Tribal print trend

I’ve been really into the whole tribal print trend recently, and it’s inspired a small range of my prints this year. At the weekend I took a long over-due shopping trip to a big proper shopping centre type thing and saw loads of tribal print tops and dresses with a handprinted aesthetic to them. I didn’t buy any – they were much too short/figure hugging/see-through for me but I’d love to try and make my own using some of my lastest designs.

Here’s a quick round up of top tribal finds, ideas and inspiration:

First of all, read this post by Connie Wang to find out ‘What Fashion’s “Ethnic” Prints Are Really Called’ to get an overview of styles and historical context.

Then feast you’re eyes on these tribal/ethnic inspired gorgeous things:

Love the hand print look on this top by Forever 21


Tribal nails – how?? Very envious of people who can paint their nails so well! This is from Kelsie’s Nail Files.


Bold colours and shapes – love it. From Mrs Boho.


Fat quarter from tambocollection on Etsy.


Subtle tribal cushion from Chic Place.


Perfect little tribal print clutch bag from handbag,com – where else?!

Oh and here’s a peek of one of my tribal inspired prints – just in case you were interested!!


If you have any amazing tribal prints, products or trend you’ve found I’d love to see, leave me a link in the comments.
