TREND: Tribal Beauty

Tribal print is one trend that seems to be reinvented in some shape or form every season. Designers such as Etro, Antik Batik, and Haute Hippie base their design aesthetic on colorful off-beat prints to be worn as separates, or even to be mixed and matched as made famous by blogger Man Repeller.

This Fashionista was looking particularly fierce strolling down Broadway in Morningside Heights with her boyfriend when I noticed her hair, so perfectly ombre’d it could put Rachel Bilson to shame. This FIT student’s clothing aesthetic was very worldly; all of her accessories were acquired through various travels — her ring was bought in Tibet, her bag was picked up in Argentina and her necklace was vintage Native American. Following suit, her T-shirt had a very interesting, navahoe-esque print that enhanced her tribal vibe. The tie in the front gives this Fashionista a waist, as well as creates a fun summer look paired with her Topshop Maxi skirt with sheer cut-outs. Her black flipflops just peeked out underneath her long skirt, and you can see the silver studded accents that go well with her bounty of jewelry. I have to commend this Fashionista for even on a hot summer day, to have put together such a cohesive outfit.

Hint: To get this Fashionista's tribal print top for less, check out this version sold at Mikkat Market. The best place to pick up eccentric jewelry are flea markets, my favorites include Brookyln Flea located on 176 Lafayette Ave, Brookyln, NY and the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market located on 39th and 9th.
