I rather like the current Tribal/Global Traveller Trend.
Not sure if it’s my current addiction to orange, that seems so predominate in the look, or that as a young”ish” girl growing up in North America I loved all things Native American. Whatever the cause, I knew I had to somehow embrace the look.
The real question, “How do I incorporate this ‘worldly and somewhat wild’ look into my life in regional Australia? And as amazing as the current Burberry Prorsum looks are, how to try to get a bit of the look on a regular girls’ budget?
My excuse came in the form of tickets to the 14 March 7:00 pm runway show at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Not just any tickets mind you but second row! As thrilled as I was at having the tickets, my anxiety level shot straight through the roof! “What will I wear?”, was keeping me up at night!
…I worried about would it even be too try hard for LMFF. I soooo did not want to be that girl/woman!
And, as I second guessed what I would wear to the runway shows, I decided, “what the heck”, I’d wear the dress to the International Women’s Day Luncheon. After all, I’m an international woman, and the dress was certainly well into the “global traveller trend”.
I opted to tone the look down a little…we are in regional (read conservative) Victoria and it is a luncheon not LMFF. So I ditched the insanely high black leather heels, and black leather jacket, as well as the gold hand pounded neck-cuff, for something a wee bit more “lady who lunches”.
* Please forgive the somewhat terrified look on my face. I hate having photos taken at the best of times and taking it myself, knowing it would be on the internet for the world to see didn’t help the nerves!*
As you can see, I toned it all down with the black shrug rather than the black leather bomber jacket, and changed from the super high black heels to the not-so-high orange ones!
My recommendation – give the Global Traveller Trend a try…show your Tribal side!
