Style Advice of the Week

Inspired by a culmination of ancient civilizations, the tribal fad has uprooted the historical origins of natives across the globe. The Inca, Mayan, Aztec, Navajo, Cherokee and Apache have all influenced this modern craze. The pre-Columbian and indigenous American peoples would definitely approve of their designs of ponchos and cloaks that are now sheathing beloved sweaters and etching the sides of edgy combat boots.

The striking motifs that have flooded the shop windows this summer are surely carrying into the fall and will warm us in the winter. Once just tanks, shorts and dresses, but now cardigans, leggings and scarves are available to embellish ourselves with. Due to its prominent nature, the geometric style quickly becomes a praiseworthy statement piece to the day’s outfit.

This week’s Fashionista certainly admired the popular trend. Her impactful sweater, exhibiting such a rustic pattern, is the centerpiece of her ensemble. Completing the look with her studded boots, this creation is a work of primordial art. Any outfit that permits the comfort of standard leggings without having to sacrifice a bit of chicness is worthy of commendation.

During your next shopping spree at the mall, do not dare leave without investing in a tribal print garment. Establishing one focal point for your outfit always generates an exemplary look that is excellently simple, and this valiant pattern irrefutably deserves that spotlight. Follow this Fashionista’s lead and be effortlessly bold. Forget the polka-dots and florals because this season, graphics are stealing our full attention.
