Question: How can I rock the tribal fashion trend?
Answer: Tribal is ruling the fashion scene: Donna Karan and the brothers Dean and Dan from Dsquared² were inspired by safari trips, Pucci presented beaded heels and clutches, not to mention Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli created breathtaking crafted gowns for Valentino. The catwalks were full of brightly colored patterns, rich embroideries, feathers and other pieces with a handmade feel in plenty of textures. This trend takes elements and motifs from different cultures around the globe, gathering prints from the Aztecs and Incas, among others. Here are some tips to bring that global trotter spirit into your everyday outfits:
The tribal cover-up: You know when you need to piece together an outfit before class, but you feel as though your creative juices aren’t flowing yet? A cardigan is an effortless solution when you don’t know what to wear. Choose a tribal print cardigan and pair it with your favorite boots.
The tribal embellished skirt: For a polished take on the ethnic print trend, combine a button-up blouse with a graphic tribal print skirt. Finish the look with a gold necklace and pumps.
Tall gladiators: If you’ve been thinking about purchasing some knee-high sandals for a while but think they might be too much, let me tell you: If you aren’t having fun with fashion, then you aren’t doing it right! So be fearless — they look sweet and feminine with flowy dresses and make the perfect relaxed look for a day out in the park when paired with distressed shorts.
Fringed bag: Bring on the ethnic vibe with an earthy-toned fringe bag.
Ethnic inspired jewelry: It’s all about bold pieces in geometric shapes and colorful beads. Let’s face it: a beaded tribal-inspired necklace will make you stand out. Or pick an aged look like this antique-esque aztec-etched ring.
Fedoras: Protect yourself from the sun with a panama hat with a tribal touch. After all, they were featured in most of the looks for the Dsquared² Resort collection.
