Spring/Summer 2011: Navajo Trend As Seen On Vanessa Hudgens At Coachella

Submitted by on Wednesday, 11 May 2011 | No Comment

One of the hottest trends popping up this season has to be the Native American inspired Navajo theme. Think fringed t shirts, colourful prints and feathered jewellery creating a relaxed hippy feel with a twist.

One celebrity that has embraced this trend in a big way is High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens who was spotted at this year’s Coachella festival in numerous looks channeling the Navajo theme.

Vanessa has the look down T, effortlessly rocking crop tops, beaded necklaces, frayed denim shorts and sheer maxi skirts with cross body bags. Her natural waves and perfected peace sign complete the hippy feel, along with some ultra cool sunglasses.

We’ve picked out a selection of our favourite pieces to wear from the Navajo trend this Summer.

Patterned Tops

Go for t shirts with bold Navajo prints to stand out from the crowd. If you want to bare a bit of flesh, go for a cropped or fringed version and team with a simple maxi skirt or denim shorts.

Frayed Shorts

These are the perfect wardrobe staple for summer and are always bang on trend every year, but this summer they are even bigger than ever. Teamed with the fringed T-shirts as seen above, these are the ultimate in festival cool. Go for a super short pair with plenty of fringing and frays for a more worn look.


Whether it be a mini skirt or a maxi, skirts are big in the Navajo trend. Prints are perfect to wear with plain tees and vests, whereas the more simple designs will work well with the bold Navajo print T shirts. We love the fringed maxi!


We’re not quite as brave as vanessa, who went barefoot at Coachella, so if you’re like us, you’ll want some gorgeous footwear to team with your Navajo fashion. We love beaded gladiator sandals with aztec style pattern detail. Flats are best for this natural, hippy style, so steer clear of heels!


Finally, to finish the look off, go for Native American inspired accessories such as delicate feathered earrings, fringed cross body bags and round lens sunglasses for an effortlessly stylish outfit.
