Looking at the spring trends 2014, don’t you feel like you have seen them before? Everything is kind of rotating. What’s new are the silhouettes, prints, and the way you style them. Peaking into my closet I can find several pieces that are hot right now without going shopping. Today I am focusing on TRIBAL. Now I know that this trend is not on the top 10 list, but it’s there and I chose to mention it because I feel like a lot of us can relate to it!

When I think of tribal, what comes to my mind is: touch of boho, relaxed, earthy, vibrant colors, bold prints, stitching, and handcrafted. This trend is great for all the free spirits out there that like a casual, down to earth style. But it’s up to your personal style on how far you want to take it. Head to toe or just a touch. The easiest way, like with any other trend, is to play around with accessories. You can also incorporate the fringe trend if you like. Depending what you wear it with, you can take it from girly to edgy!




I shopped my own closet to show you two of my tribal inspired pieces and how I am wearing them. First up is my dress that I got from a boutique in Heidelberg, Germany years ago. The contrast of the dark  and bright is fabulous. The halter-neck with ruffles is flattering and adds a touch of romance. Second, my Rachel Roy vest. Absolutely love it, I can through it on with everything and I feel instantly stylish. I also have these handcrafted necklaces that would be great with  a jeans & T-shirt look.
