Tribally inspired.

In contrast to the 1950s Americana that I love so much, one of this season's big trends is tribal chic, and of course I just couldn't pass that by.. I have always loved travel and seeing other cultures, so of course tribal looks fascinate me in that kind of ethnic way (although I am always convinced I could get better stuff in Asia/Africa for 10% of the price!). Today I decided to make my look eclectically tribal, and quite a statement.


Blazer & Skirt - ASOS; Top - Pull & Bear; Tights - Primark; Shoes - New Look; Belt - H&M; Earrings, Ring, Cross Bracelet & Hand Chain Bracelet - Topshop; Necklace - Accessorize.

The basis of my tribal outfit was this ASOS skirt, which I have had for years (tribal just keeps coming back around!), and then I kept to a fairly limited colour palette of blues, blacks and golds, apart from my colour pop shoes. My jewellery was definitely integral to this tribal look, adding the especially ethnic edge. The feather necklace is gorgeous and such a statement, whereas the hand chain was just completely gorgeous and reminiscent of Indian style. I absolutely love it and will probably be wearing it a lot more! For once I also left my lips pretty much bare and focused on my eyes, doing a daytime version of a peacock eyeshadow by blending gold into medium blue shadow.

What do you all think of globally inspired style?

Love and kisses, Tara xox
