Designers including Diane Von Furstenberg, BCBG and Michael Kors have been heating up the runways with some fabulous ethnic prints and tribal inspired pieces this season! The Afrocentric trend is a perfect alternative to the floral print trend for those of us who like to oppose the ultra feminine trend. These edgy, colourful patterns are so bold they don’t need any accessorizing to look chic. Even though we’ve seen this trend before, the tribal wear for Spring/Summer 2012 is bigger and bolder than ever before! From Lauren Conrad to Khloe Kardashian, we’ve spotted our favourite celebs rocking these eye-catching tribal patterns!
We absolutely adore Khloe Kardashian’s silk Aztec print dress! Khloe’s dress has a beautiful hi-low cut, making her silhouette look ultra flirty despite the edgy prints! Khloe did an amazing job accenting her print dress with a bright orange pair of Jimmy Choo’s, which add a perfect dash of colour!
We’re totally inspired by Kristin Cavallari exotic maxi skirt! This gorgeous tribal printed skirt looks so chic with just a plain white tee to create an effortlessly casual bohemian appearance! We especially love the simplicity of this outfit! Since these prints are very prominent, we suggest to wear one print at a time, keeping the rest of the outfit simple yet trendy!
Camilla Belle looked chic wearing a black and white tribal print maxi dress while attending a Coldplay concert in LA! We love that Camilla is combining two of the summers hottest trends, maxi dresses and tribal prints! Camilla added a red Chanel bag, giving her neutral outfit a burst of colour!
Who wore it best?? Celebs including Ashley Tisdale, Lourdes Leo and Tara Reid are only a few of the many celebs that have been spotted wearing this gorgeous tribal print mini-dress by All Saints! We’re loving the mixture of sequences and cool geometric design! These girls look all at once fresh, sexy and feminine, it is no wonder why so many starlets are rocking this beautiful tribal mini!
Blake Lively never disappoints! Blake looked stunning in a yellow and black tribal print mini-dress by Marchesa. The Gossip Girl diva paired the lovely dress with elegant black Christian Louboutins, to create a magnificent outfit! With minimal jewellery and tied back hair, Blake definetly pulled off the “less is more” look!
Like these celebs, we also obsessing over this seasons exotic tribal print skirts, dresses and tops! This trend is so hot and is here to stay! We hope that everyone feels inspired to incorporate bold tribal prints into their summer wardrobe, we know that we can’t wait to!
