The tribal and ethnic style craze is making a lasting impression in the western fashion world. This trend is inspired from different cultures, creating an overall unique look from evening gowns to accessories. These items seem to contain colorful graphics, making them fun and very expressive. Today’s Fashionista is wearing a tribal inspired outfit, but is taking a more neutral approach.
This Fashionista’s Native American inspired outfit was perfect for taking a stroll in the park right near Stony Brook’s campus. She had an overall summer casual look, wearing high-waisted shorts and a tank top. Her tribal accessories, including a suede vest from American Eagle, a feather belt from Francesca’s and a tribal necklace from H&M added the finishing touches to this her look.
The silver necklace is bold and expressive, and contributes to her individualized look. To continue the tribal theme, this necklace could also be worn with printed pants and a basic colored shirt. Another Native American inspired necklace can be found here from Forever 21. Urban Outfitters carries the Fiji Beaded Bib Necklace, inspired from a different culture and would go great with a summer sundress topped with a vest!
While this Fashionista’s suede vest gives a Native American feel to the outfit, vests are very common this summer! This lace vest from Urban Outfitters could add more of a 1970s hippie feel when paired with high-waisted shorts and a crochet top. A vest can also be used to make your look more rugged and edgy. Try this vest from TOBI to achieve that look!
Spotted: Armani Privé dressed his model in a beaded vest in the spring 2013 couture collection. The model looked glamorous and was also wearing a dress with pants underneath. This chic look took a more edgy appeal with the vest!
