Aztec Prints

4 Jul

When I visited Vietnam back in February and roped Robbie into haggling for gorgeous bag, I had no idea that I was unwittingly buying a ‘fashionable’ piece of clothing…


It was only upon returning to the UK that I saw Aztec prints everywhere. I got my first taste of the print when I tried out some New Look Inspire pieces – and I really loved the print! And so when I spied Beth from Butterfly rocking a gorgeous Aztec midi dress, I just had to have it…


The dress is currently available in size 16/18, 20/22 and 24/26. I went for a size 16/18 and it arrived in no time at all…


The dress is made of a stretchy polyester, and is finished with a gold foil. It stretched to accommodate my shape, and finished just on the knee. The horizontal pattern felt very flattering, busting that myth that it adds pounds to the figure! I loved how many colours were in the dress and how well it would lend itself to a number of accessories.


The scoop neckline finishes high enough to conceal cleavage, but low enough to still be flattering. The capped sleeves felt comfortable over my arms and didn’t restrict them.


The dress didn’t quite nip me in at the waist like I would have liked, and so I naturally added a thrifted belt. I also paired this dress with my Freya Deco, my Maidenform shapewear and my shoes from M&S that are now several seasons old.

What do you think of the Aztec print trend? Do you own any Aztec print pieces or would you like too?

    I love this dress and I want it! I am hoping I can get it in the US. It looks great on you. The Aztec look is in! I wouldn’t mind having leggings in a similar print.

    Aztec isn’t really appealing to me this season, but it’s perhaps because I remember having a few pieces from the late 80’s/early 90’s when it was a trend. The dress looks absolutely stunning on you though.

    I’m always a bit scared of prints, but you rock it and I think I could too. Maybe!

    I have just bought this dress in the green and blue colours. Being a size 18/20 I was never sure that I could pull off a dress like this. I saw it on you and I instantly wanted it and know I could pull it off too. I am in love with this dress, I now know with the right patterns and styling I can pull off this style! Thanks for being such an inspiration George!
