Spring Trend #2: Tribal Beat  

9 comentarios

Back with more! Today I researched a bit about this tribal trend. This is what the big designers tell us to wear:

I have to say I like this trend better than the safari one. The prints are really nice! But since I can't afford any of these dresses, I'll tell you how to get more or less the tribal look:
First of all you need a nice dress / skirt with a bold & tribal print. This part has to rock, because it is the most important item in the look.
To complete, add some tribal accessories (or, as they say in Fashiontribes, earthy but eyecatching). They say perfect jewelry for the outfit is wooden jewelry. Then, for the finishing touch, a big leather bag, and leather sandals (it seems roman/gladiator sandals are the thing this season).

After looking for a while in Etsy, I found this awesome items that totally give the Tribal Beat.
I hope you like them! (click on the image to see it full size)


Combine some of this lovely items to achieve the tribal look :)

From top to bottom, left to right, the sellers are (with links to the item): nstylevintage, rubistarr, naturalezanica, valhallabrooklyn, jroadman, phunkyphamily, ArtHappens, ileana, kangas, jenkahn, shopgoodgrace, plumdust, seekseekseek, revivalhouse, iheartnorwegianwood, brass, naturalezanica, CMEdesign, raghouseinternational, VenniCaprice

The most difficult thing to find were the sandals! Couldn't find any roman/gladiator ones :(

Well, I hope you like this! Tell me what do you think about the picks, etc, I love to have feedback!

    Tribal is indeed more fun than safari. I think the next one will be the one for me!

    Woww! You've been busy looking for those items on Etsy :) This trend and your 1st trend was my style about 12 years ago, but not anymore now. Wonder, if I'm trendy at all :)

    great Job, I like the whole article, but this thread can be even greater later on the season, because spring just started today, and this is going to be the summer look!! ........ so I think later on, more items can be found at Etsy!
    However, is great, I love it, you did a fantastic job!! We also can make the tribal look just with a plain tunic and a natural looking necklace without going broke!! :-)
