They have graced runways and stores’ floors for years. Oscar de la Renta turned them into chic dresses in his fall 2013 show. Everything from skirts to leggings to swim suits and even purses have been made from them. They boast colorful palettes and detailed patterns so intricate that you could get lost in them. Nowadays they’re as popular as stripes or plaid. Yes, I’m talking about tribal prints.
Initially manufactured with small imperfections, where the dye seeped through in a series of lines and dots, no two rolls of the fabric turned out the same. By sporting a tribal piece, you can stand out and look like one of a kind too.
I spotted this Fashionista during your typical Sunday study session rocking a tribal print cardigan. I love the comfort she brings to her outfit with an oversized sweater that features batwing sleeves. Seriously, if you could look up “casual chic” in a dictionary, you would find a picture of a batwing sweater. In order to not detract from the cardigan’s bold print, she pairs it with a simple white V-neck and black leggings. Another interesting detail of her outfit is her two-toned brown and black leather boots which give her look an overall rustic feel.
Being so popular, tribal prints to complement the rest of your wardrobe shouldn’t be hard to find. Follow this Fashionista’s example and choose a cardigan paired with leggings. Or try a pair of tribal printed skinny jeans and a button-down. Any way you wear it, you’ll be trendy in tribal.
