Tribal Trysts

Tribal trends from all across the globe are finding place in our wardrobes. Turban hats, huge beaded necklaces and feather hair clips are just some of the many high-fashion items that are making waves. Tribal prints similarly, have inspired many designers the last few seasons and continue to do so. The eclectic mix of patterns and use of an unlimited, never-exhausting palette of colors is what makes tribal prints so popular and easy to wear.
These prints can be both in bright and soft, nature inspired colors. You can wear them either with other printed separates or solid colors. Since these prints are so diverse, they can be worn almost everywhere ranging from office meetings to night clubs. Depending on the occasion accessorize with complementing ethnic tribal pieces or simple, sophisticated pieces to strike an impressive contrast!

  1. Avoid horizontal/broad patterns on wider body areas.
  2. If on edge with this trend go for soft monochromatic patterns.
  3. While wearing ethnic patterns to a formal event, pair with neutral, structured accessories.
  4. For a decluttered look, replace multiple tiny patterns with simple, clean prints.

In the pics below, I am wearing a pair of tribal inspired printed trousers with a solid color racer back top in a complementing shade. The geometric pendant is the only piece of jewellery I am wearing with this outfit. The colorful sling bag and neutral wedges complete the look.

  8. It can be one of the most infuriating situations on a cruise ship – finding out that the couple in the cabin next to you paid significantly less for exactly the same getaway. tribal fashion
