“Indigenous Style” means being able to rock some traditional moccasins or some beaded jewellery by incorporating it into everyday fashion! Whether you are just going to school, going to work, go to an event, or having a girls night out. You are able to show something off that represents who you are, add to your personality, and be fashionably different at the same time. I love to rock my mocs at school with a cute dress and tights, it’s my favourite go to fall fashion look!
