There is a trend hitting down that involves wearing laid back, comfortable clothing and will still keep you looking incredibly stylish. The Tribal trend has been steadily building over a few seasons and, with no intention of dying down, is a good wardrobe investment. Light fabrics, neutral colours and exotic prints make for a fresh silhouette and the ability to layer makes it ideal for pre-spring dressing.
By now I'm sure you will have seen Miss Kendall Jenner dancing away in the new Mango video wearing this trend perfectly. The brand have just launched their Spring collection named 'Tribal' which encapsulates the mood of this trend perfectly. Here is my 'Must have' list of key pieces to snap up before they fly.
The everyday dress
A pretty, longer length floaty dress that really can be worn everyday. It feels fresh and new after the minimal, monochrome pieces that have filled shops for months. Wear now with black suede ankle boots, bare legs and a knitted cardigan (or black leather jacket for work). Think like the models on Isabel Marant's catwalk.
The natural knit
If a piece of casual knitwear scares you a little then style outside the box. I adore this long, oversized cardigan but as a smarter dresser I will pair it with a black slip dress and ankle boots. It would also look great over dark jeans and knotted with a slim leather belt. I can't think of anything I'd rather put on for work on a dark, cold morning.
The fringed or wooden sandal
Because it's too early for me to be looking at soft, suede, wrap up your leg sandals (watch this space). I also think if you purchase one piece this month a new pair of shoes are sure to brighten your mood. Wear with everything and enjoy just how fun they are. Tan is the colour of the moment. Think like Prada and style with ribbed black ankle socks for February.
The statement necklace
As good with a simple white tee as a floaty printed dress a statement, natural looking necklace will see you well into Autumn.
