Fringe and feathers, patchwork and ponchos. Native American-inspired prints and textiles are huge for fall. Isabel Marant, a favorite of the fashion pack, sent fringed boots and patchwork garments down her AW11 runway. Of her collection Marant said,
“This season, it all started with a Navajo-print carpet. I toyed around with this pattern, then I started with a feather print, and I realized I was working on a Native American story.”

Love this trend? Here are some ways to recreate the Isabel Marant cool-girl aesthetic with some of my favorite pieces from SINGER22.
Marant's boots might be impossible to track down, but here are some alternatives to recreate the runway look.
Koolaburra Veleta Ankle Boots (above), Sam Edelman Louie Boot, Jeffrey Campbell Sloane Boot, Jeffrey Campbell Houston Boot.
Thrown over a simple outfit, this statement-making outerwear will keep you cozy through winter. Look hip with the slouchy fit, or try belting it for a cinched-in, more tailored effect.
I love the Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Dakota Vest, Vince Sophie Blanket Sweater, or Textile Elizabeth and James Dakota Sweater Jacket (pictured above.)
Fringe trimmed handbags, feather motifs and beaded accessories will tie it all together. Try the Streets Ahead Beaded Bracelet (above), Ember Skye Nicole Bag, and As Is Feather Hair Clip for the best finishing touches.
Keep in mind that a little fringe goes a long way. The key word with this look is restraint. Choose one or two key items and balance it out with a dark wash skinny jean and perfectly fitted henley tee. With our fashion-forward pieces at SINGER22, Navajo-chic has never looked better!
