The Way The West Was Worn

Indian summer in Boston is my favorite time of the year. Some of the days of September begin to feel like fall but the warm weather surprises you and makes for some lovely breezy nights. Speaking of Indian summer, Native American-inspired fashion has been showing up on runways and on fashionable sidewalks. Any of the following additions would suffice for the trend: moccasins, beading, embroidery, American Indian patterns, feathers, headbands, Southwestern jewelry, fringe, vests, bright color pops, and earthy neutrals. Be brave with the trend. (Pun intended). But make sure not to wear more than a couple of these items at a time.  Avoid wearing your hair in any braid-like formations for fear of falling into Pocahontas-costume territory. Now grab your dream catcher and start sitting pretty.
