Trend Alert | Going Tribal

While the tribal trend isn’t new (everything in fashion is cyclical), it’s hot this season. Dresses, shoes, handbags, jewelry, your choice: whether you like your prints in muted or bold colors, this is probably the easiest trend to incorporate into your wardrobe. 

To keep the look youthful, invest in pieces that are modern in cut; unless it’s a flowy skirt, you don’t want pieces that are too big (you don’t want to look like you’re playing dress up in your mom’s clothes).

Want to go with BCBG’s Silk Crop Pants? Pair with a fitted black or white tank, platform heels, chunky bracelets, and (matted) gold hoops. Opted for the Tracy Reese dress, but still feeling a little overpowered by the print? Pair with a lightweight, short cardigan in a complimentary color to balance things out.

Top Tips:

Unless you’re a mix master, only do one trendy piece at a time (there’s nothing worse than looking like an accessories closet exploded on you).

Natural accents (think woven belts, wood platforms, straw bags) go great with this look. Easily tone down a bold print with neutrals. You can still get the look but remain true to your own style.
