Style Me: Tribal

Over the past seasons,i.e 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 , designers have taken inspiration from the likes of Africa and South & Central America. With this we've seen the introduction of large abstract prints, bold accessories, and bright, beautiful colour. From the runways of New York to Paris and designers like Louis Vuitton in 2009 to L.A.M.B in 2011.

How do I wear this? 
Accessories are definitely the simplest and most cost effective way of doing this. Adding a statement necklace, bracelet or earrings is a super simple way of embodying this look. Even just adding one of these pieces to a white tee and jeans can make a look.

If you're willing to take more of a risk with tribal there are amazing prints you can find on skirts, dresses and even shoes! Pairing them with nuetrals- black, nude, white- is probably the safest way to go, but you can usually pull colours that are already in the print and wear those.
