Shopping my wardrobe-Tribal Prints

Another gorgeous trend this coming season is tribal prints and designers such as Marc Jacobs and Dries Van Noten have featured them on the catwalk for summer:

I thought I'd shop my wardrobe for this trend and this summer I'll be wearing again my New Look wrap dress with a tribal print:


I'll also be wearing my Ikat print tunic by French Connection which I also purchased last year:


Will you be in tribal prints this summer?

I think the dress is a great example of tribal prints! And what a good fit on you. The colors in the tunic are beautiful, too, Sharon! I recently thrifted a long piece of tribal cloth. When I spent time in Burkina Faso years ago, I purchased several.of them. They are worn wrapped around the waist as a skirt. (I can't remember the name of the garment/style.) If I can find a top to wear with my recently purchased one, I'll wear it soon.

I love tribal prints and that French Connection tunic is absolutely stunning on you, what a bargain!
I can't believe that wrap dress is New Look, it look pure class on your elegant figure.
As always I prefer your interpretation of fashion to the catwalk version, you are one inspiring lady.

Cannot believe this, Sharon, 50p? Looks fab. I will only do tribal if I can find a dress like at that price!!!! Ciao. A.

Super stylish. I especially love the Ikat print tunic. With gorgeous legs like yours you could also wear it as a mini dress, I think.

Karima said...

I wish I was better at thrifting. I know so many people who pick up AMAZING stuff for next to nothing but I'm never very good at going into charity shops or hitting up markets. I really should start...

Anusha said...

I LOVE tribal prints!! If I can find any clothes like this around here I'll definitely be wearing them. I adore your FC tunic! Gorgeous print.

Years ago a university friend brought me back a gorgeous tunic from Africa with a vibrant tribal print. I wore that *so* much it wore out. I wish I could get another one.

The tribal prints called "BATIK", it is Indonesian heritage and so proud Dries Van Noten brought it to the runway.
