If you are still wondering about the Native American influence on the fashion scene then all you need to do is look at stylish hippie casual outfits to know how profound this effect is.
Here Are Some Of The Fashion Influences That Elements Of Native American Designs Have On Styling:
Beads: One of the mainstays of fashion is the use of beads not only in clothing but also for bags, accessories and hair dos not to mention jewelry. Beads can be a charming addition to any dress or purse that you choose to wear or carry and this has been one of the main contributions of Native American influence.
Fringes: Another input from Native American designs is that of the addition of all those sexy fringes that are added to dresses, purses, ponchos, shoes, hats and many other things that are part of fashion. There is no doubt that the addition of fringes does add a touch of whimsy and cuteness to an otherwise somber outfit look festive.
Feathers: While we tend to use feathers with a bit of caution, there is no doubt that feathers do have an important place in the world of fashion and here we can see the Native American influence. When you look at Native American designs you will realize that they use feathers but not in a frivolous way but with a lot of dignity and insignificance.
Leather straps: Another important contribution of Native American design in the world of fashion comes in the form of leather strips that are used in many fashionable outfits today. The use of leather strips and straps combined with beads and feathers is a familiar motif that runs through Native American designs and this takes style and fashion to the next level.
Geometrical designs: Another influence of Native American design in fashion is the use of tie and dye kind of designs that seem to have a geometrical charm all its own. Added to this Native American designs carry a distinct pattern with them that is pretty much typical.
When you get to think of it many elements of Native American designs have been part of the fashion scene since the hippie days, maybe even earlier. This is because Native American design elements have a lot to do with their culture that is deeply entrenched in nature. We cannot think of anybody more spectacular than Mother Nature when it comes to color and design. It is this very element that has been adapted in the way Native Americans dress. They seem to celebrate nature with every bit of clothing while keeping things like hierarchy in the tribe and natural progression of things in mind.
If you feel that, you need to adopt some elements of Native American fashions in your wardrobe, then do so with a regard to the rich culture embedded in these design elements. You need to know the design as well as deeper connotations of each element that you have taken on from this proud and rich culture.
