STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Tribal Instincts

Multicultural fashion is something that has crept its way onto runways across the country for decades now, and with good reason. There is so much inspiration that can be drawn from foreign cultures and when that is translated into a piece of clothing or a designer collection, it’s mesmerizing. Seeing it translated into street style is even better. It exudes confidence, expresses creativity (because pulling off a tribal print can be tricky) and radiates knowledge of fashion.

This Fashionista was spotted roaming Pepperdine’s campus in maybe one of the most adorable crop tops I have ever seen. I must admit, it also caught my eye because I recently almost purchased it in a black and white version. The print on this halter crop top is so unique with the little row of baby elephants and the low back that gives it a sexy side. Paired with a gauzy white full-length skirt and simple gold and leather accessories, this tribal influence look is done right. Combining this classic summer skirt with a more current piece, the tribal top, is what fashion is all about— taking runway trends and making them your own by pairing them with something you feel represents you best or a classic item.

This exact top can be found at Urban Outfitters and is very affordable. It is also a piece that can be worn with several things, allowing you to not feel restricted by the bold pattern. Pair it with a skirt just like our Fashionista, high-waisted jean shorts, black pants or even a flared jean with wooden platforms if you want to go all out! I personally love a tribal print for a bottom, skirts and pants to be exact. Look for a great tribal print pant at Topshop or a tribal print skirt at Free People. Start broadening your cultural horizons and get inspired!
