A dash of style all the way from Mexico will surely give your wardrobe that extra edge. Black and white or bright Aztec colours, you can select from a wide range of styles this summer. We tell you how to rock the look.

Aztec pants: You can team these with a neutral shirt like black or white. If you want to experiment, go for a shirt in solid colours. Keep the accessories minimal. You can also team your pants with nude pumps for the oomph factor.

Maxi skirts: Maxi skirt in this uber cool print is all you need to turn heads. You can go for a high waisted maxi skirt and team it with a sheer white shirt. Team this attire with gold Egyptian hoops.  To complete the look, go for pumps or sequined flat ballerinas. A messy nape hugging bun will go best with the look. If you don’t want to wear a maxi, then opt for a short Aztec skirt.

You can  pick one with gold threads. Team this with a black peplum top and golden pumps. A pair of gold triangle earring is all you need to turn heads.  Carry a sequined clutch to complete this look.

Aztec print dresses: A full length or a knee length dress in Aztec print can be worn on any occasion. A short structured dress in the print can be worn for an evening out.

If you are going for a formal event, opt for an Aztec dress in black and white. Team this with solid coloured pumps. If you are wearing a maxi dress then experiment with the accessories. Go for a gold bracelet. To break the monotony you can also opt for a gold waist belt.

Shorts: Go all quirky with this look. Team a pair of casual Aztec shorts with a solid coloured top and flat sandals. Owl earrings or pendant is all you need to complete the look.

Since this look is a little casual, go for a sling bag, instead of a clutch. Make sure that you go crazy with the colours.

If this is too causal for you, don’t fret. For a more glamorous look, team high waisted Aztec print shorts with a sequined top and pumps. Tie your hair in a loose bun. You can also wear a cropped jacket for the uber cool look. Go overboard with the make up. Drama eyes and nude lips are the way to go.

Clutch: If you are into experimenting, then a Aztec print clutch is perfect for you. Wear a solid coloured summer dress and team it with your clutch.

You can also carry it with a plain maxi dress or a simple casual outfit like jeans.

This way you can sport the style without stepping out of your comfort zone.
