A Taste of Tribal

If you are afraid of unleashing the Tribal Princess inside, or want your tribal in small tasty bites, then I would suggest working with accessories. From jewellery to scarves, shoes, and handbags, there’s a huge variety of ways to get to the look in a subtle way.

Sometimes you just want to spice up that tired or boring work look. I love to add an amazing pair of shoes to the classic work ensemble to give it a little of my own personality. Using just a touch of tribal is a great way to expand your wardrobe options too. If you have a whole global traveller/tribal look you usually wear, break it out a bit, mixing pieces in with other more basic looks.

As I was going through my wardrobe searching for pieces that would add to the tribal look, I realised I have lots of accessories that work this look and most of them weren’t very expensive! Huge bonus!

If you are want to add the look to your wardrobe without spending a fortune, accessories are definitely the way to do it. And quite honestly, bits and pieces of the tribal/global traveller trend have been around forever! The brown crocodile handbag in the photo is a vintage piece I picked up a few years ago that was made in the 50/60’s.

If you have a good look at some of your favourite vintage shops you are bound to find something with an animal print or that is chunky, ethnic, or handmade enough to go with the trend. I found these great shoes at Bitter Root Vintage and the price is SOOOOOOO right. Unfortunately, they aren’t my size and I’m at the beginning of my spending fast. Maybe one of you will love them as much as I do and add them to your wardrobe!
