Native American styles have always been a favorite of mine. The turquoise jewelry, fringe boots, camel colors and suede tops. American Indians were stylish to the extreme, and they might not have even known it. Or at least they might not have realized the trends they were about to set afire.

With fun geometric cross-stitched patterns in bright colors, woven bags, furry and fringed boots, and oversized belted dresses, Native American fashions are unique and stylish–but still comfortable. Confused about weather to sport the tribal or block styles: join the discussion at style.com for a better look at the two.

Their art and jewelry nests some of the strongest traditions and culture of the Native Americans. Fashions that are centuries old are now hitting the runways, celebrities, and even mainstream and street styles. The trends are perfect to spice up your summer wardrobe in classy, yet fun way. The prints, airy fabrics, and vibrant colors are a great recipe for style, elegance, and that “just threw this together” shabby-chic look.
