In decades past, tribal prints, beading and native-inspired jewelry were predominantly associated with gypsies and hippies; but the latest crop of tribal style popping up in runways and glossy editorials everywhere is more “exotic glam” than “nomadic wanderer”.
With fabulous ikat prints, colorful embroidery and beading, and earthy tones as benchmarks of this modern-day tribal trend, it’s easy to incorporate it into any summertime ensemble. The trick to this look is to embrace pattern. Whether you do so using a more neutral color palette like khakis, browns and mauves, or whether you go for bolder, brighter tones, this look really evokes an exotic, faraway feel that’s miles away from the average.
This boho-tribal look has long been a favorite of celeb trend-setters like Nicole Richie and Sienna Miller. If you’re a newbie to this trend or just want to dabble in some native style, a good way to add a dash of exotic is through tribal-inspired jewelry, shoes and handbags. Wearing a statement necklace or an intricately ornamented clutch can go a long way to adding interest to even the simplest of outfits.
