Tribal Prints

John Marine | 10:46 PM | | | | | | |
Tribal (or ethnic) prints have trended for the longest. They offer unique colorful prints to compliment a number of different outfits. They provide unique edginess as well as a smattering of color. Everything from intimates to dresses (and even footwear) can be adorned with tribal prints of some kind. For the most part, tribal prints have become a go-to style for warm weather fashion, and many a fashionista have been awed over the styling touch tribal prints provide. When it comes to tribal prints, you will mostly see feminine pieces with wild and intricate tribal prints, mostly with bottoms and dresses. Some tribal tops are worn, and you may even see tribal print rompers/playsuits. Tribal prints even can be found on footwear. I've seen wedge sandals that have tribal prints to them, for example.

The only real problem (if any) in regards to tribal prints is the feeling of certain Indian tribes being disgraced seeing such prints featured. In fact, there was one time in which Coach had a controversial marketing campaign called "A Tribe Called Coach." A number of their wares was considered offensive to certain Native American tribes, including a red skull from one of their bracelets. The outrage led some people to think Coach could give back to Native American communities and tribes instead of trying to financially profit from certain Native American communities.

IN CASE YOU'RE INTERESTED: You can read more about Coach's controversial "A Tribe Called Coach" line from this article: Native Americans insulted by Coach handbags’ ‘Tribe Called Coach’ collection.

--- Tribal Prints: Final Thoughts ---

As a styling exercise, I haven't any problem with tribal prints. I don't find them as any sort of fashion faux pas. Only thing I would probably discourage is trying to combine more than one set of tribal prints. So for example, go with only one tribal print item to serve as your tribal print piece. Don't try to do any pattern clashing or anything. Tribal prints offer a great base of style. The uniquely edgy style of tribal print makes them wearable and fashionable for any number of applications. Don't think this styling exercise can only be for things like music festivals. If you're daring, try going with any number of tribal print garments and accessories for any number of situations or styles. You will not disappoint as long as you have a great eye for style by trying to style tribal prints.
