No sooner had we published our story on the season's Navajo trend did Nicole Richie emerge looking flawlessly chic in these Isabel Marant printed skinny jeans ($660), a darker version than what we featured in our story.
That said, did you check out our Navajo-inspired picks?
Isabel Marant, Proenza Schouler, and L.A.M.B.'s Fall collections set the tone for the rich Navajo prints we're after this season — they seem like the perfect antidote to dreary days, and perfect in front of a crackling fire. Bright, bold prints with textural intrigue bring the southwestern theme home on maxi skirts, dresses, jackets, and covetable cape knits. We've scanned the marketplace for the very best of the statement-quality prints, all you have to do is click through to shop and channel the trend for yourself.
FabSugar recently rounded up some Navajo print sweaters to keep you cozy this Winter season, and it's inspired me to look for updates on Southwestern styles for the home. Since the Navajo Nation spans through Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, it makes sense that the designs that have originated from these Southwestern states have taken inspiration from traditional Navajo designs, including the tribe's famous blanket and rug designs. The popular look of kilims and dhurries are a close match to the Navajo designs, and many of the motifs are traveling in a much more modern direction, including the Nanook Chair ($700) from designer Philippe Bestenheider.

It's cyclical. Especially for me. I think the fact that I re-obsess with it every few years means it's a part of my style DNA. With today's modern cuts and fresh details and yesteryears beads and colors, Navajo-esque style feels new again, aka nuevo Navajo. It doesn't take a road trip to New Mexico for me to whip out my beaded earrings and turquoise belt, but a big sky always inspires . . .
