STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Terrific in Tribal

Tribal print has been an ongoing trend for many seasons and now it's bigger than it's ever been before. From bargain Forever 21 finds, to the runway, to the fringed handbags to the classic Minnetonka Moccasins, inspiration from the tribal trend is everywhere. 

This Fashionista exemplifies the simplicity of a modern tribal look. Her shirt, the basis of the ensemble, illustrates the most popular way to sport tribal trend: print on a tank top. Basic tees have been undergoing a makeover from the preferred long and tight fit to cropped and loose. Thankfully, these new tees have levels of how short they are, from baring midriff to just skimming the hips for those of us who don't dare to show off our bellies.

This Fashionista keeps it classic and cool by complementing the tank with a pair of cuffed, skinny jeans and classic flip flops. But, what really brings this look together is the accessories. Her bracelet is my favorite: a chunky gold bangle with bold coral detailing. Both turquoise and coral are my favorite colors for this summer — whether it be a little something extra on a piece of jewelry or the color of your nail polish. If you're looking for a pop of color somewhere, search for those two colors. A leather handbag and tortoise shades add a bit of contemporary detailing yet don't overdo the look.
