It’s no secret that tribal print has been a trend dominating campuses everywhere. While I am a frequent participant in the trend, I can’t deny that it is getting a little tired. Dare I say, predictable? So to mix it up a bit, I find myself searching out different prints and patterns. Luckily, they aren’t too hard to find.
This week’s featured Fashionista sports an adorable, preppy coral pair of shorts in a chic geometric pattern—a refreshing alternative from the typical tribal. She pairs her shorts with a chambray button down and a pair of camel colored wedges. She completes the look by putting soft waves in her long hair and primping her pout with some red lipstick.
If you’re inspired by this Fashionista to trade in your tribal print pieces for something new, try a similar pair of geometric shorts or a pair of paisley patterned harem pants—a recent addition to my own closet. I’ve also been quite smitten with the quirky patterns, like chili peppers and lip prints. Being that it’s spring, it goes without saying you can never going wrong with a good floral pattern.
Pair any funky print with a solid neutral or complementary color, if you’re a tame Fashionista/o. If you’re a little bolder, mix two funky patterns with each other. It seems that most people are beginning to consider leopard print a neutral, since you can find it in almost any and every closet. So if you’re new to mixing patterns, that could be a great place to start.
