Bold prints are huge this season, and designers and Fashionistas alike have found that tribal-inspired prints are the perfect way to break loose from all the floral print and stripes. Donna Karan’s fall runway featured beautiful body con dresses in warm, desert hued tribal prints. J. Mendel added brighter colors and sequins to his abstract tribal print dresses, while Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B. created eye-catching pantsuits in black and white tribal print.
This week’s Fashionista, Caroline Hudson, nailed two trends in one with her high-waist tribal print shorts. She balanced the look perfectly with a simple, coordinating long sleeve T-shirt and cowboy boots, adding the touch of southern flair that is so characteristic of Clemson.
There are so many fun ways to incorporate tribal print into your wardrobe this season. This cozy sweater from PacSun would look great with jeans and boots for a day of classes. For something a little funkier, try these tribal print leggings with black booties and an oversized, solid color blouse for a night out. If you’re not feeling quite that brave, this peplum top would also be great for a night on the town, paired with black skinny jeans, heels, and a bright blazer. If the bold print just isn’t your style, you can still add some tribal-inspired touches to your wardrobe with the right accessories. To add a subtle hint of the print try a graphic cuff like from BCBG, or this gold cuff from LuLu's with an etched chevron print. If you want something with a little more edge, look for one of this season's statement necklaces that has been infused with a little tribal flavor. This gold bib necklace from Forever 21 can be paired with virtually any top to add a little excitement and flair. If you're looking for something more understated, gold and wooden bangles are extremely versatile and add a touch of tribal to any outfit.
