Move over Ikat!

I’ve been waiting for the refresh button to be hit on patterns this summer. For awhile, the design and fashion worlds couldn’t divorce themselves from the Ikat print. And while gorgeous, some new prints have been catching my eye these days, including Aztec prints.

I let out an audible gasp when I saw the sweater on the left. I have an affinity for (read: problem with) over-sized, chunky knit sweaters. I cover up out of insecurity instead of wearing more form-fitting pieces that flatter my shape. Insecurities aside, it’s a simple fact that every girl needs a chunky sweater collection along with a stack of books and a hot beverage of choice for the impending fall season. Here are some of my other favorite iterations of Aztec print (the sweater above is hopefully coming back from market with shopredclover.com so watch their website).
