How to Wear: NEON INDIAN

6 Dec

The only thing better than the current trends of Navajo print (seen at Isabel Marant, Proenza Schouler, and Theodora & Callum) and acid-bright hue-from-heaven chartreuse (seen at Acne, Balmain, Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs) is when someone marries them together in an outfit as gorgeous as this:

Isn’t she lovely? I’m head over heels for Isabel Marant’s use of Navajo-esque prints this season (as seen on the Renell jeans here), but pairing it with such an insanely beautiful colour takes it to a whole new level. Sort of frothing at the mouth over the bag a little bit, too.

Also spotted on Geraldine Saglio (assistant to Emanuelle Alt), with a simple grey tee (bit boring, but I do love a good front-tuck):

Unsurprisingly, I also love this look worn with 30-trillion layers of everything, a la the nordic-iceprincess-hippie-mermaid vibe channelled by Natasha Poly and Sasha Pivarova in Vogue Paris (style by Ms. Alt, shot by Mario Sorrenti):

Unforch, while I do have an ocean and plenty of messed-up-hair to hand, I am neither an Ice-Princess, nor inclined to wearing sheepskin in high summer, as it currently is here in Australia. Thus, I will be punching out my tribal prints with plenty of acid-brights and front-tucks, and probably some flat sandals.

NB. Navajo print is all over the high-street as well, but as yet I’m not convinced. I think the key to shopping this look on a budget is (as always) Etsy, or by splurging on the prints, and saving on the rest. You could also just go on over and suck the life out of the Net-a-Porter sale, like any sensible girl would do. Here’s my picks for this trend (Christmas wishlist, anyone?):
