ALL IN THE DETAILS: Tribal Twist

Tribal print has been in for quite some time now and it doesn’t look like it’ll be leaving anytime soon. But with a pattern this chic, who’s complaining? When the weather in Oregon decides to give us a break from the rain, the umbrellas and rain boots disappear and the trendy pieces are brought out. With sun comes flouncy dresses and this Fashionista was rocking her own twist to the everlasting tribal trend.

This Fashionista caught my eye with her put together outfit, styling everything flawlessly from her hair to her shoes. What really grabbed my attention was the vibrant Aztec pattern of her dress, which had a unique mesh cutout through the bottom and one across the neckline. The geometric shapes that lined her dress came in fruity hues like tangerine and deeper ones like classic blue, two colors that are some of the trendiest this year according to Pantone. The fluidity of her dress added to the earthy, tribal feel, and she polished up what could’ve been a more bohemian look with gold accessories.

Her watch and simple gold chain bracelet added a touch of class and helped modernize the tribal print. While many people play up the tribal vibe, this Fashionista did her own take on it and mixed different styles to achieve a new, authentic look. To finish off accessorizing, she wore earrings that sparkled in the spring sun and a pair of gladiator sandals. These shoes (along with her perfectly polished pedicure!) kept the original tone of the dress but added to her classy twist with gold studs down the middle.

How To: It’s easy to style tribal because there are so many options. Whether it’s tribal skirts, dresses, crop tops, shorts or tank tops, it’s easy to find a style you like to flaunt this pattern. Choosing a tribal crop top and pairing it with a cute skirt or high-waisted pair of jeans or shorts gives you endless choices. A simple tribal dress like this one is also a fun way to incorporate this lively pattern in. Is tribal a bit too bold for your taste?
