Fashionista NOW: Tribal Minimal Fashion Inspiration

Can a minimalist dresser wear tribal prints? If so, how?

Tribal fashion is where the bold and bright prints, colors and textures go have their wildest party in an explosion of ethnic influences that tie in the innate need that we as humans have for attaching meanings in our lives.

Ethnic graphics have become a source of deep inspiration for global designers so much so that tribal fashion has come to encapsulate diverse indigenous work of art into a visual play of vibrant patterns and hues imbued on clothing and accessories.

It has become an annual fashion affair that sees runways for spring and summer splashed with tribal-inspired exoticism designed to reflect the heady warmth of the seasons along with the mysticism of warriors of ancient tribes and the desire for introducing colors and patterns into one’s wardrobe returns.

While the tribal motif can be quite out there in terms of color and design, the opportunity to tone it down presents itself in the manner of how one chooses to style it.

A minimal dresser with a wallflower-ish kind of personality may suffer panic attacks at the sight of a vibrantly hued and graphic tribal print. So how does one wear tribal prints in the presence of intense phobia for loud colors/patterns?

Find a toned down version of tribal prints. And tone everything else down to your level of comfort.

A tribal statement patterned top in Ganado style prints for instance can be worn casually with a pair of denim skirt. Keep the footwear neutral in a style you’re most inclined to wear and jewelry to a minimum.

Alternatively, you can opt to add some pizzazz by wearing it with a full pleated skirt and strappy heels, both in a neutral set of colors to complement the top, a perfect attire for a date night or brunch.

A minimalistic style of dressing ensures that you can take any statement printed piece of clothing and make it the primary point of visual interest while delegating the rest of the ensemble as a quiet background for contrast.

Print clashing isn’t exactly taboo in a minimal style wardrobe as long as the other print that comes in to complement is rendered subtle in design and muted in color.

As always, to the lookbooks below for delightful ways to go native while keeping it stylishly minimalistic:
