Animal print was a huge trend in 2010, and it doesn’t look like it’s set to change much for 2011. One of this Spring’s hottest looks is Tribal Fusion, which has moved the animal print trend on a step by mixing sophisticated styles, neutral shades and splashes of colour with contrasting prints and tribal-inspired accessories.
The look is laid back and effortless, with soft draping fabrics and easy to wear pieces brought to life by bold accessories and statement footwear, whether it’s a pair of killer wedges or jewelled flats.
Start with a pair of trousers in this season’s style – cropped; and the Tribal Fusion trend’s colour theme – neutral. This pair from Oasis would fit the bill perfectly, thanks to the mushroom colour and the soft drapey fabric, which creates the laid back base of the tribal look.
Pair with an animal printed top for a bold tribal look, or tone it down with a simple vest, such as this layered jersey top from Firetrap, which is also available in white, and some printed bangles to add that subtle tribal edge.
For full on tribal glamour, a bold printed maxi dress is the way to go, mixing two huge trends for the upcoming seasons. Or if you’re feeling a bit more daring, go for an on-trend jumpsuit like this sexy South number, which combines the perfect tribal colour and fabric with one of the key shapes for the spring/summer season.
And there’s no need to wait for the warmer weather to get to grips with this style, just cover up with a smart coat, such as this sand coloured trench from Vila, or continue the laid back look with a South silk parka.
So whatever your style, whether it’s prints, neutrals, jumpsuits or maxi’s, join the tribe and get the look at Littlewoods.com.
