Tribal party

Here's an interesting trend: tribal looks. This is definitely not one for everyone, at least at first. It's bold, it's out there, it's a little kooky. But it's fun and fresh. If you have any doubt about that, check out this post over at So Much To Smile About for some gorgeous shots of the trend.

Tribal prints are everywhere, so pick up a fabulous Missoni, Etro or McQueen dress to make the look front and center. Or, if you have your reservations about the trend but you're still want to try it out, you're in luck. There is a wealth of tribal-inspired jewelry to add just a hint of the look to your outfit. Pair any of the pieces from the House of Harlow 1960 tribal collection with a basic black T-shirt and skinny jeans or a simple, black jersey dress and you can totally rock it without overkill. Or for instance, these crazy-expensive Giuseppe Zanotti sandals would look amazing with a black maxi dress.

  1. LOVE these pics... my favorite print for a long time has been ikat. im obsessed!

    may need to make those earrings (and those SHOES!) mine...

  2. I love tribal prints - my fav is that skirt - could see it with a white tee and a great gold necklace...

  3. How nice to see the urban print design. Nice color shade. Looks so different. Different from the regular fashion and trend. But it is too good. If you want a stunning look then choose cropped denim jacket
