Trend Alert: Stunning tribal prints meets the runway and highway
Attention ladies another trend has set the scene for the spring and summer collections of 2010! Tribal printed tops and bottoms hit the scene sometime last year, but it’s re-emergence has caused a massive uproar for the revamped look with strapless ruffled maxi dresses, swimwear apparel, and fresh tank tops with a massive splash of color and a functional zipper that comes down the middle. Celebrity moms like Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum, are able to pull off this look effortlessly.
Though women of any shape or size can rock this look, the most important thing that should be learned from this trend would definitely be less is more. Wearing aÂ minimal amount of jewelry will automatically draw attention to the area where the tribal print is located. Simple accessories and bold printed tops are a great combination for bothÂ day and night.
Since this trend is re-emerging on the runway, women everywhere (moms included) are anxious to try on these bright, abstract pieces. Tribal prints are best paired with simple sandals, flats, or heels (if it is a special occasion). But attention all mommas: if you decide to wear a dress that has a broad, wide print- wearing a belt will cinch in your waist and automatically slim you down a couple of inches. The most important thing about tribal prints would of course be… rock them will pure confidence.
When wearing tribal inspired clothing, the ladies here at Makeover Momma love to pair a printed top with a neutral colored gladiator shoes and a nice pair of cuffed, jean shorts. The classic look of the jean shorts will balance out the bold print and color of the top, which will make it presentable (even at a PTA meeting…..isn’t this a win-win situation??)
And if there is one last thing I want to leave you all with: it’s that curvy women should steer clear of large prints and frilly tribal tops (and mommas who are on the petite side, please refrain from long maxi dresses with one bold print on it).Â Other than that, I highly encourage you hard working moms to let your hair down, and sport this Bohemian look with pride and confidence.
