Tribal Beats

Do you hear that sound?  It's the tribal beats that are infused in this season's fashions.  It's time to take a walk on the wild side and spice up your wardrobe with tribal patterned clothing and accessories.  Tribal and ethnic inspired fashions have been spotted everywhere on the runway and are characterized with the use of fabrics that are printed and embellished with repeating shapes, colors, and beading.  These organic and earthy pieces bring us back to our roots with their rich materials and woven fabrics.  While tribal inspired garments are worn for their bold colors and complex designs they are also a cultural symbol.

Adding the right accessories can create a bohemian look when paired with tribal patterned clothes.  Jewelry that uses different shapes and patterns is great to mix and match with prints.  Shoppers can find everything from cuffs to necklaces this season that have been etched with aztec prints.  With the use of beaded bracelets, necklaces, and scarves it's easy to create an earthy look.

Some designers that have incorporated the use of tribal patterns into their lines are BCBG, Amanda Uprichard, Olive and Oak, Charlie Jade, Karlie, and Tory Burch.  Here's a look at some of our favorite tribal treasures that can be found at Monkee's of the Pines.  Happy shopping!
