Grab a spear and get perfectly primitive in the tribal trend!This is a great look for playing around with colours and prints..the bigger and bolder the better. There are very few figures that are not flattered by the loose and ladylike styles of the tribal, colour explosion, clothing. You can completely cater this look to accentuate all your positive features and pick colours that will suit you skin town. The materials of tribal clothing are generally light and have plenty of movement so you can breathe easy knowing you will look and feel comfortbale. There is no shortage of aztec and native print dresses on the market including shoestring strap maxis, forgiving beach kaftans or pretty day dress. But if the idea of an all over tribal print dress is a little bit daunting then you can add a touch of indigenous elegance with a printed headscarf just like the lovely Eva Mendes. Or team a plain block colour top with printed leggings or harem pants.
Not surprisingly my favourite aspect of the tribal trend is the jewellery!There is such a wide variety of stuff to choose and because a lot of the accessories are made from threads and beads they are all purse friendly purchases. Native necklaces are easily come by and beaded statement necklace are perfect if you have a a strapless top or dress.If beads arent your thing then you can go for the etched metals and tins which are especially good if you want to go big on your earrings and dress up a simple day dress. Breastplate necklaces are not for the faint hearted but they certainly make a statement and can bring an otherwise dull ensemble to life. If you can put up with the constant jingle jangle of bangles then this look is definitely for you and if not you can always substitute with one large long metal cuff.
Thankfully this is a trend that actually lends itself to flat shoes as strappy sandals are in-keeping with 'desert chic' but thats not to say you can't glam it up with some adorned heels. Feathers,beads and tassels are not just confined to the top half of the look as shown by the example above. Whether you want to be a cheeky chieftain or no-nonsense nomad you can have lots of fun with this wild and wonderful look!
