How to wear the tribal trend

Tribal prints have been a mainstay of the catwalk and fashion weeks for a while now, and the trend shows no sign of abating. With a free-spirited feel, the tribal trend and its associated bold prints will feature in this coming season. If the phrase “bold prints” makes you want to run and hide, fear not! Here are five ways to rock the tribal trend, starting with accessories to add a tribal accent to your outfit and working up to full-on tribal chic.


If you just want to dip your toe into the tribal trend, get yourself a tribal printed bag. An evening clutch or a daytime tote will add a bold print to your outfit without the fear factor. Accessories is a broad term, of course. You can also add a tribal twist with jewellery or a scarf.

Skirts and shorts

Whether you’re showing off your fabulous legs in the summer or you’re layering over tights in the winter, shorts and skirts are timeless garments that work well on many body types. Invest in a skirt or pair of shorts in a tribal print, and turn up the boldness. In summer, the look is bright and carefree; in winter, a tribal print adds a much-needed injection of warmth and sunshine.


Nothing says dynamic and powerful like a well-cut, well-fitting trouser. Gone are the days when trousers meant stuffy office wear. Trousers for women represents a leap in women’s liberation, so why not stick it to the patriarchy with a tribal print? Keep it modern and avoid flared bottoms. Instead, you should choose cigarette, straight-leg or wide-leg cuts.


All hail the dress for making life so easy! One-piece dressing is a godsend on those busy mornings, and you can easily go from work to out on the town with a tribal print dress. Summer dresses are a staple, and more structured tailoring is available in shift dresses. Search for more inspiration.
