Summer Trend: Going Native

For those of you hoping to add some bold flavor to your wardrobe this season, look no further: the tribal trend has arrived.  From Aztec-print wedges to ethnic patterns imprinted on your everyday jean cut-offs, this is a look that is sure to stand up against the heat of summer. Careful not to overdo it - pattern play is a great way to have fun with the vibrant hues that are so popular right now, but too much of a good thing can leave even the most savvy fashionista looking like she got dressed in the dark.  Pair a tribal print skirt with a sheer blouse in a complimentary solid color for an ensemble that shows off your wild side while keeping the look fresh and put together.  Not crazy about making tribal print the focus of your outfit?  Try adding a touch of the trend by sporting a stone-encrusted bangle or geometric earrings, or swap out your trusted leather tote for a tribal-printed clutch.
