Tribal prints were a prominent trend on the fashion runways and so naturally, the trend has hit the streets. Ranging from strong and vibrant graphic prints in various colors to warm, earthy natural accents, these ethnic prints come in all shapes, sizes and designs. The safari inspired pieces are a definite hit and are sure to add a fun twist to any outfit. For an effortless Africana look, style a long maxi dress in a bold tribal print with strappy flats and a sexy metallic belt. Or be A -list celebrity bold by mixing and layering different prints like tribal with plaid or stripes – just remember to keep the rest of the look simple.
As with any other trend, if African prints are not your thing, don’t fret, try accessorizing. Perhaps an oversized tribal scarf or a striking aztec clutch will suit your style. Even better, achieve the look with natural materials such as wooden bangles and beads or a chic raffia tote. Remember to keep everything in moderation and avoid a pattern overload.
