I love the idea of the tribal trend. I love the colors, the textures and prints. But...I am far too white. I wish I could wear a floor-length caftan with the loudest print know to man. But - sigh - this is not in the cards for me.
Next best thing? How can I pop this trend into my wardrobe, without seeming forced, garish, or worse - wrong? First up: Missioni for Havianas. The comfort of Havianas patented rubber soles, with the colors and prints from the Missioni gods.
Then, I discovered Josh Goot (courtesy of Jak&Jil.com). While this dress may not traditionally fall within the tribal framework, I consider it to be a modern translation. And, one I would love to wear.
The California-girl in me can't help but fall in love with this take. Easy, chic and bohemian, but punched up with huge, tribal-inspired accessories. I could wear this every day.
