Fall is my favorite time of the year because of the weather and the clothes. As the climate gets cooler, the clothes follow suite. While I basically live in leather jackets and layers of basics, I am always looking for fun ways to embellish my basic wardrobe in order to make it fall-chic. One way to do this is to add a tribal element, like this Fashionista did. She shows that it is easy to add a fun print to an outfit in a subtle way. The embroidered embellishment on her top gives interest and contrast to a basic outfit. She keeps it simple by pairing her top with dark skinny jeans and a gray oversized bag. By doing this, she draws attention to the contrasting tribal detailing and interesting neckline on her top.
Not only are tribal embellishments fashionable, but they can also be paired with fall essentials for an of-the-moment look. For example, our Fashionista’s top could easily be paired with a chic leather jacket when the weather cools down. To get a similar look, pair an embellished top with skinny jeans and an oversized bag. Then when fall comes, just add your favorite leather jacket. Another stylish option is to pair a tribal-inspired dress or sweater dress with tights and boots. For an earthier look, pair your tribal prints with one of fall’s popular shearling pieces, like a lined leather jacket or ankle boots. Then, your outfit will be just as cool as the fall weather.
Hint: Pairing simple pieces with one standout element, like our Fashionista did, is an easy way to make classic pieces transition through trends.
