It’s that time of year again when we focus on giving thanks. It’s a tradition that goes back centuries to the pilgrims and Native American Indians who gathered together for what we all know as the “first” Thanksgiving dinner. In honor of that tradition, we want to pay homage to the American Indian culture by showing you how to incorporate a native style into your wardrobe.
Turquoise is the color of choice, and it shows up in everything from jewelry to shoes and everything in between. If your style is boho, then you’ve already got a jump on everyone else. The bohemian style already incorporates touches of Native American colors, patterns, and styles in many ways. You can wear your hair in braids, or loose with a traditional, colorful headband in a Native American pattern, or feathers clipped in to hang loosely with your flowing locks. Give your look a final touch with a long flowing dress and leather moccasins.
Going to a dinner party and wearing something classy and sophisticated? Add touches of Native American with turquoise jewelry like earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets with silver or gold accents. Celebrities like Eva Mendez, Meghan Fox, and Hayden Panettiere have all been seen wearing this traditional jewelry at award shows, dinners, and other functions.
The Native American style isn’t just for the girls. Guys can rock the style too! Bring this look to life wearing leather or beaded bracelets and wristbands, or take a lesson from Johnny Depp, the ultimate style icon for men, who rocks the look with a rugged western-style hat with Native American bands circling the brim.
Whether your look is boho, chic, or rugged, you can add touches of Native American designs and accessories that pay tribute to a time-honored culture.
