Shown with heavy influences of folklore; embroidery, beads, and fringes, the tribal trend is making headlines heading into the spring season. Since it lends itself to the deconstructed, bohemian vibe of the music festivals and carefree outdoor gatherings in the spring season, keep on reading for our style guidelines to incorporate the tribal trend into your spring wardrobe.
Incorporate tribal-inspired accessories into your spring outfits.
If you feel brightly-printed and patterned tribal pieces are not for you, then incorporate tribal-inspired accessories like a fringed necklace, metallic bib necklaces, beaded choker, tribal hat, gypsy tie-band and such to your look to make it pop without being over-the-top-tribal. For spring, fringe can be seen added to everything from the style of boots to necklaces and handbags. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, you may start with a fringed necklace that can make your most classic and basic outfit tribal-inspired. As you can see, you don’t have to look folklore-inspired all the time as pastel colors and neutral shades can be complemented by these tribal hints.
Stick to earthy, neutral palette.
Though the trend is known for its wild, free-spirited, and carefree vibe, tribal is not synonymous with loud. Tribal-inspired pieces can be found in monochromatic or neutral shades that have been inspired by nature itself. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, add some tribal touch to your office looks with an earthy brown skirt and white top paired with a fringed handbag and crisscross boots that will do the tricks for you.
Focus on the tribal motifs.
When styling your spring outfits, let the rich tribal textures and patterns do the talking. You may actually look for tone-on-tone embroidery on your dresses, beaded designs on your skirts, fringe details on your blouses, or even soft tribal embellishments on your tops. Look for quietly embroidered pieces like cotton tunics made from natural linen and cotton with an ease and deconstructed quality about them.
Play with tribal prints and patterns.
Tribal patterns or Ikat prints are a great addition to your spring outfits. While print mixing has been all the rage during the past seasons, let your tribal print items really shine by pairing them with something simple. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, let your tribal-print kimono be the focus of your style by pairing them with an all-black outfit. Or, simply go modern with a colorful tribal print sweater worn with skinny jeans like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu did.
Though the tribal trend may be daunting at first, it can be incorporated to your spring outfits to add some life to your style. By adding a little tribal flair to your spring wardrobe, you’ll look carefree and wild no matter how conservative or adventurous you may be.
