There’s no escaping the tribal tidal wave that has flood the streets and retail stores this season. The fun and eccentric prints give the perfect pop to a summer outfit. When I saw the increasing popularity of this trend last spring I couldn’t help but to flashback to the younger years when our wrists were stacked with colorful friendship bracelets. Now, nearly ten years later, I’m scrambling through old jewelry boxes looking for my tribal fix.
I spotted this week’s Fashionista on her way to grab a bite to eat and couldn’t get over her use of printed accessories. The tribal printed bucket bag and penny loafers paired with her tee and jersey skirt gave her an overall cool, casual look. Naturally, I was curious as to where she found such unique pieces. Turns out, this Fashionista recently traveled to Nicaragua and snagged these great accessories while there. It is always great to have one-of-a-kind items like these in your possession. However, I’ve found a super on trend tribal bag from J.Crew that is ideal for an on-the-go day. Another option I came across is from Nasty Gal; this bucket bag is equally trendy and more college budget friendly. As for the shoes, check out these espadrille loafers covered with bright tribal designs.
The great thing about this trend is that you have many options on how to pull it off. This Fashionista dove right in and accessorized with bold eye-catching pieces. If you’re still dipping your toes into the tribal water, reverting back to stacking your old friendship bracelets is still a great option if you’re lucky enough to find them.
